The Providence Bruins have extended their winning streak to 6 games with a 3-2 victory over the Manchester Monarchs on Sunday afternoon. Torey Krug had the game winning goal on the power play, while Carter Camper and Craig Cunningham had the P-Bruins other goals, and Niklas Svedberg made 21 saves in net. Defenseman Zach Trotman returned to the lineup, after missing a month with a concussion. Today also marked Captain Trent Whitfield‘s 1,000th professional game.
Providence is now just 1 point behind division-leading Portland, who they will face tomorrow evening at the Dunkin Donuts Center in a make-up game that was originally scheduled for last Friday but had to be postponed due to the snowstorm.
Camper opened up the scoring at 4:46 of the 1st period. It was his 6th of the season, assisted by Krug and Justin Florek. This extended Camper and Krug’s point streaks to 6 games. Cunningham made the lead 2-0 late in the 1st with his 11th goal of the season, assisted by Camper and Garnet Exelby. Krug’s power play goal came in the 2nd period and was assisted by Camper and Ryan Spooner.
The 3 stars of the game: (3) Cunningham; (2) Krug; (1) Camper.
The P-Bruins play at home again tomorrow night against Portland, and will play another rescheduled game from Saturday night, on Tuesday night against the Manchester Monarchs again in Manchester.
