P-Bruins lose season opener 3-1

News

Providence, RI – The Providence Bruins outshot the Devils 14-5 in the third period but it was not enough to offset their sluggish start.

The Devils took advantage of the P-Bruins’ flat-footed first period scoring two goals within 0:15 of each other. Albany’s Thompson rifled off a low shot from the top of the circle that beat Malcolm Subban on his glove side. Just seconds later Quenneville buried a rebound to put the Devils up 2-0 9:51 into the period. Albany was able to capitalize on the power play 3:43 later, with Chris Casto in the box for a cross checking minor. After turning away 4 of 7 shots faced, Malcolm Subban was replaced by Zane McIntyre with 6:26 to play in the period. Albany’s Gormley was called for interference with 11 seconds to play in the first, giving Providence the man-p advantage going into the second.

Peter Mueller made it a two goal game 17:39 into the middle frame with his first goal as a P-Bruin. Jake DeBrusk made a nice outlet pass to Mueller in the neutral zone who beat his defender and unleashed a wrist shot from the top of the left circle. The helper was DeBrusk’s first professional point. Matt Bartkowski was credited with the secondary.

Providence really found their stride in the third period, outshooting the Devils 14-5 and creating quality scoring chances. Albany’s Wedgewood flashed the glove multiple time to preserve the two goal differential. The P-Bruins went 0 for 6 on the power play during the night, Albany 1 for 2.

The P-Bruins are back at home this Sunday, October 16th against the St. John’s Ice Caps.
