There was some good news and some bad news for the Providence Bruins this week.
The good news was that P-Bruins center Trent Whitfield was named the Reebok/AHL Player of the Month for March. Whitfield posted an impressive 22 points (12 goals, 10 assists) during the month, and had points in 10 consecutive games. He will receive an award for this achievements prior to an upcoming home game in Providence.
The bad news? Whitfield won't be able to take his hot scoring streak into the playoffs because the P-Bruins did not make the postseason for the second straight year.
Adam Kaufman sat down with Providence captain Jeremy Reich to discuss what went wrong during the 2010-2011 season as well as the team's plan for the six remaining regular season games.
The P-Bruins' captain said that his team battled with inconsistency throughout the season and that was ultimately their downfall.
"In this league it's about being consistent," he said. "You can't go on a long losing streak at times because it will end up hurting you."
As far as the plans for the rest of the season, Reich said that the team wants to play spoiler to the competition.
"We just want to go out and win every game we can,” he said. "We have to make sure we're playing other teams tough."
