This Date In Providence Bruins History: December 4

1992: Mike Bales garners the first shutout in P-Bruins history as he turns back all 38 of the Hershey Bears’ shots to backstop a 6-0 triumph at the Civic Center.

1998: Brandon Smith and Landon Wilson each convert on a power play to delete 1-0 and 2-1 deficits against the Hartford Wolf Pack, who had already won four out of four meetings in the season series. In the subsequent overtime, Cameron Mann effectively turns the tables with a walkoff goal.

2005: Eric Healey, Shawn McEachern and Eric Nickulas each collect a goal and an assist to pilot the P-Bruins past Johnny Boychuk and the visiting Lowell Lock Monsters, 3-0. Tim Thomas only needs to deal with 15 shots in the shutout.

2009: Brad Marchand scores his second straight shootout decider to beat the Portland Pirates, 3-2, at the Cumberland County Civic Center.
