SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Jack Studnicka led the way with two goals and two assists as the Providence Bruins defeated the Syracuse Crunch, 6-2, on Saturday night. Oskar Steen also recorded three points of his own while Max Lagace collected his 17th win of the season. Providence was two-for-four on the power play and four-for-four on the penalty kill.

JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

“We played the way we wanted to play for the first 15 minutes of the game. It was a good response from last night.

“We got into some penalty trouble and our goaltender stood tall for us. We were able to score on the power play and I thought we had a really solid third on the road for a big two points.”

JACK STUDNICKA - TWO GOALS, TWO ASSISTS

“I think anytime you can get something done early in the game to help contribute to the team - whether that’s a goal, a blocked shot, or a big faceoff win - it helps get your legs under you and hopefully have a good game after that.

“Obviously we didn’t play the way we wanted to last night. It was nice to kind of come together and get a big team win.”
