P-Bruins sweep through weekend games

Jordan Caron, Providence Bruins, Boston Bruins, AHL, NHL

(Joe Makarski/Bruins Daily) Jordan Caron’s hat trick on Friday helped the Providence Bruins pick up their first win of the season.

After dropping their first two contests of the 2012-13 American Hockey League season, the Providence Bruins bounced back nicely this past weekend where they won both road games, and climbed back to .500 on the year.

On Friday night the Bruins got revenge for their home opening loss when they went into Manchester and took down the Monarchs 4-3. After failing to score on any of their first 11 power plays of the year, the Bruins scored three times in four chances helping them cruise to victory. The key to Friday night’s victory was without a doubt the play of Jordan Caron who netted himself a hat trick.

Ryan Spooner got the Bruins on the board first on Friday when he notched his first goal of the season.

On Saturday, the Bruins traveled to down to Springfield to take on the Falcons, and walked away from that one with a hard earned 3-1 victory.

Craig Cunningham and Maxime Sauve both picked up their second goals of the year, and defensemen Garnet Exelby picked up his first in the win. Spooner picked up an assist in the win, his fourth point—1-3-4— in as many games.

Jared Knight missed both weekend games as he rested a pulled leg muscle that he injured during practice last week.

Niklas Svedberg made his AHL debut in goal on Friday and picked up his first win of the year. Coach Bruce Cassidy turned to Svedberg once again Saturday and it certainly worked out well for the “Baby B’s.” Svedberg made 63 saves on 67 shots in both games.

The Bruins return home to The Dunk Friday night where they host the Springfield Falcons. Then on Saturday they head to Connecticut to take on Chris Kreider and the Connecticut Whale.
