UTICA, N.Y. - Max Lagace recorded a 34-save shutout on Friday night as the Providence Bruins handed the Utica Comets their first loss of the season, 2-0. Joona Koppanen scored his first goal of the season and Zach Senyshyn scored the gamewinning goal in Providence’s second consecutive road victory.

JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

“We were able to get out to an early lead with a sustained forecheck, which is something we talked about. They were certainly pressing throughout the night, but when we broke down our goaltender was able to make the big stops. I thought we managed the puck when we needed too. We got timely goaltending and goal scoring and ultimately beat a really good team in a really tough building and we’re excited for the two points.”

MAX LAGACE - 34-SAVE SHUTOUT

“It was a big team win against a really good team. The guys came in and played really hard in front of me.

We were motivated to make a statement against a good team in their building when they were undefeated.

The guys played great in front of me and it was great to get two points. ”
