Noel Acciari notched a goal and two assists as seven different Friars scored goals.
Mark Jankowski scored the game-tying goal with 20 seconds left.
Ben Barr is in his third season as an assistant coach of the Providence College men's hockey program.
With the Friars, Barr has been part of a staff that has engineered a turnaround that has seen the Friars make back-to-back Hockey East Championship semifinal appearances for the first time since 1996. Last season, Providence finished the year with a winning record (17-14-7) for the first time since 2006.
Barr is involved in all aspects of the Friar program, including helping design practice and skill sessions, working on opponent video scouting, working with the power-play unit and face-off plays as well as recruiting. During games, Barr works closely with the forwards. Last season, Providence scored 105 goals, its highest total since 2006.
Prior to Providence, Barr, who spent three seasons at Union College, was instrumental in helping the Dutchmen post a 66-39-13 mark during his tenure. While at Union, Barr's responsibilities were recruiting, working with the forwards on the ice, assisting with special teams, managing the team's off-ice strength and conditioning program, coordinating team travel and video analysis. During the 2010-11 season, Barr helped guide the Dutchmen to a school record 144 goals. In addition, Union had the top power play in the nation as it posted a 29.5 percent success rate.
A 2004 graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and a four-year member of the hockey team, Barr served as a volunteer coach at his alma mater in 2004-05 and 2007-08 before being hired at Union. In addition, he was a coach for the USA Hockey Select 15 Team during the summer of 2009 and 2010. Barr also served as a coach for the USA Hockey Select 14 Team during the summer of 2008 and for the Select 17 Team in 2007. From 2005 to 2007 he was the head coach for the Capital District Select AAA PeeWee Major Hockey Team.
As a student-athlete at RPI, Barr totalled 64 points (25 goals and 39 assists) in 140 career games. He was the team's most valuable player in 2002-03 and was presented with the team's Coaches' Award in 2002-03 and in 2003-04. During his junior season, he recorded a team-best three short-handed goals and finished tied for the team lead with three game-winning goals. Barr served as a captain in his senior season and again led the team in short-handed goals (two) and game winners (three).
Barr also excelled in the classroom as he was named to the Rensselaer Dean's List all four years and was on the 2004 President's List. He also was selected to the ECAC All-Academic Team during the 2003-04 season.
A native of Fairbault, Minn., Barr attended Shattuck St. Mary's Prep school and was awarded the Williams Cup for best all-around athlete in 2000. He and his wife, Tara, reside in Warwick.
