JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH
"I can't say we were outstanding tonight. We were very average for at least the first half of the game. I thought we got going towards the end of the second and in the third we were alright.
"It was outstanding by Seny (Zach Senyshyn) to get us back in it. I thought we did buckle down and play the right way in those last five and a half minutes. Overall, there was some good stuff and also some stuff that we're going to have to work on."
ZACH SENYSHYN - ONE GOAL
"Once we kind of got into our own flow, it was a lot better. It was a slower start for us, but we were able to find a way to win. That's a good quality for a team to have in games like that.
"You've got to win that first one to go on a streak. We've just got to keep going here and hope for the best."
- With his victory tonight, Max Lagace moved into second place in the AHL with 16 wins on the year. The first-year P-Bruin also leads the AHL with five shutouts.
- Oskar Steen opened the scoring for Providence with his fifth goal of the season. He has 12 points (5G, 7A) on the year.
- In his first game back from injury, Robert Lantosi recorded the primary assist on Steen's goal. His 25 points (10G, 15A) rank fourth on the P-Bruins.
- Josiah Didier collected the secondary assist on Steen's goal. He now has eight helpers on the season, tying a career high.
- Zach Senyshyn scored his third goal of the year at the 14:01 mark of the third period. He has collected points in two consecutive games with one goal and one assist.
The P-Bruins will remain in Providence for a rematch with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms on Friday, January 24 at Dunkin' Donuts Center. Puck drop is set for 7:05p.m. ET.
