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.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
