This Date In Providence Bruins History: October 19

1996: After winning only one out of four games in a season-opening homestand, the P-Bruins begin their road slate on a winning note with a 4-2 victory at Portland.

2001: A 3-1 home win over Hartford nudges the P-Bruins back over the .500 mark at 3-2-0.

2002: Rich Brennan, Lee Goren and Matt Herr all etch two points apiece as part of a 3-2 home win over Lowell. Brennan assists on both of Goren’s first-period goals before Herr scores the eventual winner, his fourth game-clinching strike in the first month of the season.

2008: Johnny Boychuk extends his season-long point-getting streak to five games and has his third multi-point game in as many days. Likewise, the P-Bruins extend their point-getting streak to five games (4-0-1) by battering the Portland Pirates, 4-1, at the Cumberland County Civic Center.
