This Date In Providence Bruins History: December 18

1998: Former PC Friar Joe Hulbig’s equalizer and Jeff Daw’s sudden-death strike gives the Hamilton Bulldogs a 3-2 overtime win at the Civic Center, snapping the P-Bruins nine-game home winning streak. However, the Baby Bs’ home unbeaten streak is still technically intact as they cultivate a point through the regulation tie.

2004: Despite conceding the extra point to the Wolf Pack in a shootout at the Hartford Civic Center, the P-Bruins extend their unbeaten streak to eight games (6-0-2).

2010: Kirk MacDonald and Jamie Arniel score 52 seconds apart midway through the third period to sculpt a 2-0 lead, enough for the P-Bruins to subsist through an eventual 2-1 road win over the two-time defending champion Hershey Bears.
