GAME FLOW & NOTES
- Catherine Tufts got the Black Bears on the board first with a goal at the 14:50 mark of the first period. Anna Zikova played the puck up to Ebba Strandberg who skated along the boards and played a pass to the top of the crease for Tufts to knock past Madison Myers (Colchester, Vt.).
- Ariane Julien (Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec) responded for the Friars with an unassisted goal. She blocked a shot in the defensive end, skated through center ice and beat Carly Jackson with a wrist shot on the partial breakaway.
- Just two minutes into the second period, Madison Myers recorded her 2,000th career save. She became the fourth goalie in Providence history to eclipse that mark.
- Myers made a highlight reel save in the closing minutes of the middle frame. She slid across the crease in a full split to deny Cailey Hutchinson on the two-on-one bid.
- With 6:45 to play in regulation, Blair Parent (Blaine, Minn.) walked in alone on Jackson. She made a move to the backhand, but Jackson’s glove was there to preserve the tie.
- Providence had the lone power play of the overtime frame, after Brooke Boquist (Thunder Bay, Ontario) was hauled down on the breakaway. The Friars were unable to convert.
- Both teams had multiple power play opportunities throughout the game. Providence and Maine both finished 0/5. The teams entered the game as the top two penalty kill units in Hockey East (Providence: 86.0%, Maine: 85.7%).
