This Date In Providence Bruins History: January 26

2000: John Grahame weathers a 21-shot tempest within the second period alone and finishes the night with a pristine 43-save effort while goals by Sean Pronger, Eric Manlow and Nick Boynton spell the difference in a 3-0 home win over the Quebec Citadelles.

2001: Lee Goren and Eric Nickulas tune the mesh to delete a 2-0 deficit and tie the expansion Norfolk Admirals, 2-2, in the P-Bruins first trip to the Norfolk Scope.

2002: Sean Haggerty tallies a hat trick to help the P-Bruins surmount a 2-0 deficit en route to a 5-4 win over the Quebec Citadelles at Le Colisee. It is the Baby Bs’ last visit to Quebec, where they went 6-1-0, including a playoff sweep, during the Citadelles’ three years of existence.
