PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The Providence Bruins scored three times in the third period, but gave up two goals in the final 41 seconds of regulation and lost in overtime, 6-5, to the Springfield Thunderbirds. Paul Carey and Brendan Gaunce both scored two goals for the P-Bruins, while Jack Studnicka led all Providence skaters with three points. The P-Bruins outshot the Thunderbirds, 40-30, and went four-for-five on the penalty kill.

JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

“That was our third game in three nights and that was their second in three. They are a highly offensive group and they are tough to defend. You’re going to get games like that.

“We have a group over here that’s certainly trying their hardest and perhaps a little fatigued. Then you have a group over there that’s excellent offensively. You’re going to get these games. These two teams always have entertaining games. Some nights they’re fun to be apart of and some nights, like tonight, they’re not.”

PAUL CAREY - TWO GOALS

“It was definitely a tough way to end the weekend. I thought we deserved to win that game. We’ve got to find a way to dig in and keep those pucks out of the net. We’ve got to be a little more disciplined when it comes down to crunch time like that. Overall, I thought we played good and we can build off that. We’re not happy with one point, but we’ll take it.”
