After a satisfying 1-0 win over first-place Wilkes-Barre/Scranton last night, the Providence Bruins play at Bridgeport tonight.
“I like the way we kept coming. Bit of a slow first five minutes but once we got our legs going it was good. Playing (against) an older group, the kids responded,” coach Jay Leach said after Friday’s game.
Austin Czarnik won’t play tonight. It’s precautionary, Leach says, and he’s expected to be back on Sunday.
Wearing a full shield, Matt Beleskey will return tonight after missing three games with a broken orbital bone
Jordan Binnington will start in goal.
Providence is 1-3-0-1 against the Sound Tigers.
McIntyre is the backup.
Czarnik, Hennessey, Lauzon, Porter, Blidh, Johansson
Providence hosts Springfield on Sunday at 3.
