Grudge rematch: Providence (2) pregame

So the aftermath of last night: Alex Khokhlachev, Anton Blidh, Jeremy Smith (all injured) and Colby Cave (suspended) out for Providence; C.J. Ludwig suspended three games for the hit on Blidh, and Loic Leduc out (probably at least a few games) after blocking that shot in the first period. Tyler Randell in for the Bruins after coming from Boston on a conditioning loan. The P-Bruins have an emergency backup, Joey Spagnoli, in tonight behind Zane McIntyre; Doug Carr is on his way up from Manchester.

The Sound Tigers get Scott Mayfield back from his three-game suspension, and Matt Carkner and Mike Halmo will give it a go after sitting out sick last night. Stephon Williams breaks Christopher Gibson’s run of nine starts in a row. One to scratch; looked like Sebastian Collberg.

The Bruins swap one defense pair for another, too.

Oh, and Dave Banfield’s here.

F: Verhaeghe-Kearns-Beck
Wright-Quine-Halmo (A)
Vaive-B.Holmstrom (C)-Florek
D: Czuczman-Mayfield
Carkner (A)-Graham
G: Williams

F: DeFazio-Czarnik-Acciari
Hargrove-Sexton (A)-Hickman
D: Cross (C)-Miller
G: McIntyre

R: D.Banfield, Tarnaris. L: Kiriakos, Redding.

This should be the box.

Bridgeport scratches (believed healthy unless noted): Ludwig (suspended), Leduc (right foot), Whitney (right leg), Rowe (lower body), Fritz, looked like Collberg.
