Providence Ties The Series At 1
Last night was game two of the Conference finals against the Syracuse Crunch. The Providence Bruins fell in-game one. The Bruins were looking to even the series and they did just that.
Syracuse got an early lead scoring just 1 minute into the game. The Crunch were able to hold the lead for the rest of the period as the Bruins were not able to produce many scoring chances. After a great penalty kill the P-B’s were able to gain some life and energy and started making chances. Then late in the second they found themselves on the power play. Danton Heinen was able to find Jordan Szwarz in and Szwarz was able to put ti in and tie the game at one. Thus the game was tied at one heading into the third.
The third went scoreless with plenty of chances from both teams, and so overtime was needed. Finally at 8:28 of OT Wayne Simpson found Szwarz again at the tops of the circles and Szwarz fired a wrister that found its way through and gave the Bruins the win.
