A four-goal eruption in the second period propelled Providence to a 6-2 victory over Worcester on Sunday afternoon and a sweep of the teams’ weekend home-and-home series.
The game marked the sixth consecutive year in which the Bruins hosted a contest on Super Bowl Sunday afternoon. Providence is 5-1-0-0 in those games, including three straight wins over the Sharks.
With the game tied at 2-2, John Lammers (6:03), Jordan Knackstedt (6:47), Drew Larman (7:01) and Mikko Lehtonen (8:13) scored in a span of two minutes, 10 seconds to send the Bruins to their first win in four tries on home ice against Worcester this season.
Lehtonen (pictured) finished the day with a goal and two assists, and now has nine points (5-4-9) in his last five games. Andy Wozniewski and Matt Marquardt also scored for the Bruins and Kevin Regan made 27 saves for his first home win since Feb. 22, 2009.
