P-Bruins’ McKelvie has a message –– honor veterans

Today is a game day, so Zach McKelvie of the Providence Bruins will follow his familiar routine: Morning skate, mid-day meal, afternoon nap, puck drop at 7:05 p.m.

But at some point on this Veterans Day, McKelvie will put hockey aside for a while and take time to reflect on the sacrifices made by United States military veterans.

McKelvie, a West Point graduate and a former Army second lieutenant, believes that more Americans should do the same thing.

“I think it should be a more important day across the country. We have two wars going on right now, and fortunately our men and women over in Iraq are coming home soon. But there’s still a long war in Afghanistan ahead of us. We need to remember our veterans and treat them right,” said McKelvie, a 26-year-old rookie defenseman.

“There’s over 4,000 families just from Iraq, and then several thousand more from Afghanistan, who mourn on days like (today). We should always remember their family member’s service to the country, and everybody else who’s been injured over there. It’s really important that we remember them (today).”

McKelvie –– as polite and thoughtful a young man as you could ever hope to meet –– makes a good point. Too many Americans treat Veterans Day as little more than an excuse for a day off from work or school, without giving nearly enough thought to the true meaning of the day.

“It’s a special day for me because I’ve got a lot of friends over in Afghanistan and Iraq right now, and my wife served over there, too,” he said.

McKelvie, who is from New Brighton, Minn., is a member of the Class of 2009 at the United States Military Academy. He spent last year stationed at Fort Benning, Ga.

P-Bruins Get the Win In Shootout Over Monarchs

The Providence Bruins defeated the Manchester Monarchs 2-1 in a shootout thriller tonight at the Dunkin' Donuts Center. Trent Whitfield scored the P-Bruins' lone goal in regulation as well as the shootout winner en route to earning first star honors. Jamie Arniel also scored in the shootout as the P-Bruins snapped an eight-game winless streak.

Much like the play in the first five of 10 regular season games, the Providence Bruins and Manchester Monarchs traded scoring opportunities and glass-rattling hits throughout the first period. The P-Bruins' best opportunities came in the last five minutes of the period when an acrobatic kick save by Michael Hutchinson gave the needed club momentum. Fueled by the stick skills of Zach Hamill, Carter Camper and Max Sauvé, the club's shots on net were stalwarted by heavy traffic in front of Martin Jones. The Monarchs took a 1-0 lead with just five seconds to play. Caught on a bad change, the P-Bruins defense couldn't recover and Brandon Kozun's shot snuck behind Hutchinson for his seventh goal of the season and gave the Monarchs a 1-0 lead going into the first intermission.


Rest here

There were opportunities for both teams on the power play. Currently no word on Sauve's status.

The Providence Bruins split this weekend's Home-and-Home series with the Connecticut Whale.

The Whale struck first...

The Providence Bruins fell to the Connecticut Whale 3-0 Saturday evening at the XL Center. The P-Bruins are back at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center Sunday for Stadium Cup Day at 4:05 p.m. against the Whale.

After a scoreless first two periods, the Whale got on the board at the 5:08 mark of the third period. Chris McKelvie tallied his second goal of the season, while Wade Redden recorded the lone assist. Connecticut made it 2-0 at the 10:29 mark. Stu Bickel netted his first goal of the season, while Tim Erixon and Andre Deveaux picked up the assists. The Whale finished off the scoring with an empty net goal at the 18:11 mark. Francois Bouchard scored his second goal of the season, while Aaron Voros and Cameron Talbot had the assists. The Whale went onto the 3-0 victory.


But back at The Dunk...

The Providence Bruins defeated the Connecticut Whale 3-2 this evening at the Dunkin' Donuts Center. The rookies shined for the P-Bruins as Kyle MacKinnon, Carter Camper and Craig Cunningham each netted a goal in the win.

