HITTING THEIR STRIDE

HITTING THEIR STRIDE

The Providence Bruins are playing their best hockey this season with only 16 games remaining in the AHL regular season. They are now in a good place for the postseason, having won five consecutive games, seven of 10 and 11 straight at home. They currently sit fifth in the East, with 72 points. However, they are only two points away from being in third.

This success begins in net. The combination of Jeremy Smith, Malcolm Subban and Malcolm Subban has been a great team. Subban, a young prospect from the NHL, has been a focal point of attention since his disappointing NHL debut. Subban’s performance at the NHL level has not affected his AHL game. The 21-year old has a solid 2.41 goals against average and a solid save percentage of.922.

Subban is the most talked about prospect, but Smith has been the team’s best goalie all season. Smith is second in save percentage with.934 while fourth in GAA with 2.04. Smith set a single-game record for AHL goalies with 52 saves Sunday. Coach Bruce Cassidy stated that Smith is now in his stride and working hard to make the NHL roster.

Since the arrival of Seth Griffith, Alexander Khokhlachev and Colin Stewart, the team’s offensive line has been a success. Stewart is a veteran goal scorer who has scored 8 goals in 11 of his games, and 12 this year in only 33 games. Cassidy enjoys having Khokhlachev with Griffith as he lets them play their game and helps them grow as players. The results speak for themselves.

There are some negatives. Matt Lindblad, David Warsofsky and both David Warsofsky have foot injuries. They won’t be playing this weekend. Th
