PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Senior goalie Tyler Wall (Leamington, Ont.) tied a career-high with 40 saves to help the UMass Lowell Hockey team earn a 3-2 road victory against No. 7 ranked Providence College on Saturday night in Hockey East play at Schneider Arena.
Freshman forward Carl Berglund (Hammaro, Sweden) scored the game-clinching goal with 39.7 seconds left in the extra session to give the River Hawks the victory.
"It was an exciting game, I thought we came out well," said UMass Lowell Head Coach Norm Bazin. "I thought there was a stretch in the second period that was a span of 10 minutes that wasn't us, in the sense that we weren't at our best. In the third period we were definitely the better team and I thought we took it to them in the third period."
