The Friars advance to the Frozen Four for the fifth time in program history, and the second time during the Nate Leaman era.
The last time the Friars went to the Frozen Four was in 2015, when they went on to with the National Championship. Providence will face the winner of the Midwest Regional Final between Quinnipiac and Minnesota Duluth.
