Cunningham’s Providence Bruins onto Round 2

Craig Cunningham and the Providence Bruins advanced to the second round of the American Hockey League’s Calder Cup Playoffs

Warfield native Craig Cunningham and the seventh-seed Providence Bruins advanced to the second round of the American Hockey League’s Calder Cup Playoffs after defeating the Springfield Falcons in the final game of their best-of-five quarter-final series.

Cunningham scored a goal and added an assist in Game 4 to tie the series in a 6-3 Bruins’ victory over the second-seeded Falcons. In a wild Game 5 on Saturday, the P-Bruins came back from a 3-1 deficit in the first period to skate to a 6-3 victory to win the Eastern Conference quarter-final series.

The Bruins now take on the sixth seed Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins in a best-of-seven series starting on Friday in Scranton.

The 23-year-old Cunningham posted the best numbers of his Bruin career in 2014, scoring 25 goals and adding 22 assists for 47 points while playing in 75 games for the AHL club, and suiting up for two matches for the NHL Boston Bruins.
