PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- The No.16 Providence College men's hockey team scored three third period goals, including John Gilmour's game winner, to beat Colorado College 5-3 at Schneider Arena (1,950) on Sunday afternoon. The win was the fifth in a row for the Friars, who have also won none of their last 10 games.

With the win, Providence (13-6-1, 6-4-0 HEA) earned a weekend sweep of the Tigers (3-13-1, 0-8-1 NCHC). The Friar offense was paced by junior defenseman Tom Parisi (Commack, N.Y.), who had a career-high two goals on the night, as well as junior forward Brandon Tanev(Toronto, Ontario), who finished with a goal and two assists.

Cody Bradley had a goal and an assist for the Tigers, while Colorado College goaltender Chase Perry made 28 saves on the night.

Colorado College struck first when Cody Bradley scored his seventh of the season at 10:20 in the first period, jamming in a low shot after carrying the puck from behind the goal line to the front of the net.

The Friars answered two minutes later when Tom Parisi (Commack, N.Y.) scored his second of the season, firing a wrist shot from the slot off the cross bar and in to make it 1-1. Mark Jankowski (Dundas, Ontario) and Ross Mauermann (Janesville, Wis.) assisted on the play.

Then at 16:41 of the first, the Friars took their first lead, 2-1, when Trevor Mingoia (Fairport, N.Y.) notched his 11th goal of the season. Mingoia scored from in close off a nice power-play passing sequence from Nick Saracino (St. Louis, Mo.) and Jankowski. It was Mingoia's fifth power-play goal of the season.

The Friars came out firing to start the second period, including shots that hit the post by Noel Acciari (Johnston, R.I.) and Jake Walman (Toronto, Ontario) but it was the Tigers who scored next. Peter Stoykewych tied it at 2-2 when he beat Nick Ellis (Millersville, Md.) from the slot off of a feed from Bradley at 9:44.

The score remained tied 2-2 after two periods of play.  

The Friars took the lead back just 23 seconds into the third when Parisi's shot from the point beat Chase Perry low as he was screened by Kevin Rooney (Canton, Mass.). Brandon Tanev (Toronto, Ontario) and Brian Pinho (North Andover, Mass.) earned the assists on the play.

Colorado College once again tied it up when Sam Rothstein tipped in a Jaccob Slavin shot from the point while the Tigers were on the power play. Teemu Kivihalme also assisted on the goal.

The Friars took the lead for good at 13:10 of the third when John Gilmour's (Monteal, Quebec) blast from the point beat Perry high on his glove side. It was Gilmour's third goal of the year and was assisted by Kyle McKenzie (Aston, Pa.) and Tanev.

The Friars sealed the win when Tanev notched an empty net goal at 19:42, with assists going to Rooney and Acciari.

Ellis finished with 19 saves to earn the win for the Friars in his second start of the season, while Perry made 28 stops in the Tigers' net.

Colorado College was 1-for-1 on the power play, while Providence was 1-for-2.  

The Friars close out their non-conference slate next weekend with a home-and-home Mayor's Cup series versus Brown on Friday, Jan. 10 (Meehan Auditorium) and Saturday, Jan. 11 (Schneider Arena). Both games will begin at 7:00 p.m.
