- The Friars were strong on the kill, allowing just two shots for Vermont during the three extra man opportunities.

- Providence scored two goals 1:24 apart in the middle of the second period to jump out to a 2-0 lead.

- Just as a Vermont power play expired, Whitney Dove (Port Moody, British Colubmia) lit the lamp for the Friars. She took a wrist shot from the left dot that beat Melissa Black at the far post. Hayley Lunny (Bedford, N.Y.) picked up her fifth assist on Dove's fourth tally of the season.

- Soon after, Emily Landry (Orangeville, Ontario) notched her third of the season. She made a nifty move to beat her defender, shot into Black's pads and then buried her own rebound. Cassidy MacPherson (Oakville, Ontario) and Sara Hjalmarsson (Bankeryd, Sweden) assisted the play.

- With less than two minutes to play in the period, Vermont cut into the lead. Maude Poulin-Labelle scored her third career goal to make it 2-1. Alyssa Gorecki and Lilly Holmes assisted the goal.
