by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

SYRACUSE, N.Y. - There are generally few positives that can be gained from being eliminated from the postseason. Such is not the case, however, for this year's Providence Bruins, whose season came to an end Saturday night at the hands of the Syracuse Crunch in Game 5 of the AHL's Eastern Conference Finals.

Not only did the P-Bruins overcome series deficits in each of their first two series to reach the East Finals for the first time since 2009, but also went on a run that allowed a large chunk of the roster to gain an invaluable amount of experience.

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Kevin Dean was conflicted following Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals Wednesday night. On the one hand, his Providence Bruins stormed back in the third period, twice pulling within a goal of the Syracuse Crunch and drumming up thoughts of another thrilling comeback - which has become a calling card of his team this postseason.

But on the other - more important - hand, the P-Bruins once again found themselves digging out of what proved to be an insurmountable hole.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - For the last three-plus seasons, Zach Senyshyn has had little trouble showing off his impressive goal-scoring prowess. In 195 games for the OHL's Soo Greyhounds, the 2015 first-round pick tallied 114 goals.

Senyshyn joined Alex DeBrincat as the only OHLers to register back-to-back 40-goal campaigns over the last two seasons, and his 87 goals during that stretch trailed only DeBrincat's 116.
