CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Brendan Woods scored two goals, including the game-winner, against his former team and Max Lagace made 28 saves as the Providence Bruins
defeated the Charlotte Checkers, 4-1, on Saturday night. The victory marks the third consecutive win for Providence, which ties for the longest win streak so far this season.
1st 2nd 3rd Final
PROVIDENCE 1 1 2 4
CHARLOTTE 1 0 0 1
JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH
"For the most part, I thought we had good structure on our breakouts. We were able to get in on the forecheck from time to time and didn't give them much through the middle of the ice.
"We got a couple of timely goals and they were pushing hard in the third. We were able to capitalize on some odd-man rushes when they were up the ice and usually that's the way a road win works. We were fortunate to get it tonight."
BRENDAN WOODS - TWO GOALS
"It obviously feels good to put two in against your former team. I have to give credit to my linemates. They're finding me in tight situations and things are going in, so hopefully it stays that way.
"I feel good. I really have to credit my trainers and strength coach. They were right there making sure my conditioning stayed up to par, so it really didn't feel like I missed too much time when I cam back. Things are going my way right now and hopefully we can keep that momentum going and keep this streak going for the team."
- Trent Frederic recorded an assist on Woods's first goal of the night and has now recorded a point in five consecutive games.
- Max Lagace made 28 saves for Providence, collecting his 10th win of the season. His 10 wins are tied for the most among AHL goaltenders.
- With two goals tonight, Brendan Woods has recorded points in four consecutive games. He has four goals and two assists for six points during that span.
- Samuel Asselin recorded an assist for the third consecutive game. Oskar Steen also added an assist and has points in three straight (1G, 2A).
- Joona Koppanen collected an assist tonight and has five points (2G, 3A) in his last four games.
- The Bruins will remain in Charlotte, North Carolina and take on the Charlotte Checkers on Sunday, December 1 at Bojangles' Coliseum. Puck drop is set for 1 p.m. ET.
