In the final game of the regular season the Providence College Friars have punched their ticket to the Hockey East Playoffs. That spot comes despite of a 1-0 loss to Maine on Friday night on the road.
PC outshot Maine 48-to-24 but the Black Bear’s goaltender Jeremy Swayman made 48 saves and blanked a dangerous Friars attack.
Providence will now prepare for a best of three series in the Hockey East Quarterfinals starting next Friday at either Boston College or UMass. The opponent will be determined tomorrow night by Northeastern. A Huskies loss or a tie would send PC to UMass, a Huskies win results in PC heading to face Boston College.
