PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Sean Bonar recorded 25 saves for his first career AHL victory and Jack Studnicka collected three points as the Providence Bruins defeated the Hershey Bears, 6-3, on Sunday afternoon. Urho Vaakanainen recorded his second career twogoal game and Samuel Asselin collected his first career point in the victory.

JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

“It was a good weekend. We obviously had a terrific game on Friday night. On Saturday, we had a terrible first period, but we rebounded, showed some character and really did a nice job.

“Today, I thought our first 35 minutes were really good. They got some life and it sounds ridiculous, but it is tough to play with a four-goal lead for an extended period of time. We knew they would push, but we did a nice job and it was awesome to see a guy like Bonar in net get the win, which is always fun.”

URHO VAAKANAINEN - TWO GOALS

“I felt really good. I was excited to come back here and play, so it felt awesome. I thought the first 35 minutes or so were really good. We kind of took our foot off the gas pedal, so we have to try to play a better 60 minutes.

“My first game back yesterday, I felt like I had a lot of time and space to make plays and that kind of carried over into today. Being up in Boston helps your confidence. You’re practicing against guys like Bergeron, Pastrnak and Marchand, which really makes you that much better and helps your confidence.”
