P-Bruins Gameday — Back to work in Utica

The Providence Bruins will be without injured forward Jordan Szwarz for the third straight game when they face the Utica Comets on the road tonight.

The P-Bruins beat the Comets in overtime at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center on Dec. 9 and 10. Szwarz and Kenny Agostino — with a highlight reel move — scored the game-winners.

Providence starts the night in first place in the Atlantic Division with a .690 points percentage. Utica is fourth in the North Division at .517.

The Comets will be without Reid Boucher, their top scorer with 25 points in 25 games. He is on recall with Vancouver.

Zane McIntyre will start in goal for Providence.
