This Date In Providence Bruins History: January 25

1999: Randy Robitaille and Andre Savage each score an assist for the Canadian All-Stars while Landon Wilson notches his own helper and goaltender Jim Carey stops all seven shots he faces in the second period for PlanetUSA. Wilson and Carey are ultimately on the winning side of a 5-4 shootout decision at Philadelphia’s First Union Center.

2008: For the fourth time in a span of two months and 25 games, the P-Bruins compile a five-game winning streak. Jordan Sigalet relieves Tuukka Rask to stop each of 14 shots-faced and Wacey Rabbit singlehandedly deletes a 3-1 deficit with two goals within 2:50 of clock time. And then Matt Hendricks, Brett Skinner and Jeff Hoggan all convert in a shootout to beat the visiting Springfield Falcons, 4-3.

2011: Max Sauve converts on back-to-back third-period power plays to singlehandedly surmount a 2-1 deficit and pace the P-Bruins to a 4-2 road win over the Connecticut Whale. Earlier in the day, Jamie Arniel is selected to represent the Eastern Conference in the AHL All-Star Game.
