Today the Providence Bruins take on the Adirondack Phantoms at home for the first time this season. The Bruins are looking to take the third and final game of their schedule, picking up wins both Friday and Saturday night. The Phantoms are also coming off of a victory last night after defeating the Crunch in their first shootout of the season.

This evening the Bruins look to gain another two points in the standings to take control of first place in the Atlantic Division, a far cry from being last just a week and a half ago.  Last night the Bruins were able to come from behind once again and defeat the Worcester Sharks in a shootout with a goal from Max Sauve who just returned from an injury.  Chris Bourque was also able to register and assist last night with a helper on Bartkoswi’s goal, preserving his team points lead.

As the Bruins look to earn a win against the Phantoms this afternoon there is one man that should be on their radar.  The name, Brayden Schenn. In 22 games this season Schenn has posted 11 goals and 14 assists for 25 points.  That’s 9 points more than team leading Chris Bourque has for the Bruins.  Their goaltending isn’t too shabby either with Scott Munroe expected to be in net.  Munroe has a .918 save percentage and 2.51 goals against average in 14 games played.  He holds a record of 7-5-2 on the season so far.

Face off is at 4:05pm. You can watch the game on AHL live for a small fee or listen online on the AHL Official website.
