It's been somewhat of an up and down start for the Providence Bruins, the AHL affiliate of the defending Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins, as they are off to a 4-3-1 start through eight games.
In their most recent game on Sunday, the P-Bruins were defeated by the Albany Devils, 3-2, in overtime. Zach Hamill scored the first goal for Providence at 15:35 in the first period, assisted by Jordan Caron and Carter Camper, tying the game at 1-1. Hammill scored again (his fourth goal of the season) at 13:06 in the third period, assisted by Colby Cohen and David Warsofsky.
Providence is currently tied atop the Eastern Conference Atlantic Division with nine points with the St. John's IceCaps (4-1-1), who have played two fewer games than the P-Bruins. Hammill leads the team in points with seven (four goals, three assists) and Camper has five points (one goal, four assists) through seven games. Anton Khudobin has 196 saves and 22 goals allowed for in seven games in net for Providence.
