HERSHEY, PA. - Paul Carey scored his team-leading seventh goal of the season and Jakub Zboril notched his first goal of the season, but the Providence Bruins fell to the Hershey Bears, 5-3, on Saturday night. Brendan Woods also scored his first goal of the season tonight, while Kyle Keyser recorded 25 saves for Providence.

JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

“We were playing a desperate group who had come off a big loss the night before. That didn’t sit well with them and I don’t think we matched their intensity. The most unfortunate part for our group is we were tied at three going into the third period and it was right there for us. We did not step up our game so it was a disappointing loss and one we’ll have to learn from.

JAKUB ZBORIL - ONE GOAL, ONE ASSIST

“We just couldn’t really figure out a way to get our legs going. They jumped on us right at the start of the third with those two quick goals and we just weren’t able to get the score back after that.

It was a tough loss for us, but we just have to learn from it and be better moving forward.”
