WAKEFIELD, Mass. -
The Hockey East Association and the New England Sports Network (NESN) announced on Saturday afternoon (Feb. 16) that Providence’s game at Boston College on Saturday, March 2 will now be played at 4:00 p.m. and broadcast live by NESN. The game was originally slated for 7:00 p.m., but NESN flexed to the matchup as two of the current top-four teams in Hockey East will face-off at Conte Forum.
Tom Caron (play-by-play) and Craig Janney (color analyst) will have the call of the game from the campus of Boston College. Hockey East Overtime LIVE will air immediately following the conclusion of the game, featuring studio host Jamison Coyle, as well as analysts Jim Connelly and Shawn McEachern.
As part of a home-and-home series on the second to last weekend of the regular season, the Eagles and Friars will play at 7:00 p.m. the night before (March 1) at Schneider Arena in Providence, R.I.
Unbeaten in their last four games, the Friars return to the ice tomorrow (Sunday, Feb. 17) at 4:00 p.m. as they play host to 19th-ranked Merrimack at Schneider Arena. The Warriors enter the game first in the Hockey East standings, three points ahead of Providence, who is currently in fourth. The game will be broadcast locally by Cox Sports on OSN.
