This Date In Providence Bruins History: May 14

2000: The Hartford Wolf Pack delete 1-0 and 2-1 deficits. But in the second overtime, second-time P-Bruin Jeff Wells scores to cement a 3-2 victory, bringing Providence to within one win of a rematch with the Rochester Americans in the Calder Cup Finals. Other highlights include a 63-save effort by John Grahame and a washout of a would-be Hartford overtime goal by future P-Bruin Tony Tuzzolino.

2005: A 5-2 win at The Dunk finishes a four-games-to-one series victory over the favored Lowell Lock Monsters, sending the P-Bruins to the AHL’s final four for the first time since 2001 and fourth time in seven seasons. Andy Hilbert pilots the offense with his third four-point playoff game with the Spoked-Ps.
