P-BRUINS FALL TO SPRINGFIELD FALCONS, 5-2
SPRINGFIELD, MA – The Providence Bruins fell to the Springfield Falcons tonight at the Mass Mutual Center.
The two teams didn’t waste any time and both put points up in the first period. Providence’s Ryan Spooner broke the ice and was credited with the first goal just 4:14 into the game assisted by Ben Youds and Anthony Camara. Springfield came back a few minutes later and Mike Hoeffel put one in the back of the net past Adam Morrison. Jerry D’Amigo and Jaime Sifers were credited with the assists on the Falcons’ goal. At 11:33 Zach Trotman was sent to the penalty box for a high stick and the Falcons were eager to capitalize on the 5 on 4. Sean Collins got one in the Providence net with help from teammates T.J. Tynan and Austin Madaisky on that power play and Springfield took the lead 2-1. The P-Bruins came right back with a goal when they were sent on the power play at 13:03. Ethan Werek got his first goal of the season, assisted by Frankie Simonelli. With just 1:10 left in the period, Madaisky got his second point of the night assisted by Tynan and Thomas Larkin and the first period ended with the Falcons leading the P-Bruins 3-2.
The intensity on the ice in the second period was high as the P-Bruins tried to take back the lead, but Madaisky put the Falcons even further ahead when he scored at 6:48. Kerby Rychel and Michael Chaput earned the assists on Madaisky’s goal. Even though Providence outshot Springfield 11-3 in the second period, they were unable to get the puck past the Falcons goaltender, Anton Forsberg, and the teams retreated to their respective locker rooms with a score of 4-2 to take them into the third.
The third period was a lot of back-and-forth play and the shots-on-goal were an even 6-6 between the P-Bruins and the Falcons. Several penalties showed opportunities for scoring chances for both teams, but neither put up any points until Springfield scored for the fifth time with 12:25 left in regulation. Tynan took advantage of the tripping penalty against Justin Florek and scored on the powerplay with help from Marko Dano and Collins. Final score: P-Bruins 2, Springfield Falcons 5.
