- The teams battled through a scoreless first period as the Friars killed off two Vermont power play chances in the opening 20 minutes. The Catamounts held a 10-7 advantage in shots over that span.

- After killing off UVM's third power play chance of the game, the Friars regrouped and finally broke the ice at 13:50 of the second period as Parker Ford buried a loose puck from the slot past Carriere for his sixth goal of the season. Cody Monds kept a loose puck alive after Max Crozier fired a shot to the slot to give Ford a clean look down low.

- Providence killed off its fourth Catamount power play chance of the evening with under seven minutes to play to hold the 1-0 lead intact.

- Vermont was caught for a faceoff violation with 3:18 remaining and the Friars got the insurance marker just eight seconds into the power play on Patrick Moynihan's third goal of the weekend and fifth of the season. Brett Berard fed Moynihan for a one-timer after Parker Ford's faceoff win.

- The Friars are 7-of-12 on the power play over the last three games.