Looking for vengeance on the 3-0 loss the night before, the P-Bruins turned the tables on the Whale early in the first period. All facets of the P-Bruins game was on, from diving saves from the likes of David Warsofsky, to a relentless fore check from the offense. The hard work paid off for Providence at 3:49 of the first period when Cam Talbot couldn't control the initial shot from Cunningham, allowing MacKinnon to stuff home the rebound for his second goal of the year. Calle Ridderwall also assisted on the play. The Whale's frustrations came to a boil at 5:32 when Lane MacDermid dropped the gloves with Aaron Voros in a drawn out battle, of which MacDermid prevailed with a few solid uppercuts. That fight triggered a plethora of emotion among both teams and the score sheet was filled with 72 total penalty minutes for the period, including two misconducts and one game misconduct for Connecticut. Providence's power play capitalized on one man-advantage opportunity at 11:59. Jamie Tardif found Josh Hennessy below the goal line and the veteran forward fed Camper in the slot who beat Talbot blocker side high with a one-timer. Providence kept the Whale off the board for the remainder of the frame and went into the first intermission leading by two.

AHL affiliate for Boston Bruins struggling mightily this season

After a disappointing 2010-11 season, the Providence Bruins made several changes, they fired their head coach and promoted his assistant Butch Cassidy, they brought in several proven AHL veterans to help improve the on-ice product and provide Boston's prospects with more talent to play with, and they added a few more talented rookies to the mix. However, the changes have not resulted in a better product, as Providence sits in 14th place in the Eastern Conference standing. Prospects who showed promise by standing out in training camp against NHL talent are struggling to produce in the minors. Another coaching change may be in order this summer, but for now, the Bruins have to look within to right the ship.


AHL

Jamie Arniel, C/RW, 22

Jamie Arniel is a great example of what's going wrong in Providence. Last year, Arniel scored 23 goals and 52 points, this year he has two goals and eight points through 41 games. This is a young, tough, energetic forward who's well schooled in the game. He plays a hard and determined game yet his offensive growth is going in reverse.

Yeah.

I wish they'd send Joe Corvo back. I'm sick of seeing the stupid decisions he's making, not to mention that he stands around way too much. He still needs some work in the minors in my opinion.

I'm really wondering if there's something going on with him. Putting too much pressure on himself, something else mentally, or even physically no one's talking about, or that he hasn't mentioned to the staff. Anyway, have to wait and see where he goes.

P-Bruins defeat Worcester Sharks 3-2

The Providence Bruins defeated the Worcester Sharks 3-2 this evening at the Dunkin' Donuts Center. The P-Bruins had goals from Andrew Bodnarchuk, Yannick Riendeau and Craig Cunningham.

The P-Bruins and Sharks set the tone of the first of a home-and-home series early in the first period. Both clubs dished out big hits and scoring opportunities in the opening minutes. However, solid play from Anton Khudobin kept the Sharks off the board. Providence was able to read Worcester's break out and stalwarted any of their offensive opportunities and the Sharks' frustrations came to a boil at 14:43 giving the P-Bruins the man-advantage. Providence didn't waste the opportunity as they quickly began drilling Worcester goalie Antero Niittymaki with shots. Their work paid off just before the penalty expired when Matt Bartkowski's shot from the point rebounded off the endboard and Bodnarchuk tucked it past Niittymaki at 16:22. The P-Bruins went into the first intermission leading 1-0.

Another careless penalty early in the second period cost Worcester another goal. Bodnarchuk, Cunninham and Riendeau came into the Worcester zone on a 3-on-2. Trying to find Cunningham, Bodnarchuk's pass was deflected to Riendeau who roofed a wrist shot past Niittymaki at 2:53 for his third goal in two games. Worcester battled back, getting a couple of quality scoring opportunities, but Khudobin was solid between the pipes. Frustrations came to a boil at 10:56 when Lane MacDermid dropped the mitts and Tyler Doherty in a heated, but quick decision along the halfwall. Worcester got lucky at 14:15 when a shot from the point was deflected over Khudobin's glove. Ryan Del Monte was credited with the goal. Immediately after the following faceoff, new addition to the P-Bruins, Bobby Robins, continued to show that he isn't afraid to drop the gloves as he squared off with Matt Pelech. Strong play from Providence's defense and Khudobin kept the Sharks off the board and the P-Bruins went into the second intermission leading 2-1.


