BOSTON - Scott Wilson scored the go-ahead goal with 7:30 remaining in the third period as top-seeded UMass Lowell rallied for a 2-1 win over Providence Friday in a Hockey East tournament semifinal.
A.J. White also scored for the River Hawks (25-10-2), who will play either Boston University or Boston College for the conference crown Saturday.
Jon Gillies had 31 saves for Providence (17-14-7), but couldn't hold off the River Hawks in the third. He was bumped by a teammate when White scored on a rebound 34 seconds into the period to tie it. And Wilson started the winning sequence with a steal and pass to Riley Wetmore along the boards. Wetmore completed the give-and-go with a backhanded pass to Wilson for a one-timer.
The Friars had held a 1-0 lead since Kevin Rooney poked in a rebound with 11:01 left in the first.
Connor Hellebuyck finished with 34 saves for UMass Lowell.
