Sept. 17, 2013
WAKEFIELD, Mass. - The Women's Hockey East Association released the 2013-14 preseason coaches poll, today, Tuesday, Sept. 17. The Friars earned a fourth place finish in the poll with 38 votes.
Last season, the Friars finished in fifth place with a conference record of 8-10-3 and an overall record of 15-16-5. Providence earned a spot in the Hockey East semifinal round for the 11th consecutive year, making the Friars the only team in Hockey East to do so.
The Friars notched an overtime comeback win on the road to earn their semifinal round appearance. Providence battled back from a three goal deficit to defeat New Hampshire 5-4 in the quarterfinal round at the Whittemore Center in Durham, N.H.
Providence went on to face fourth-ranked and top-seeded Boston University in the Hockey East semifinal round, where the Friars fell to the Terriers, 4-0.
Hockey East held its annual women's media teleconference with all eight head coaches later in the day on the 17th. Head Coach Bob Deraney spoke about the season ahead and his expectations of the team as the season approaches.
"I believe Hockey East is one of the best leagues in the country," Dearaney shared. "To make it back to Hyannis and the Hockey East Tournament will be a real test for everyone in the league."
Deraney also was asked how the Olympic year will play into effect with some of the top players from around the league gone to represent their respective countries.
