Wow. Zane McIntyre had a decent game, eh? 50 saves qualifies at decent, right? What an unbelievable performance.
On the back of McInryre’s robbery the Providence Bruins complete the opening round best-of-5 series comeback, 3-2 against the Wilkes-Barre Penguins. Trailing two games to one on Friday the Baby B’s rattled off back-to-back must wins highlighted not only by McIntyre but also Jake DeBrusk and Danton Heinen. DeBrusk, basically playing himself into a lock to start next season with the Boston Bruins, grabbed two monster goals in Game 4. Meanwhile Heinen and his perfect hockey hair got the only two P-Bruin goals in Sunday’s clinching Game 5. Both Game 4 and Game 5 were played in Wilkes-Barre.
This is quite the upset for Providence. The Wilkes-Barre Penguins, favored to win the series, were the Atlantic Division champions and also had the best record in the entire AHL. But I guess anything can happen when you’ve got an all-star goalie capable of making 50 saves. This is a great moment for a lot of young Boston Bruin prospects.
The P-Bruins will face the Hershey Bears in the next round.
