Staring at a new franchise record, the Albany Devils went for six straight wins Saturday night at the Times Union Center. Sadly, the Providence Bruins didn’t co-operate.

Tied at one goal apiece after the third period, neither team could crack the opposing goalie in overtime and off to a shootout the game went. The Bruins outscored the Devils in the shootout 3-2 and won the game 2-1, halting the Devils win streak at five.

Unlike a few of the wins in the record tying streak this time the Devils offense was slowed by Providence netminder Jim Hutchinson. Hutchinson stopped 27 shots in regulation. The only goal he allowed was a second period tally by the red hot Bobby Butler who scored a goal for the sixth straight game, the fourth longest streak of consecutive games with a goal in franchise history.

The Devils changed up goalies for the game, sitting Keith Kinkade in favor of Jeff Frazee. The only goal he allowed in regulation came in period number one. He stopped 27 scoring chances from Providence.

Wednesday night, Albany looks to start a new win streak when they travel to Bridgeport to take on the Sound Tigers. Face off is at 7:00 p.m. and can heard on 104.5 The Team ESPN Radio.
