This Date In Providence Bruins History: November 22

1996: Rob Tallas’ 45 saves bolster a 4-2 home win over the Adirondack Red Wings.

1997: A four-goal third period amounts to a come-from-behind, 5-3 win over the Beast of New Haven and snaps the P-Bruins six-game winless streak.

2002: Pat Leahy and Martin Samuelsson both connect to snap a team power-play scoring drought as part of a 3-2 win over Springfield at The Dunk.

2003: After a 2-0 advantage devolves into a 3-2 deficit, defenseman Peter Metcalf gives the P-Bruins a point with a power-play equalizer at 15:56 of the third period, finalizing a 3-3 tie at the Hartford Civic Center.

2009: The P-Bruins trail the Manchester Monarchs, 3-1, at the end of one period and 4-2 through the second intermission. But after rugged defenseman Adam McQuaid scores twice to cut the deficits to 3-2 and 4-3, Kirk MacDonald draws a 4-4 knot at 8:34 of the third period. Then, with 48 seconds left in regulation, McQuaid and Brad Marchand set up Andrew Bodnarchuk for the go-ahead strike en route to a 5-4 win at The Dunk.
