This Date In Providence Bruins History: January 1

1993: Glen Murray’s hat trick pilots a 9-7 barnburning victory at Moncton.

1999: The P-Bruins connect on four out of a mere 16 shots on goal, just enough to beat the host Springfield Falcons, 4-3.

2010: Rick DiPietro props up a 2-1 lead for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers between the 9:56 mark of the opening frame and 11:47 of the third period. But then, Drew Larman and Trent Whitfield each connect in a span of five minutes to usurp a 3-2 lead and Jordan Knackstedt (two assists) ices a 4-2 home win with an empty netter.
