CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Brendan Woods scored two goals, including the game-winner, against his former team and Max Lagace made 28 saves as the Providence Bruins defeated the Charlotte Checkers, 4-1, on Saturday night. The victory marks the third consecutive win for Providence, which ties for the longest win streak so far this season.

JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

“For the most part, I thought we had good structure on our breakouts. We were able to get in on the forecheck from time to time and didn’t give them much through the middle of the ice.

“We got a couple of timely goals and they were pushing hard in the third. We were able to capitalize on some odd-man rushes when they were up the ice and usually that’s the way a road win works. We were fortunate to get it tonight.”

BRENDAN WOODS - TWO GOALS

“It obviously feels good to put two in against your former team. I have to give credit to my linemates. They’re finding me in tight situations and things are going in, so hopefully it stays that way.

“I feel good. I really have to credit my trainers and strength coach. They were right there making sure my conditioning stayed up to par, so it really didn’t feel like I missed too much time when I cam back. Things are going my way right now and hopefully we can keep that momentum going and keep this streak going for the team.”
