P-BRUINS FALL TO MANCHESTER MONARCHS, 5-2
MANCHESTER, NH – The Providence Bruins fell to the Manchester Monarchs tonight at the Verizon Wireless Arena.
The Monarchs were quick to gain possession of the puck early on in the game and kept it primarily in the Providence zone. At 3:37 Ben Youds got a delay-of-game penalty and was sent to the box, but Manchester was unable to capitalize on the power play. The score remained 0-0 and the P-Bruins still had not gotten a shot off. With 13:33 left in the period, the P-Bruins scored on their first shot of the game. Bryce Aneloski earned his first goal of the season assisted by Alexander Khokhlachev and Jordan Caron. Khokhlachev and Caron didn’t stop there; the two forwards proved to be a strong duo when they were again credited with the assists on the second goal scored by David Pastrnak at 12:15. The Monarchs finally got one past Malcolm Subban with 3:00 left in the period. The goal was scored by Justin Auger assisted by Jeff Schultz and Nick Shore and despite the Monarchs outshooting the P-Bruins 11-6, the period ended with the P-Bruins leading the Monarchs 2-1.
Both teams came out strong in the second period. It looked like the P-Bruins would have another chance to score when Monarchs’ forward Jordan Weal was sent to the penalty box for hooking at 7:47, but Manchester’s penalty kill thwarted Providence’s chances. With 2:42 left in the period, Manchester defenseman Derek Forbort tied things up with help from teammates Shore and Brian O’Neill. Not even a minute later, Forbort potted another one into the back of the net and the Monarchs took the lead 3-2. Weal and Auger got the assists on the goal.
The P-Bruins and the Monarchs started off the third period battling hard and Providence was eager to take back control of the game. At 15:55, Manchester insured their lead with a goal from Shore, his third point of the game, assisted by Auger. As the clock winded down, the P-Bruins were fighting to get another goal and Subban was ready to head to the bench to send another skater on the offensive. But with 2:08 left in the game, Vincent LoVerde notched another goal for the Monarchs, assisted by Nic Dowd. The final score was 5-2.
