December 8, 2019 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Providence Bruins News Release

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Cameron Hughes scored his third goal of the season on Sunday afternoon, but the Providence Bruins fell to the Hartford Wolf Pack, 4-1. The loss snaps an eight-game point streak and six-game win streak for the P-Bruins.

JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

"I really didn't think we had a lot of juice tonight from a lot of our players. That's probably the best team we've played. They're very structured and if you try to cheat the game on them, they make you pay.

"We didn't want to do the right thing just as much as they wanted to do the right thing and that's why we lost 4-1."

CAMERON HUGHES - ONE GOAL

"It was good to get one on the power play. Our power play needed one, so it was good to get that. Obviously we would have liked a better result, but there's things that we can build on.

"We chased a little bit today. We got behind and I don't think we had the energy we wanted throughout. We have to learn from that and be better.

"We had a good run with points in eight consecutive games. Now we have to start a new streak and we're looking forward to trying to do that on Wednesday."

STATS

- With a goal tonight, Cameron Hughes has recorded 10 points on the season (three goals, seven assists).
