Bruins fans, look away. After winning the first three games of their Eastern Conference semifinal series, the B’s AHL affiliate in Providence proceeded to drop four straight to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins (Pittsburgh’s farm club), who completed the comeback with a 5-0 shellacking of the P-Bruins on their home ice Wednesday night. It marked just the third time in AHL history that a team has come back from 3-0 to win a series, a collapse that of course brings back memories of 2010, when the big-league Bruins blew an identical lead to the Flyers in the same round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The P-Bruins, owners of the league’s best record in the regular season, seemed primed to advance after Carter Camper‘s overtime goal in Game 3 brought them a win away from closing out the series. But the Penguins rallied to win the next two games (including a rowdy, brawl-filled Game 5 in Wilkes-Barre) before scoring two unanswered goals to take Game 6 in OT at the Dunkin Donuts Center. After routing the Baby B’s in Game 7, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton now advances to take on the Syracuse Crunch in the Eastern Conference finals. As Wayne Whittaker of TheHockeyWriters.com points out, Providence forward Trent Whitfield was also a member of that 2010 Bruins squad, giving him the unpleasant distinction of coughing up a 3-0 series lead with two different teams. Congrats to Trent Whitfield for officially becoming the first professional athlete to be on two teams that have blown 3-0 series leads.— Wayne Whittaker (@WayneTwittaker) May 23, 2013
