PC is an even .500 this season, with a record of 9-9-2. There are not many notable wins to report other than when they beat BU in their first game of the season. A week after dropping BU, the Friars skated into a two game series, at home, with current number one ranked Minnesota Duluth. Providence was outplayed in game one, a game that I actually was in attendance, losing 5-2. The next night though, PC tied the defending National Champions 2-2. PC's next big win was an overtime shocker, in which they topped previously unbeaten Merrimack 2-1. the next night, the Friars rolled over the Warriors 6-1 at Merrimack.
Freshman Ross Mauermann has racked up a team leading 17 points (8g, 9a) in 20 games. Closely behind is Sophomore Derek Army with 15 points, eight goals and seven assists. Providence's goal scoring leader is Tim Schaller, a junior from Merrimack, New Hampshire has 10 goals in 17 games played.
Every time BU plays Providence and Alex Beaudry is between the pipes, I think of when he stood on his head and knocked off the team of the decade, the '09 BU team, at Agganis on a Tuesday night in February. This year, the Cumberland, Ontario native has an 8-8-2 record with a .902 record and one shutout. He has allowed 50 goals on 510 shots thus far. Beaudry holds a 3-7-0 record vs BU.
