OVERTIME HEARTBREAKER ENDS HOME WIN STREAK

PROVIDENCE, RI- The P-Bruins fell to the Pirates in a 2-1 overtime loss, despite outshooting Portland 46-32. The home win streak dies at 10, but the home point streak extends to 11.

It was scoreless after the first 20 minutes, but the P-Bruins came away with multiple quality scoring chances and outshooting the Pirates 13-9.

The Pirates got on the board 7:51 into the second period when Regner capitalized on the power play. The P-Bruins had a chance to retaliate when Olsen was issued a tripping minor, but the #1 power play unit in the AHL looked uncharacteristically sloppy.

Colton Hargrove netted the equalizer early in the third. Seth Griffith possessed the puck in the corner during a scrum and passed to Hargrove in the slot who one timed it past Brittain. The rest of the third period was spent mostly in the P-Bruins offensive zone and despite outshooting the Pirates 14-9, regulation ended knotted up at 1-1.

The P-Bruins had a goal waved off midway through the 5 minutes 3v3 overtime period and continued to fire away at Brittain. Malcolm Subban made multiple key stops including denying Portland of a breakaway goal. But puck luck was not on the side of Providence tonight, as Rob Schremp of the Pirates potted the game winner with just 0:40 left on the clock.

The P-Bruins are back home at the Dunk tomorrow January 18th against the Hartford Wolf Pack at 3:05pm.
