Maine Downs Providence
ORONO, Maine -- The University of Maine used excellent special teams play as the Black Bears converted on four of five power-play opportunities and notched one short-handed goal to defeat Providence College, 6-3, on Saturday, Nov. 1 in HOCKEY EAST action at Orono, Maine.
PC took a quick 1-0 lead as freshman Heath Gordon broke down the left side and slid a low shot under Maine netminder Bryan Masotta at 2:26 of the first period. After Jim Leger evened the game at 1-1 at the 6:09 mark of the first, Maine took a 3-1 lead on a power play goal by Dan Kerluke at 13:20 of the first and a short-handed tally by Shawn Wansborough with 4:18 remaining in the first period.
Wansborough struck again at 17:32 of the second period as he notched the Black Bears' second power-play goal of the game and increased Maine's lead to 4-1. However, the Friars battled back in the closing minutes of the second period with Nick Lent wristing in a rebound at 18:03 and Jon Cameron notching a power-play tally with 11 seconds remaining in the period to bring the Friars within one goal (4-3).
Maine held the advantage in the third period outshooting PC, 15-9, and tallying two goals to earn a 6-3 win. Steve Kariya and Cory Larose registered the final two goals of the game for Maine.
Masotta recorded 28 stops in the win. PC netminder Mark Kane registered a season-high 35 saves for the Friars.
With the win Maine raised its record to 4-1-1 overall, 2-0-0 in HOCKEY EAST action, while Providence dropped to 1-2-0 overall and 0-2-0 in league action.
Providence College will return to action on Friday, Nov. 7 against Minnesota-Duluth in Duluth, Minn.
