Providence, RI – The Providence Bruins defeated the Norfolk Admirals 4-3 Saturday night at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center.  The P-Bruins got goals from Pascal Pelletier, Chris Collins, Jonathan Sigalet and T.J. Trevelyan.  The 11-1-1 P-Bruins are back at The Dunk Sunday to take on the Springfield Falcons at 4:05 p.m. 

The Admirals opened up the scoring only 3:46 into the first period.  Kyle Wanvig took a shot on net and the rebound went to Mathieu Darche.  He scored off the rebound with Craig MacDonald grabbing the second assist.  Providence tied the game at one at the 17:21 mark of the period.  Matt Lashoff worked the puck up the left board and Vladimir Sobotka tipped it into the zone, where Pelletier picked it up.  He worked the puck in front of the net, waited for Admirals goaltender Jonathan Boutin to make a move then put the puck between Boutin’s legs and into the net.  Only 29 seconds later at the 17:50 mark the P-Bruins took their first lead of the game.  David Krejci passed the puck from the right wing to Lashoff who took a shot.  Boutin made the kick save, but put the puck right on the stick of Collins who scored.  The P-Bruins went into the first intermission leading 2-1.  

In the second period, the Admirals tied the game at two at the 3:51 mark.  MacDonald scored the goal with Wanvig and Bryce Lampman getting the assists.  Norfolk went up by a goal at the 10:52 mark, while on the power play.  Wanvig picked up his third point of the night scoring the goal with MacDonald and Darche recording the assists.  Providence tied the game two minutes later.  Sobotka banged the puck off the board to Krejci.   He sent the puck to the far side of the net, where Sigalet was waiting.  Sigalet put the puck over the left shoulder of Boutin and into the net, sending the game into the second intermission tied at three.  

In the third period, the P-Bruins retook the lead at the 3:34 mark.  Adam McQuaid took a shot from the right points and Trevelyan tipped it into the net from right in front of the crease, for his sixth goal of the season.  Krejci tallied the second assist, his third assist of the game.  The P-Bruins held on for the 4-3 victory.
