The Providence Bruins lost Game 5 of their AHL playoff series to the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Penguins, 4-0, and took out their frustrations by instigating a pair of third-period brawls.
The first began with a pileup in front of the Penguins' goal, and Providence's Graham Mink, who was ejected, fell on top of Penguins goalie Brad Theissen and began pummeling him when he was down on the ice. (The incident begins at 6:50 of the video above)
The second came after Providence goalie Niklas Svedberg took down Paul Thompson with a slash to the back of the leg after a late goal. (Begins at 8:07 mark of video)
The P-Bruins lead the series 3-2 with Game 6 Monday in Providence.
