P-Bruins GameDay — Czarnik up, Beleskey in

Zane McIntyre will start in goal tonight in Hartford as the Providence Bruins go for a sweep against the Wolf Pack.

Providence outplayed Hartford all night on Friday, but had to go to overtime to get a win on Austin Czarnik’s second goal of the game.

Czarnik, Providence’s best player lately, was recalled by Boston this morning. Matt Beleskey is back in the lineup after sitting out last night.

The P-Bruins peppered Alexander Georgiev with 50 shots, but the Hartford netminder did his best Dominik Hasek imitation, sprawling all over the blue paint.

Coach Jay Leach said the P-Bruins had 32 scoring chances to 10 for the Wolf Pack.

“It’s concerning to me that we only scored two goals on 32 chances. I feel like we’ve run into that a lot this year, which is starting to tell me it might be a trend: We don’t finish. I hope they’re not getting the ‘Leach finish,’” said Leach, referring to his own playing days (25 goals in 499 AHL games).

He is expecting a much better game from the Wolf Pack tonight. Hartford had won five straight going into last night.

The P-Bruins again will be without Chris Breen (lower body) and Zach Senyshyn (upper body). Senyshyn skated this morning but has not been cleared for contact.
