PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
After posting a 1-0-1 record against then third-ranked Miami University this past weekend, the Providence College men's hockey team moved up five places to No. 3 in the USCHO.com and USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine polls.
The Friars are now 4-0-1 on the season. On Friday, Oct. 25, Providence posted a 3-2 overtime win against the RedHawks as freshman forward Niko Rufo (Stoneham, Mass.) scored the game-winning goal 1:38 into overtime. Then on Saturday, Oct. 26 the Friars and RedHawks played a back and forth affair that ended in a 4-4 tie. Sophomore goaltender Jon Gillies made 37 saves in the tie.
The last time the Friars reached the top-five in the national rankings was when they were ranked No. 5 in the USA Today/American Hockey magazine preseason poll on Oct. 1, 2001. With Friday night's win over Miami, Providence defeated a top-10 team while also ranked in the top-10 for the first time since posting a 5-3 win over Boston College on Feb. 9, 2001.
