A few days after the Providence College Friars topped both national polls (USCHO.com poll, USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll), the reigning national champions picked up back-to-back wins over Northeastern in a home-and-home set this past weekend.
Calgary Flames prospect Mark Jankowski played a big part in their success.
The Providence senior collected four points against Northeastern, two in each game, and is now second in team scoring with 15 points through 11 skates.
On Friday, Jankowski scored a pair of goals in the 5-2 victory at Schneider Arena. At 3:47 of the first period, the Flames' 2012 first round pick scored a power play marker, shoveling a Nick Saracino rebound past the Huskies netminder.
Late in the second period, he scored what would be the game-winning marker while the Friars had the man advantage. The 21-year-old was named the game's second star.
Saturday's game started in a similar fashion, with Jankowski scoring the first goal 1:40 into the opening frame. He then assisted on Saracino's goal later on in the period.
Jankowski was named the second star in Saturday's 3-0 Providence victory.
He and Friars are back in action on Saturday when they host the Yale Bulldogs.
