BRIDGEPORT, CT. - Max Lagace recorded a 30-save shutout and Peter Cehlarik recorded his third multi-point game of the season as the Providence Bruins defeated the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, 4-0, on Tuesday night. Ryan Fitzgerald, Cameron Hughes and Robert Lantosi also scored for Providence in the team's second consecutive victory.

JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

'I thought it was probably our best game to date. I thought our start was terrific. We were on our toes, we got pucks behind them and got in on the forecheck. We capitalized early and carried on into the second. When we made our mistakes our goaltender really bailed us out. I thought overall it was a nice team win.'

MAX LAGACE - 30-SAVE SHUTOUT

'I felt good. The guys played a really solid game and made me feel comfortable so when I had to come up with a save, the confidence was there to just get it done. I thought the guys played unreal.

'The 'D' blocked a ton of shots. It was a great game and a great team effort. I'm really proud of the boys and it was great to get a big win on the road.'

PETER CEHLARIK - ONE GOAL, ONE ASSIST

'It's always good to get one early in the game, especially on the road. I think
it helps the team a lot and it felt really good putting that one in early.

'I'm just trying to take it day by day. Tomorrow's a new day and this game is in the past now. It's time to turn the page and start thinking about the next game.'
