WILKES-BARRE, PA. - Dan Vladar recorded 19 saves, but the Providence Bruins were unable to find the back of the net and fell to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, 1-0, on Friday night. Providence outshot the Penguins 23-20 in the loss and will travel to Hartford, Connecticut ahead of Saturday night’s matchup against the Hartford Wolf Pack.

JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

“I liked our first. We broke out pucks well and had a couple pretty nice chances that we just didn’t score on. Their goalie made some nice saves. Then in the second period we scored on our own net and I think we got a bit frustrated as the night went on.

“They did a nice job of bottling things up and ultimately that was the game. If you don’t score any goals and you score on your own net, that usually means you’re going to lose the game.”

PAUL CAREY

“I would say, as a whole, we played a pretty solid game. We got pucks in deep and pucks to the net. We got some shots on net, but just couldn’t find a way to score.

“Our mindset going into tomorrow stays the same. We’re going to get pucks in deep, forecheck and shoot. We’ve got to get some bodies to the net and hopefully we’ll leave with two points.”

STATS

- Since returning from injury, Dan Vladar has stopped 138 of 143 shots over the course of five games for a .965 save percentage.

- Robert Lantosi led the P-Bruins with four shots on goal.

- Twelve of 18 Providence skaters recorded at least one shot on goal.

- Friday’s contest marks just the second time this season that Providence failed to score a goal in regulation.
