This Date In Providence Bruins History: April 12

1996: In their final regular-season home game and with two more on the road, the P-Bruins muster a vital victory over the Carolina Monarchs, who are the only threat to their playoff spot.

2000: Four different goal-scorers give the P-Bruins a 4-1 win over Quebec in Game 1 of the Atlantic Division Semifinals.

2006: Nine individual point-getters help Providence delete initial 1-0 and 2-1 deficits before topping the host Manchester Monarchs, 4-2.

2008: With his college career finished, University of New Hampshire senior Kevin Regan travels a half-hour away from campus to make his P-Bruins debut against Manchester. He turns away all 23 shots-faced and keeps his mates in the game until they erupt for three goals within the final 3:08 of regulation to claim a 3-0 victory at Verizon Wireless Arena.
