Last night the Providence Bruins took to the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island to play host to the Hershey Bears and needed extra frames as the Baby B’s pulled out the victory in a 3-2 shootout win. The top minor-pro affiliate of the Boston Bruins improve their 2016-17 season record to 25-11-5-3 and are 6-3-1 in the last ten games.

Returning to the Baby B’s team last night was goaltender and 2010 sixth round pick Zane McIntyre who returned to the AHL after being up with the NHL Boston Bruins since December 30, 2016. With last night’s win, the 6′-2″ 206-pound Thief River Falls, Minnesota native continued his unbeaten 2016-17 AHL record to 11-0-0 with a 1.44 goals-against-average, and .950 save percentage. Adding to his impressive season stats is his winning streak which he extended to ten games with the win over Hershey.

After being demoted yesterday to the AHL Baby B’s, the Boston Bruins announced today that they’ve recalled the 24-year-old McIntyre and sent netminder Anton Khudobin back down to Providence.

In seven games played with the NHL B’s this season, McIntyre is 0-3-1 with a 3.95 goals-against-average, and .860 save percentage. He along with goaltender Khudobin have failed to provide any spark while giving starting netminder Tuukka Rask any rest. No matter who occupies the backup position this season it’s a disturbing fact that only one win this season came from when Rask didn’t start and that’s outright disturbing.

About Mark Allred Jr

Long-time Boston Bruins fan and former beer league goaltender for over 30-years on the ice, Inline, and Dek-Hockey throughout New England. Retired and needed a hobby so writing about the B's talent in the lower levels of developmental hockey is my favorite topic and main focus. It's important to know about tomorrow's stars today in my opinion.
