This Date In Providence Bruins History: November 6

1998: Putting on the much-anticipated “Turn Back the Clock” promotion, complete with Rhode Island Reds jerseys, the P-Bruins pin down the Hershey Bears, 8-6. Shawn Bates’ hat trick, along with two goals apiece via Eric Nickulas and Landon Wilson fuel the home offense as both teams ultimately resort to their backup goalies.

2010: Jamie Arniel scores his second overtime goal of the season to finalize a 5-4 win at Portland. Matt Bartkowski assists on Joe Colborne’s equalizer as well as Arniel’s clincher while goaltender Nolan Schaefer makes 36 saves and gets the secondary assist on the walkoff play. Bartkowski, Colborne, Levi Nelson and Antoine Roussel all have a two-point outing.
