This Date In Providence Bruins History: April 28

2006: Eric Healey converts a penalty shot in the second period and tunes the mesh again in overtime for the team's second straight 5-4 win over Portland, once again averting elimination from the first round of the playoffs.

2008: Martins Karsums scores a hat trick, Pascal Pelletier assists on all three of his goals and another 12 skaters pitch in at least one point to lash Portland, 7-1, at The Dunk. The win gives the regular-season champion P-Bruins a 2-0 lead in the series and a 6-0 start to their playoff run.
