PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Being the four seed and going down 3-0 in the first 11:08 of the hockey game isn’t exactly a recipe for success. However, there was no quit in Providence College’s hockey team on Saturday in front of 7,180 partisans at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center.The Friars rallied for six unanswered goals, four coming on the power play, to skate past Minnesota State, the third overall seed in the tournament. Up next is a date with Cornell, 5-1 winners over Northeastern, in Sunday’s East Regional final.The defensive lapses and miscues that caused a 3-0 deficit were very uncharacteristic of the Friars. There were blown assignments, including two lapses that allowed Minnesota State players to drive the far post for goals. Another pass from the boards right into the middle was intercepted, resulting in the puck being in the back of the net.Junior defenseman Jacob Bryson was there to pick up his fellow blue liners. The Buffalo Sabres prospect was on the ice for all six of Providence’s goals while only being out for one of the Mavericks’ tallies.
