P-Bruins top line is rolling


Long after his teammates left the ice, Jacob Forsbacka Karlsson is still at work on Tuesday.

Assistant coach Trent Whitfield on Providence’s top line of Agostino-Forsbacka Karlsson-Cehlarik:

“They read off each other well. They dump pucks when they have to dump it and they go get it. They forecheck hard, they reload. Most of their goals have come off forecheck and reload, quick on the puck and attacking again.

“It’s fun to watch and it good for our young kids to watch how to do it the right way. Yeah, some of their moves are highlight reel moves and that’s all well and good. But it’s how they got the puck back before that that’s impressive to me.

“Kenny obviously drives that ship. For JFK, it’s a great learning tool for him to see how hard (Agostino) works and how hard he is on pucks. Peter Cehlarik, coming off an injury, to come out of the gates the way he has, it’s phenomenal. Good on him. He put in the work. He’s on a mission to get back to the NHL. If he keeps playing like this, I don’t think he’s too far away.”
