PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The 15th-ranked Providence College men's hockey team got goals from six different players en route to a resounding 6-3 win over No. 12/13 St. Lawrence on Saturday at Schneider Arena.

After a three-goal output from the newcomers on Friday night against Clarkson, they responded once again to combined for four goals and two assists on the night. Senior Anthony Florentino led the way with his first career three-point effort as he added a goal and two assists. Erik Foley, Jake Walman, Josh Monk, and Brian Pinho each recorded two-point games for the Friars.

Hayden Hawkey made 17 saves to earn his second win of the season, while Saints netminder Kyle Hayton surrendered all six goals before being relieved by Daniel Mannella.

The Friars carried a 2-1 lead after 20 minutes on goals by Scott Conway and Shane Kavanagh. Kavanagh, the East Providence native, notched his first collegiate goal on a breakaway deke at 16:29 of the first period.

Providence extended its lead to 4-1 early in the middle frame with a pair of strikes on the power play. Freshman Jacob Bryson hammered home a one-time shot from the point off a feed from Bryan Lemos to put the Friars up 3-1 before Erik Foley's work down low led to a re-direct of a Walman shot to make it a three goal game. A shorthanded goal by St. Lawrence's Alexander Dahl and a goal by Joe Sullivan brought the visiting Saints back to within one at 4-3 entering the third.

Josh Wilkins restored the two-goal lead for the Friars just 51 seconds into the third after he wired a wrister over the glove of Hayton the power play to make it a 5-3 game. Florentino concluded the scoring at 6:51 when he fired a shot from the top of the circles past Hayton for his first tally of the season.

A penalty-plagued game saw the teams combine for 71 penalty minutes over the final two periods.

The Friars are back in action next Friday (Oct. 28) for a nationally televised contest (ASN) at Boston College beginning at 6 p.m.
