The Portland Pirates are sitting third in the Atlantic Division with a 3-3-1-0 record after going 2-2-0-0 last week.
The Pirates opened the week on an off note, losing to the St. John's IceCaps 8-7 in overtime despite Rob Klinkhammer's hat trick and two assists. The Pirates gave up the lead to the IceCaps four separate times during the game.
They rebounded the next night and shutout the Pirates 4-0. Captain Alexandre Bolduc scored twice to give him four straight games with a goal in the win.
Bolduc helped turn it into a two game win streak as they Pirates defeated the Binghamton Senators 4-2 on Saturday night. Bolduc score his 6th goal of the season in the game as he tipped one in just past Senator goalie Robin Lehner.
However, the streak came to an end on Sunday. The Pirates fell down three goals to none in the first period against the Springfield Falcons and could never quite get back into it, losing 3-2.
The Pirates have a little bit of a break after playing four games in six days. Portland's next game is against the IceCaps at home on Friday, Nov. 2. They then have a week off before playing five games in eight days.
