P-Bruins Gameday — Shooting for seven wins in a row

PROVIDENCE — In their final home game of the 2017 calendar year, the Providence Bruins face the Utica Comets this afternoon.

Zane McIntyre starts in goal for the P-Bruins.

On Saturday night at The Dunk, Providence beat the Comets in overtime, 3-2, for their sixth win in a row.

Jordan Szwarz won it with a power-play goal at 3:16 of the extra session after Connor Clifton tied the game with a shorthanded goal with 3:27 left in regulation. It was Clifton’s first goal as a pro.

The P-Bruins start the day in first place in the Atlantic Division, second in the Eastern Conference and third overall in the AHL.
