Clean start: Providence postgame

Things sometimes don’t look quite right in first games. And looking back to last year’s, you could probably reiterate that first paragraph. Actually, most of the second paragraph, too. “I think

Start strong, finish however: Providence pregame

The whole “get off to a good start” thing only means so much in a long season. The first five times the Sound Tigers missed the playoffs, they won the first game of the season. (The past two, 2013-14
