HERSHEY, PA. - Three players recorded multi-point games and 13 players overall recorded a point for the P-Bruins, as Providence skated to a 7-6 shootout victory on Wednesday night. Robert Lantosi and Jakub Lauko both scored in the shootout, while Max Lagace stopped two of three Hershey shooters to secure the victory.

JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

“It was a tough start for us, going down 3-0 and we really weren’t playing very well. We were able to climb back in with a couple of goals and then it was a back-and-forth battle. I thought in the third, we found our game and put pucks behind them while getting in on the forecheck.

“In those kind of games, the scores often go back-and-forth like that and that’s what happened. We were able to seal it in the shootout. We’ll take the two points and certainly learn from some of the mistakes we made.”

BRENDAN WOODS - ONE GOAL, ONE ASSIST

“I felt better than I expected I would out there. I have to give a lot of credit to the training staff for making sure they kept my conditioning up while I was out for a little bit.

“Freddy made a great play to find me in the slot and it felt great to put that one home. I’m looking forward to returning to Charlotte and hopefully we can keep the ship moving in the right direction and keep this thing going.”
