The NBC Sports Network has announced that the Providence men's hockey game at UMass Lowell on Thursday, Jan. 17 has been added to its slate of nationally-televised college hockey games. Thursday’s game will begin at 7:00 p.m.
The RiverHawks and Friars will meet for the first time this season and NBC Sports will broadcast the game live from UMass Lowell’s Tsongas Center. Last season, the teams played six times including three regular season Hockey East games and a three-game Hockey East quarterfinal series.
