It seems that November is more to Zach Hamill’s liking than October.
The Bruins 2007 first-round pick registered one assist in the season’s first month, but since the flip of the calendar he has been on fire. Last night, Hamill’s hot hand helped Providence rally from three goals down to force overtime before losing, 4-3, at home to Bridgeport.
With the point in the standings, Providence is now tied with Worcester for fourth place in the Atlantic Division.
Hamill scored his first goal of the season at 13:01 of the second period to start the comeback. Hamill now has 1-9-10 totals in November with at least one point in six of the seven games this month.
After Hamill scored, Jamie Arniel followed up with his eighth of the year just 37 seconds later. Jeff Penner then scored his first goal of the season — and his first since last March 21 — to tie the game with just 28 seconds remaining in regulation.
Providence’s two-game losing streak came to an end, but it has come a long way since its 2-5-1 start to the season.
