Seven different Bruins scored goals and Malcolm Subban made 33 saves in the win and improved to 4-0-0 vs. Worcester this season. 
 
The Bruins scored three quick goals in the first 5:46 of the 1st period to charge out to a 3-0 lead. Nick Johnson (14th) got things rolling at 2:33 after he banked a shot off a skate in the crease as a Sharks penalty came to an end to put Providence ahead 1-0. Carter Camper (8th) fired home a rebound at 4:45 and Anthony Camara (5th) finished off a nice 3-on-2 rush at 5:46 past Harri Sateri to put Worcester down 3-0. Head Coach Roy Sommer would then use his timeout to settle things down as there was no more scoring the rest of the period. Worcester did outshot Providence 11-9.
 
Providence came out charging again in the middle frame and Craig Cunningham (13th) tapped in a centering feed past Harri Sateri at 6:34 to put the Bruins on top 4-0. Worcester finally broke through at 16:10 as Dylan Demelo (1st) scored his 1st professional goal with a terrific shot from the high left slot over the shoulder of Malcolm Subban on a Worcester 5-on-3 power play. The Bruins got the score right back as defenseman Ben Youds (2nd) snapped a shot from the right circle at 18:58. Worcester was outshot 17-12 in the second period and trailed 5-1 after 40 minutes.
 
The Bruins outscored the Sharks 3-1 in the third period with a pair of power play goals from Anthony Camara (6th) and Rob Flick (1st) along with a score from the point by Ben Youds (2nd).
Travis Oleksuk (4th) scored the final goal of the game at 16:30 with a shot off the post and past Subban from 47 feet. Providence outshot Worcester 13-12 in the third period as the Sharks tied a franchise record for most goals allowed in a hockey game.
