PROVIDENCE FORCES SHOOTOUT, COMES AWAY WITH 1 POINT
PROVIDENCE, R. I. – The P-Bruins forced the overtime and shootout but only came away with one point against the Portland Pirates.
Colton Hargrove was the first on the score sheet, scoring 14:24 into the first period, burying the puck in a scrum in front of the net. Noel Acciari and Chris Casto were credited with the assists.
The Pirates responded with a goal of their own under a minute later when Kyle Rau’s laser shot past Malcolm Subban’s right shoulder.
Portland scored a go-ahead goal 12:37 into the third period to make the score 2-1. Harper got his first of the season with Olson and Gaunce chipping in with the helpers.
Anton Blidh responded with a goal of his own less than a minute later to tie the game 2-2. Colby Cave and Garry Nunn with the assists.
Regulation ended with the score knotted at 2-2 sending the game into a five minute period of sudden-death 3v3 over time. The P-Bruins had many close chances, but neither team could find the back of the net.
In the resulting shootout, Rau of the Pirates was the only skater to score and gave Portland the win. Subban stopped Rob Schremp and Connor Brickley’s attempts. Max Talbot, Austin Czarnik, and Cave were Providence’s chosen three skaters - but none could get it past McKenna.
Despite the overtime loss, Providence had much to celebrate. The P-Bruins defense held Portland to only three shots in the second period and another three in the third. Providence also outshot Portland 27-17.
