This Date In Providence Bruins History: February 24

1995: The P-Bruins play to a 3-3 tie with the Carolina Monarchs in their first-ever visit to the Greensboro Coliseum.

2001: A hat trick and two assists via Eric Nickulas is the story of a 6-1 romp at the Worcester Centrum, giving the P-Bruins three out of four points in a home-and-home with the AHL-leading IceCats.

2007: Between 19:21 of the first period and 7:07 of the third, Marco Rosa and T.J. Trevelyan each strike twice as the P-Bruins score four unanswered goals and pace themselves to a 6-2 win in Springfield.

2009: The P-Bruins take a point out of a 3-2 shootout decision in Manchester, giving them six consecutive road games without a regulation loss. The single point is effectively salvaged when Vladimir Sobotka draws a 2-2 knot with only 66 seconds to spare an otherwise scoreless third period.
