Bruins 3, Monarchs 2: 6 Notable Numbers from Providence’s Friday Victory

December 7th, 2012 by Al Daniel Leave a reply »
The steadily snowballing goal-scorers club of 2012-13 piloted the Providence Bruins out of the Atlantic Division basement Friday night with a 3-2 win over the Manchester Monarchs before 6,313 rooters at the Dunkin' Donuts Center.

Second-year pro Kyle MacKinnon retorted each time Manchester’s Bryan Rodney cracked open a visitors’ lead before rookie blueliner Torey Krug nailed the go-ahead goal and decider with 13:58 to spare in the third period.

Both Providence strikers hatched the goose-egg in their respective goal columns in the process. MacKinnon is one of 13 Bruins with multiple firsthand tallies on the year.

With the win, the P-Bruins are now in a virtual tie for fourth place with the Portland Pirates and trail both the Monarchs and St. John’s IceCaps by a single point for second. They can lasso the top-seeded Worcester Sharks with a regulation win Saturday at the DCU Center.

Here is a deeper look at how they have set up that opportunity with a sample of key stats from Friday’s action.
