Golden Knights prospect Jack Dugan, who leads the NCAA in scoring with 36 points (7G, 29A), found the back of the net midway through the first period with a power-play goal at the 9:23 mark. Five minutes later, Luke Johnson doubled the Friars' lead heading into the first intermission. After a scoreless second, Providence and Army exchanged goals in the third to send the Friars ahead with a 3-1 victory. Providence will face the winner of No. 6 Ohio State and No. 2 Cornell in the championship game Saturday.