The Baby B's play The Sharks again tonight in Worcester, then come back to "The Dunk" for an afternoon game against the Springfield Falcons.

Providence Continues Point Streak

After the Friday's win at home, the P-Bruins traveled to Worcester for their second game against the Sharks....

The Providence Bruins extended their point streak to three games after falling to the Worcester Sharks 3-2 in overtime Saturday evening at the DCU Center. The P-Bruins got their goals from Bobby Robins and Josh Hennessy. The P-Bruins return to the Dunkin’ Donuts Center Sunday at 4:05 p.m. against the Springfield Falcons for Stadium Cup Day.


Saturday's game Summary

They continued the strong play from Saturday's game into today's game against the Springfield Falcons..

Providence, RI - The Providence Bruins extended their point streak to four games as they defeated the Springfield Falcons 4-3 this evening at the Dunkin' Donuts Center. The P-Bruins had goals from Carter Camper, Jordan Caron and two goals from Jamie Arniel.

Both sitting at the bottom of their respective divisions, the Providence Bruins and Springfield Falcons came out of the locker rooms eager to gain much needed points. However, the P-Bruins, coming off a three-point streak, struck first at 6:28. Arniel, who has struggled to match his career best numbers from last season, was fed a pass from Camper below the Falcons' goal line. Coming out of the corner, Arniel dangled Springfield's flat-footed defense and beat Manny Legace low on his blocker side for his third goal of the season. The P-Bruins continued to ride the momentum of Arniel's goal, pummeling Legace with shots. The momentum paid off at 14:18 when Camper split the two Springfield defenders and went in 1-on-1, easily beating Legace five-hole for an unassisted goal. Solid play between the pipes from Anton Khudobin kept the Falcons off the board and sent the P-Bruins into the locker room leading 2-0.


Rest of Game Summary

Carter Camper will represent the Providence Bruins in the AHL's All-Star Classic held in Atlantic City, NJ next weekend. Next game is against the Springfield Falcons on Feb 3rd.

P-BRUINS DEFEAT PIRATES 6-3

he Providence Bruins defeated the Portland Pirates 6-3 this evening at the Dunkin' Donuts Center. The P-Bruins received goals from Trent Whitfield, Zach Hamill, Calle Ridderwall, Matt Bartkowski and two from Kyle MacKinnon.

After an eventless first ten minutes of the opening period, Bobby Robins got the crowd and players on their feet when he dropped the mitts and Mathieu Brodeur in a drawn out center ice battle. Robins was assessed with a boarding call in addition to his five minute fighting major and high sticking call 20 seconds later gave the Pirates a two-man advantage. Portland capitalized on the power play as Marc-Antoine Pouliot's shot from the low circle found its way past Anton Khudobin to give the Pirates a 1-0 lead at 15:44. The lead would be short lived as MacKinnon collected the puck in the neutral zone and beat the Pirates' defenders and with a smooth toe-drag and goaltender Justin Pogge with a snap shot top shelf at 16:44. Less than a minute later, MacKinnon struck again, tallying his second goal of the night and seventh of the season. Kirk MacDonald thwarted the Pirates breakout attempt at the blue line and fed MacKinnon breaking into the zone, allowing him to beat Pogge with a wrist shot from the high slot. The goal sent the P-Bruins into the first intermission leading 2-0.

