This Date In Providence Bruins History: November 25

1994: One week after they ended a five-game losing skid at the expense of the Baby Habs, the P-Bruins throttle the Fredericton Canadiens once more, 8-2, to augment their winning streak to four games. Daniel Lacroix and Grigori Panteleev each log a multi-goal game in the Black Friday matinee that effectively replaces that of the parent Boston Bruins, who at the time are still in the midst of a lockout.

1995: Davis Payne splashes his 18-game goal-scoring drought with two strikes as part of a come-from-behind, 3-1 road victory over Adirondack.

1998: The P-Bruins garner national airtime on both CNN and ESPN2 when they sculpt a whopping 10-1 lead in the first period and pace themselves to a 14-2 victory in Syracuse. Randy Robitaille sets a franchise record with five goals on the night and adds two assists to join Landon Wilson in the exclusive seven-point club. Andre Savage and Cameron Mann insert two goals of their own in the record-setting first period with Mann’s stick going to the Hockey Hall of Fame after he scores the team’s 10th goal.

2005: The P-Bruins play their fourth consecutive overtime game and win their third straight with a 5-4 decision against Portland at The Dunk. Fueled by the multipoint efforts of Ben Guite (goal, assist), Jason MacDonald (goal, assist), Tyler Redenbach (two assists) and Jonathan Sigalet (two assists), the Bs delete 1-0, 3-1 and 4-2 deficits before Ben Walter converts in sudden-death.

2009: Seven different point-getters pace the P-Bruins past the defending champion Hershey Bears, 4-1, at the Giant Center.
