Bobby Robins, Niklas Svedberg lead Providence Bruins over St. John's IceCaps 3-0

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Bobby Robins had a goal and an assist and Niklas Svedberg made 18 saves Sunday as the Providence Bruins shut out the St. John's IceCaps 3-0 in the American Hockey League.

Carter Camper and Lane MacDermid had the other goals for the Bruins (3-5-0).

Eddie Pasquale made 35 saves for the IceCaps (5-6-0) in taking the loss.

Robins opened the scoring just 22 seconds into the game after Christian Hanson wired a shot from inside the blue-line that struck Pasquale in the mask. The rebound caromed to an open Robins, who buried his first of the season.

Providence made it 2-0 on a two-man advantage late in the second period. Ryan Spooner took a pass from Chris Bourque and sent a perfect feed cross-crease feed to Camper.

The Bruins added an insurance goal 5:40 into the third when MacDermid pounced on a loose puck and fired a shot past Pasquale.

I've been so fortunate, blessed, to play a long time with some great players and be on power plays, play in some great cities and stuff. It's been fun.
