The Worcester Sharks often practice at the New England Sports Center in Marlborough. Technically, the Providence Bruins can also call NESC home. H. Larue Renfro, the five-rink facility's longtime owner, is embarking on his second full season as principal owner of the P-Bruins.
Tonight at 7:05, the American Hockey League rivals will square off on Rink 1 at NESC in their final tuneup for the regular season. Admission is $10.
Providence, which opens the regular season a week from tonight at Manchester, fell to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, 2-0, last night in Providence. Worcester suffered a 4-2 loss in Springfield last night. The Sharks will face the Falcons in the season opener a week from tonight.
Dover's Chris Murray, a 6-2, 195-pound defenseman who played at New Hampshire, is on the Sharks' preseason roster.
For more information, call NESC at 508-229-2700.
