PROVIDENCE — Zach Senyshyn, who has gone 13 straight without a goal, will be a scratch this afternoon when the Providence Bruins host the Springfield Thunderbirds. Leading scorer Austin Czarnik, held out as a precaution scratch last night, will return to the lineup.
Zane McIntyre, who was very sharp in blanking the Penguins, 1-0, on Friday, will start in goal.
After a win at home against Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and a loss on the road versus Bridgeport, the P-Bruins are looking to finish off the weekend with a win. They beat Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Friday night, then lost in Bridgeport last night.
After winning five in a row — including a 5-2 victory last Sunday at The Dunk — the T-Birds blew a 3-0 lead against Binghamton on Friday. They did not play last night.
Binnington is the backup.
SCRATCHES: Senyshyn, Clifton, Hickman, Payerl, Acolatse, Hargrove
