Bruins Daily P-Bruins Player of the Week 12/4/12-12/10/12
The Providence Bruins are on quite a roll as of late winning four in a row finding themselves one point out of first place in the Atlantic Division (12-8-1).
Baby B’s fans are used to hearing names such as Chris Bourque, Ryan Spooner, Jordan Caron, but on this mini-win streak it has been a few role players stepping up and one that made a big stride was Kyle MacKinnon who racked up three goals including a game-winning goal versus the Adirondack Phantoms. MacKinnon also added two goals versus the Manchester Monarchs. Both goals came when the Baby B’s were trailing in the game versus the Monarchs.
MacKinnon has three goals and three assists on the year and now sports a plus two while on the ice and is making a case as of late for more ice time.
In 2011 for the Baby B’s MacKinnon scored 14 goals and added seven assists in 67 games played. He is on pace for a similar stat line for this season, but he could eclipse that if the points keep coming in bunches.
The Providence Bruins now have 26 points only trailing the Worcester Sharks who have 27 points and with the way the team is coming together right now, the Baby B’s could find themselves in first place by the end of next weekend.
As Head Coach Bruce Cassidy always says, “Our goal is to get four points out of six each weekend.” The Baby B’s are striving for more than that lately.
