Last night was the last game of the season for a playoffs-eliminated Providence Bruins team. Watered down by the callups of Jeff Penner and Adam McQuaid, along with Andrew Bodnarchuk and Zach Hamill, Providence struggled to maintain an offensive presence and was outplayed by a more skilled Lowell squad.
Although this was a disappointing end to the P-Bruins’ season, the future looks bright, and next season promises to be a good one – a team stacked with talent on both the front and back ends. The only questionable factor is the goaltending; although Dany Sabourin has expressed interest in staying, it seems unlikely that he will be re-signed, and Kevin Regan’s injuries make his return a huge question. Will Providence go young, tapping into the talent of Michael Hutchinson and Matt Dalton? Or will they sign an experienced goaltender from elsewhere?
Only time will tell. For now, some highlights from last night’s game:
