This Date In Providence Bruins History: November 16

2003: Future Boston blueliner Dennis Seidenberg sets up the only goal for the Philadelphia Phantoms, who squeak past the P-Bruins, 1-0, at the Spectrum.

2007: A 5-2 home win over Worcester is marred by goaltender Jordan Sigalet’s health scare in the crease. The third-year member of the Bruins organization collapses midway through the third period with an attack related to his multiple sclerosis. He would not see game action again until another date with the Sharks on Jan. 11 of the same season.

2008: Vladimir Sobotka, Martins Karsums and Johnny Boychuk each score a goal and at least one assist before Brad Marchand inserts the game-winner with 5:53 to go in a 4-3, seesaw win over the Norfolk Admirals.
