PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Paul Carey scored the lone goal for the Providence Bruins on Friday night as they fell to the Hartford Wolf Pack, 3-1, at Dunkin’ Donuts Center. After the game was knotted at one at the end of the first period, the two teams battled until the final horn, with Hartford scoring the game-winning goal at the 19:33 mark before adding an empty net goal. Dan Vladar got the start for the P-Bruins and recorded 28 saves on 30 shots.

JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

 

“I think we deserved a point. I think we would have liked to get some more shots, but it would’ve been nice to grab a point there.

“We give their goalie a lot of credit. He stands right in there and finds the puck. We’ve just had a tough time getting pucks past him.

“We have to keep going at it. We have to keep getting to the front of the net. We have to keep forechecking. This will make us a better team in the end. We can’t let up and we have to learn from this.”

PAUL CAREY - ONE GOAL

“I thought we played great tonight. It was a great effort from everyone. We had a couple guys back in the lineup. Vladdy (Dan Vladar) played great. We’ve just got to find a way to score another one there.

“We know if that game went to overtime we had a great chance of winning. We just need to worry about the next two games this weekend. I thought everyone played well tonight. It was just one puck bounce and they end up winning the game.”
