The Providence Bruins went three-for-three this weekend and continue their march closer to the Atlantic Division’s leading Wilke-Barre/Scranton Penguins who the Baby B’s now trail by six points with 20 games remaining in the regular season. The top minor-pro affiliate of the Boston Bruins has a 33-14-5-4 record with 75 points and seem to have a stranglehold on an AHL Calder Cup Playoff appearance for the fifth straight year.


One player that continues to dominate the AHL in his second year of professional hockey is 2010 draft selection, Zane McIntyre. After a decent but troubling rookie season in the AHL Zane went 14-8-7 with a 2.68 goals-against-average and a sub .900 save percentage in 2015-16 in 31 games played to a perfect 15-0-1 record, a 1.60 GAA and .946 save% this season in 18 games of service. A huge head-turner for sure for a player that’s going to seek a contract extension this summer as he’s a restricted free agent.

In today’s win over the Springfield Thunderbirds, the 6′-2″ 206-pound Thief River Falls, Minnesota native stonewalled the Providence team to his first shutout of the season as the Baby B’s secured three goals to help out offensively. McIntyre made 25 saves as the team in front of him dominated with 42 shots on Thunderbird’s goaltender Reto Berra to continue the winning streak to four games.


The next game for the Providence team is this Friday night at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island against the Albany Devils as the team look for five straight games and their fourth consecutive home victory.
