PROVIDENCE, R.I. – After securing a bye to begin the Hockey East Tournament, the third-seeded Providence College men’s hockey team (20-10-4) will host the sixth-seeded University of Maine Black Bears (18-14-4) beginning Friday night (March 9) at Schneider Arena in a best-of-three series. All games, including a game three if necessary, will begin at 7 p.m.
The teams will meet in the postseason for the first time since the 2014 Quarterfinals, where the Friars claimed a two-game sweep over the Black Bears at Schneider Arena. Overall, Providence is 7-5 all-time against Maine in the postseason and is currently unbeaten in 16 games against the Black Bears (15-0-1), winning 12-consecutive games.