The physical play from the first carried over to the second period. An early Providence boarding penalty allowed Pouliot and Portland to tally a second power play goal at 2:55 to even the score 2-2. Despite losing the lead, Providence continued to pressure Portland in all zones. The Pirates' defense finally caved to the P-Bruins hard forecheck at 16:08 when the line of Lane MacDermid, Whitfield and Robins caused a turnover deep in the Pirates zone. Robins collected the puck in the corner and fed Whitfield in the slot for a one timer, giving the P-Bruins a 3-2 lead at 16:08. Following the theme from the first period, it seems all good things come in pairs. Ridderwall found the P-Bruins' leading scorer, Carter Camper, in the neutral zone, who then fed Hamill trailing in the Pirates zone with a back pass. Hamill moved the puck across the high slot with a toe drag and ripped a snap shot past Pogge in the far corner to take a 4-2 lead going into the final frame.

P-Bruins Blank Hersey Bears 6-0 Friday Night

Tardif and Cunningham Tally Two Goals Each

Providence, RI - The Providence Bruins blanked the Hershey Bears 6-0 this evening at the Dunkin' Donuts Center. Kevan Miller, Colby Cohen each tallied a goal and Jamie Tardif and Craig Cunningham each scored twice.

After pummeling P-Bruins' netminder Michael Hutchinson with shots and controlling much of the play in the opening minutes of the first period, Providence shifted gears and took control of the game and at the end of the first frame, Providence had doubled Hershey's shots on net. The Bears were assessed with two penalties halfway through the frame. Providence set up for nice scoring opportunities, but Hershey's penalty kill, ranked fourth in the league, was solid and killed both man-advantages. The P-Bruins continued to out hustle the Bears in all zones, creating multiple odd-man rushes, but former P-Bruin Dany Sabourin was flawless between the pipes and the teams went into the first intermission scoreless.

Providence finally broke down Sabourin in the opening minutes of the second period. Cohen fed Tardif along the far boards and Tardif snuck a shot past Sabourin five-hole at 3:02. Two minutes later, Tardif caused a turnover in the neutral zone allowing Miller to collect the lose puck at the blue line. Miller's shot from just outside the blue line seemed to surprise Sabourin and easily went in to give the P-Bruins a 2-0 lead. Providence continued to control all facets of play, beating Hershey to the puck, reading plays and throwing big hits. Their hard work paid off at 14:48 when Tardif struck again, this time on a wrap around, for his second goal and third point of the night. Kirk MacDonald and Kyle MacKinnon assisted on the play to take a 3-0 lead and send Sabourin to the locker room early.

P-Bruins defeat The Whale 4-3

The Providence Bruins defeated the Connecticut Whale 4-3 this evening at the Dunkin' Donuts Center. Jamie Arniel tallied a goal and Carter Camper added three, recording his first professional career hat trick.

Looking to bounce back from last night's disappointing loss in Springfield, the P-Bruins controlled the tempo of the game from the opening faceoff. Their hard forecheck paid off at 5:47 when Calle Ridderwall caused a turnover low in the Connecticut zone allowing Zach Hamill to feed Camper from behind the net. Camper, all alone in front, easily snuck a one-timer past Cameron Talbot's glove sideto take a 1-0 lead. However, the lead wouldn't last long as the Whale answered just over a minute later with a tally from Andre Deveaux to tie the game at one. The teams exchanged opportunities throughout the remainder of the frame, but both goalies were solid between the pipes and went into the first intermission tied 1-1.

Providence continued to crash Connecticut's net in the second frame. It didn't take long for their efforts to pay off as Camper added his second of the night at 2:36 to give the P-Bruins a 2-1 lead. Hamill and Ridderwall collected their second assists of the night on the go-ahead goal. Three minutes later, Arniel made it 3-1 when his quick wrist shot from the right circle beat Talbot right under the cross bar. Craig Cunningham and Max Sauvé assisted on the play. Play started to get chippy as the minutes ticked off the clock, but Providence's penalty kill, ranked 8th in the league, was flawless until 17:17 when the Whale was finally able to crack the P-Bruins' penalty kill unit, cutting the deficit to one heading into the final frame.
