LOWELL, Mass. - The Providence College men's hockey team was defeated by No. 7 UMass Lowell, 3-2, in overtime in game two of a best-of-three Hockey East Quarterfinal series Friday night at the Tsongas Center in Lowell, Mass. The series is now tied at a game apiece. Game three is at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 11 at the Tsongas Center. Zack Kamrass scored the game winner at 11:29 of the first overtime to seal the win.
In overtime, the Friars were pressuring the River Hawks as they hit the post twice, but UML's Joseph Pendenza made a rush down the left wing, fired a shot that was turned aside by PC goalie Alex Beaudry (Cumberland, Ont.). However, Kamrass was in the slot to tap the puck into the empty net.
UMass Lowell (23-11-1) scored late in the first period to take a 1-0 lead. Chad Ruhwedel gained possession of the puck just inside the PC blue line, eluded a Providence player, before flipping a back-handed shot past Beaudry at 17:28.
The lead increased to 2-0 early in the second period when Matt Ferreira knocked in a rebound on the power play for his 13th goal of the season at 00:52. Providence (13-19-4) scored two quick goals in the latter half of the second period to tie the game at 2-2. Junior Myles Harvey (Orlando, Fla.) made it a 2-1 game when he ripped a slap shot from the top of the left circle past UML goalie Doug Carr at 13:43. Freshman Barrett Kaib (Pittsburgh, Pa.) assisted on Harvey's seventh goal of the season. Just 1:56 later, freshman Stefan Demopoulos (La Mesa, Calif.) put in a rebound from in close after the initial shot by classmate Shane Luke (Dauphin, Man.) was saved. The Friars nearly took the lead in the final seconds of the period, but Carr made two big saves to keep the game tied.
Both teams finished with 36-36 shots on goal. Beaudry had 33 saves, while Carr finished with 34 stops.
