Tonight the Providence Bruins head to Worcester in hopes of coming up victorious against the Sharks once again.  The Division rivals have met a handful of times already this season with the Sharks holding a tough 4-1 record.  However, all of the games have been decided by one goal, three of them being decided by a shootout.

The two teams combined tallied 144 penalty minutes the last time they faced off against each other with the Sharks skating away with a 5-4 victory. Currently the Bruins are 1 point ahead of the Sharks in the Atlantic Division.

Last night Niklas Svedberg made 43 saves while Justin Florek, Lane MacDermid, Jordan Caron and Chris Bourque led the B’s to a 4-2 victory improving their record to 9-1-0-1 in their last 12 games.
