This Date In Providence Bruins History: March 5

1993: The team wins its fifth straight game and rookie goaltender Mike Bales wins his fourth straight in a 7-3 lashing of Rochester at the Providence Civic Center.

1995: Sandy Moger’s hat trick helps to sculpt an initial 4-0 lead, which the P-Bruins subsist upon long enough to top the visiting Springfield Falcons, 5-2. Moger’s second and third goals both come on a power play (5-on-3, then 5-on-4) as the man-up brigade goes 4-for-7 on the day.

2004: Matt Herr records his first multi-goal game of the season and breaks a 2-2 tie with 40 seconds left in the third period to beat the Hershey Bears at The Dunk.

2006: With Providence trailing, 2-1, entering the third period, Jordan Sigalet stops all 12 shots in the closing frame as his team pulls even. He then stops four more in overtime and all five of the Hershey Bears shootout attempts while Ben Guite scores the decider for a 3-2 win at the Giant Center.

2008: The P-Bruins engage the San Antonio Rampage for the first time, losing a 4-1 decision at the AT&T Center.
