Definitely a great start for the Bears, but the biggest strength of the Bruins – their up-ice rush and speed – stood out for me. After the hosts scored off of a faceoff win, the duo of Brandon DeFazio and Andrew Cherniwchan combined to put Providence in front 2-1 late in the period.
That’s where we stand after one.
And yet ANOTHER former member of our ECHL affiliate, the South Carolina Stingrays, has found a way to burn the Bears.
Box score here. Another point for Travis Boyd and Chris Bourque.
