This Date In Providence Bruins History: January 23

1998: Assistant coach Rod Langway, an eventual Hall of Fame inductee for his years with the Washington Capitals, comes out of retirement to play his first of 10 P-Bruins games in a 6-3 road win over the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks.

2004: Initially trailing, 3-0, near the halfway mark of regulation, the P-Bruins ultimately salvage a point courtesy of three unanswered goals via Brendan Walsh, Ivan Huml and Andre Savage. Although, the visiting Manchester Monarchs claim the extra point in overtime when future Montreal Canadien Mike Cammalleri scores to cement a 4-3 decision at The Dunk.

2011: Nolan Schaefer stops 36 Manchester Monarchs shots in regulation, five in overtime and four in a six-round shootout. Zach Hamill, Max Sauve and Trent Whitfield all convert to give the P-Bruins the extra point in a 2-1 decision at The Dunk.
