2003: Facing the specter of a first-round sweep after losing the first two games of a best-of-five series at The Dunk, the P-Bruins hold off the upset-minded Manitoba Moose for one night with a 1-0, Game 3 win at Winnipeg Arena. Andrew Raycroft repels all 41 shots faced while Zdenek Kutlak inserts the game’s only goal in the final minute of the second period.

2007: David Krejci’s playmaker hat trick helps the P-Bruins to even their best-of-seven first-round series with Hartford, 1-1, in a 4-2 win at the Hartford Civic Center.
