Providence Bruins Need To Rally As They Lose Game Five
Unfortunately for the P-Bruins they were unable to take the series lead over Hershey Bears Sunday afternoon.
The Providence Bruins lost 3-2 in overtime. Even though they lost, there was a lot of upside. The prospects played very well, especially Jake Debrusk who has been a standout this playoffs.
On the upside the Bruins have been in this scenario before. Just like Boston, Providence does not back down from a challenge and likes to be the underdog. The game started off with the Bears grabbing the first goal of the game. This was the first time in 10 games that the B’s allowed a first period goal.
Captain Tommy Cross tied the game up at one in the second. Following Cross’ goal the bears regained the lead. Then it around the halfway mark of the third Austin Czarnik potted the second tying goal to bring it to 2-2. Czarnik was assisted by Jake DeBrusk who has been outstanding this playoffs.

Another recurring problem for the Bruins is that hey continue to out-shot Hershey as they did again in game 5. The B’s had 29 and Hersey only had 15 in regulation.
“I think we’ll be on the edge of desperation Tuesday, which we should be, and our backs are against the wall and for the most part – it’s hard to say you’re desperate during the regular season, but we only lost two games in a row I think once after October, maybe November,” said Dean.
Providence heads back to Hershey for game 6 and 7 if needed. Game six is tonight at 7:05.
“There’s seven games for a reason,” said Noel Acciari. “We came out a little sluggish in the first and I think that hurt us, but I think towards the middle of the second and the third, I thought we played our game and it showed.”
