This Date In Providence Bruins History: February 18

1994: A 2-for-5 night on the power play gives the host P-Bruins 14 consecutive games with at least one man-up strike and a 5-2 win over the Adirondack Red Wings, which grants the defending Northern Division champions a supra.-500 record for the first time all season. Defenseman Darren Stolk pilots the offensive cause with two assists and the game-winning goal.

2000: The P-Bruins blow a 4-2 lead late in the third period, but end their four-game pointless streak by tying the Saint John Flames, 4-4, at Harbour Station.

2011: The P-Bruins snap a seven-game losing streak by edging the Portland Pirates in a shootout at The Dunk. Michael Hutchinson stops 47 shots, including six in the five-minute overtime, plus four in the one-on-ones.
