Tough start, and turning pages: Providence postgame

Game 76. A little bit conceivably on the line, though honestly, Toronto, Albany, take your pick: It’s a tall task one way or the other, and Portland’s win ultimately meant it was one of those two.

Game 76 of 79 or greater: Providence pregame

Eamon McAdam makes his pro debut, and a few changes on defense to go with one up front (which result in a couple of familiar or semi-familiar lines, except the one that moves Tanner Fritz to the
