BRIDGEPORT, CT. - Jack Studnicka extended his point streak to three games, but Bridgeport’s three goals in the first period were too much to overcome, as the Providence Bruins fell to the Sound Tigers, 4-2, on Saturday night. Brendan Woods also scored for Providence in the loss, with Alex Petrovic and Paul Carey picking up the assists. Providence outshot Bridgeport, 46-25.

JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

“I think the first four minutes were good. Then we just made mistakes that can’t happen. It’s very unacceptable at this point of the season. We haven’t played in a week so we were sleeping a little bit, but the second goal was essentially the same play. We didn’t learn from our mistake on the first goal and that’s unacceptable. It’s really a shame because we did start the game the right way, but we had to chase it.

“We were able to find our game in the third, but by then it was too late. Chasing a 3-0 deficit usually doesn’t end up in your favor and that’s what happened tonight. “

JACK STUDNICKA - ONE GOAL

“I think we had some chances in the first period that we didn’t bear down on. They had their chances and were able to capitalize. It’s hard to come back from a three-goal deficit, but the boys didn’t give up and we fought until the end.”
