It is a clean sweep for Mark Jankowski, John Gilmour, and the Providence College Friars.

Last year's NCAA Champions downed Merrimack in two games in the Hockey East quarter-finals, outscoring the Warriors 5-1 in the process. The Friars will face either Vermount or Boston College in the semi-finals on Mar. 18.

Game One, which took place on Friday, featured goals from Nick Saracino, Erik Foley, and Trevor Mingoia. Jankowski, the Calgary Flames' first round pick in 2012, set up both Foley and Mingoia's third period tallies and was a plus-two in the 3-1 Providence victory.

Gilmour, drafted by the Flames in the seventh round of the 2013 NHL Draft, was credited with three shots on Friday night.

Providence blanked Merrimack 2-0 on Saturday night, punching their ticket to the Hockey East semi-finals. Jankowski had two shots on net and blocked one shot while Gilmour fired four shots on net in Game Two.

Jankowski, a senior, has had a career-season at Providence. He leads the Friars in scoring with 15 goals and 40 points in 36 games and is a plus-26 on the year, the best plus-minus rating on the Friars roster. His 0.69 assists-per-game and 1.11 points-per-game also lead all Providence skaters.

The forward has been stalwart in the face-off circle, taking a team-leading 695 draws and winning 51.4 percent of those face-offs.

Gilmour, also a senior, has also set new career-highs in all offensive categories; he has scored nine goals, 14 assists and 23 points in 32 skates this season. 16 of his points have come on the power play, which is tops among Friars skaters.
