Dugan’s goal was assisted by Tyce Thompson and Michael Callahan. This ended up being Dugan’s only point on the night but its enough to push his NCAA-leading point total to 36 on the season.

Providence’s third and final goal of the game came in at 7:26 in the third period with Matt Koopman scoring off a filthy assist from Thompson. Callahan also picked up an assist on the goal.
