PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The Providence College men's hockey team was defeated, 6-4, by Holy Cross Friday night at Schneider Arena in PC's home opener at Schneider Arena. The Crusaders (1-1-0) scored three times on the power play, including the game winner in the third period to record their first win of the season. PC fell to 0-4-0.
Dale Reinhardt broke a 4-4 tie when he scored a power-play goal off a pass from freshman Mark Znutas at 2:52 of third period. Peter Lorinser added an empty-net goal to complete the scoring.
The Friars started strong early in the first period, but a five-minute major penalty helped the Crusaders take a 2-0 lead after the first 20 minutes. Ryan Driscoll scored twice on the power play, including one on a two-man advantage. In the second period, the Friars also used the power play to even the score. Junior Kyle Laughlin (Gambrills, Md.) scored from the slot at 2:53, while freshman Eric Baier (North Kingstown, R.I.) tallied his first collegiate goal at 5:29 to make the score, 2-2. However, Dewey Thomson helped Holy Cross regain the lead at 7:34, but the Friars rallied again to tie the game at 11:03 on the power play when junior John Mori (Westport, Conn.) slid a back-handed pass to senior Jon Rheault (Deering, N.H.) who fired rhe puck into the empty net for his first goal of the season. Less than a minute later, Lorinser scored his first goal of the night as Holy Cross took the lead, 4-3, at 12:41. Laughlin found the net again at 15:41 to make the score, 4-4. It marked the first time since December 22, 2005 that PC scored four goals in one period.
The Friars outshot the Crusaders, 35-20, including 12-3 in the third period. Ian Adams finished with 31 saves for Holy Cross, while PC's Tyler Sims (Fort Wayne, Ind.) stopped 14 shots.
