ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Paul Carey scored a goal for the third consecutive game and the Bruins converted three times on the power play as they defeated the Rochester Americans, 4-3, on Wednesday night. Providence also added a shorthanded goal from Jack Studnicka, while Max Lagace made 32 saves in his fourth win of the season.

JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

“I thought we started off well. We wanted to get in on the forecheck and we did that. Unfortunately we took a couple penalties early and gave them a little momentum. Our kill was there to help us out and then we were able to pounce on a couple power play opportunities that put us up by a few goals. We were feeling good heading into the third. They scored two on us and it got a little tight. With our goaltending and a timely goal on the 5-on-3, we were able to get the win. We’ll take two points any time we can coming into a building like this against a good team like Rochester.”

ROBERT LANTOSI - ONE POWER-PLAY GOAL

“Petro got it at the blue line so I found space on the far circle and I knew I had to get it on net. It went in and I’m happy about that.

I think we played a pretty solid game for the first two periods. We had a rough start to the third, but we came out on top and we’re happy about those two points.

We’ll try to keep it going. It’s a good start to the week and we have to continue on with that same attitude and be prepared for Friday’s game.”
