PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Peter Cehlarik scored two goals in the third period, but the Providence Bruins fell to the Hershey Bears, 3-2, on Saturday night in the shootout. Trent Frederic picked up two helpers in the loss, while Cooper Zech and Brett Ritchie each recorded one assist of their own. Max Lagace got the start in goal and recorded 30 saves.

JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

“I didn’t like our game in the first two periods. I thought they competed harder than we did in those two periods. However, I liked our response in the third. We responded and played the way we need to play.

“We have to focus in on the way we played in the third and use that as a learning experience. We obviously got a point in a tight division and we’ll need to continue to collect those as we move forward into the second half.”

PETER CEHLARIK - TWO GOALS

“It’s been good playing with Brett (Ritchie) and Trent (Frederic). We work in a straight line and get hard on the forecheck. We work hard to create turnovers and find each other in those tough areas. It’s been good so far.

“I think we just need to improve on our starts at home. We need to start a little quicker and try to get the lead on home ice. We just need to keep working hard and the results will show with the skill we have. We’ve got to be getting on the right side of pucks, doing the right things, and maintaining a high compete level.”
