The Checkers’ road woes continued as they fell by a 5-2 score to the Providence Bruins on Friday.
Justin Sourdif scored his first professional goal and Connor Bunnaman had a second for Charlotte, which has offset a fast 5-1-0 start at home with an 0-2-2 road record to start the season.
Providence took an early lead in this game through Jakub Lauko, only to see Sourdif cancel it out with a power-play strike later in the frame. The Bruins would go on to score four of the next five goals on either side of another man-advantage goal by Bunnaman that had made the score 3-2 in the second period.
The Checkers finished the game 2-for-5 on the power play, marking the second time in three games that they scored multiple power-play goals.
