This Date In Providence Bruins History: November 10

1995: After being shut out by three adversaries in as many nights the previous weekend, the P-Bruins get back on the board and back in the point column with a dramatic 3-3 home tie versus the expansion Baltimore Bandits. Tim Sweeney, facing the new AHL affiliate of his old friends in Anaheim, scores his second goal of the game for the equalizer in the final minute of regulation during a six-pack attack sequence.

1996: In his Providence debut, goaltending prospect Paxton Schafer outduels Tomas Vokoun in a 4-3 home win over the Fredericton Canadiens. With that, the P-Bruins put together their first pair of consecutive victories on the season.

2006: The P-Bruins win their sixth straight contest and extend their unbeaten streak to seven games by throttling the Norfolk Admirals, 6-3, at The Dunk.

2007: In the final installment of a 10-game road swing to start their season, the P-Bruins fall short of a two-point package in Portland, where they concede a 4-3 overtime decision. Nonetheless, their record morphs to 8-1-1 with the home opener still four nights away.
