Danny Linell and Bill Arnold each scored in a span of 11 seconds to increase BC's lead to 3-0, before Barry Almeida and Johnny Gaudreau each converted on breakaways following PC power plays to cap off the scoring in the first period.
Providence (12-16-4, 10-12-3 Hockey East) finished with a 9-6 edge in shots in the second period, but could not convert. The Eagles added two goals in the third period to complete the weekend series sweep of the Friars. BC outshot PC for the game, 31-29.
