Friars take down Cornell 4-0 to advance to Frozen Four

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) —  The Providence Friars are heading to Frozen Four in Buffalo, New York after a 4-0 win over Cornell in the East Regional Finals.

Unlike their 6-3 comeback win in the first round, the Friars took control from the get-go in their second-round matchup.

It was Greg Printz who put gave Providence 1-0 lead just over halfway through the first period.

In the second period, the Friars notched two more goals when Josh Wilkins scored their second goal less than two minutes into the second period and then Scott Conway who scored another with 0.6 seconds left in the period.

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.
