Providence Bruins pull off Triple OT win against Wolf Pack.


The Providence Bruins pulled off an outstanding triple overtime win over the Hartford Wolf Pack tonight. With the 2-1 win, the P-Bruins take a 2-1 lead over Hartford in their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal match-up. This only the second time the P-Bruins have taken a game to triple overtime. (The P-Bruins won the Calder Cup in 1999 with their last triple overtime win.)

This was the longest game played in the history of the Providence Bruins organization, and it lasted one hundred and two minutes.

It was a rough physical game by both sides. Matt Lindblad, Chris Casto, and David Pastrnak all left the game with injuries during tonight’s game.  At one point in the match, the Bruins were running on ten forwards and five defensemen. Chris Casto did return to the game at the beginning of the third overtime. Pastrnak’s injury had to have the Bruins front office members present for the game reaching for their antacids.

Occasional Boston call up Zach Trotman put in over forty-two minutes in tonight’s game. It’s certain the big club was impressed with his work this evening.

There is some good news to report on the Pastrnak front.

It’s a lower body injury for David Pastrnak. He’s day-to-day and hasn’t been ruled out for Game 4.

On a curious note, Boston Bruins head coach Claude Julien was at tonight’s game. This has to been seen as a positive sign for Julien staying with the organization.

Seth Griffith delayed and fired off an impressive shot to earn an unassisted goal and an important win. Griffith’s game winning goal earned him tonight’s First Star of the Game. Alexander Khokhlachev was able to tie the game in the closing seconds of the second period, and his goal earned him the Second Star of the Game. Malcolm Subban stopped forty-six out of forty-seven shots (.978 sv%) in tonight’s match. The Bruins will have a chance to finish off the Wolf Pack on Tuesday night at the Dunkin Donuts Centre in Providence.

Here’s a quick view of Griffith’s goal.
