Providence Bruins drop pair to Bridgeport SoundTigers

The Calder Cup playoff race remains tight and the Providence Bruins aren’t doing themselves any favors.

The P-Bruins, sitting third in the Atlantic Division with 58 points, dropped an important two-game set to Bridgeport this past weekend. They now sit a mere one point ahead of the fourth-place Charlotte Checkers and the fifth-place Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins for the final two divisional playoff spots.

The P-Bruins put themselves in a big hole early, spotting Bridgeport with a 3-0 lead in the first game of the home and home. Colin McDonald netted his second of the year from Mason Jobst just 3:23 into the contest.
