It apparently didn't take James Livingston long to get comfortable with the Manchester Monarchs.

He made his debut with the team in a win over Adirondack on Friday night at Verizon Wireless Arena.

On Saturday, Livingston scored a pair of goals to lead the home team to a 4-2 win over Providence in a matinee performance back at the arena.

Livingston, who joined the Los Angeles Kings organization from the San Jose Sharks earlier in the week, scored four goals in 53 games with Worcester this season.

The Monarchs are back it this afternoon with another home game, this one against Hartford.

Manchester improved to 38-16-8 with Saturday's win and continues to lead the American Hockey League in points.

The Monarchs spotted the Bruins a 1-0 lead in the first period and quickly mounted their comeback in the second. They outshot Providence 19-9 in the period and outscored the Bruins 3-0.

Rookie Nick Shore scored his second goal in as many games to tie it 3:18 into the second period. Andy Andreoff made it 2-1 at 5:58.

Livingston scored his first goal with 5:14 left in the period for a 3-1 advantage.

He answered a Providence goal with his second with 2:48 left in the game to close out the scoring.

J.F. Berube made 34 saves for the win.
