PROVIDENCE, R.I. - With 3:46 remaining in regulation, junior Trevor Mingoia (Fairport, N.Y.) scored to break a 3-3 tie, propelling the No. 16 Providence College men's hockey team to a 4-3 victory over No. 13/14 Colgate University on Tuesday night at Schneider Arena (2,122).
Shane Luke (Dauphin, Manitoba) had two power-play goals and John Gilmour (Montreal, Quebec) had a goal and two assist to lead the Providence (9-6-1, 6-4-0 HEA) offense, while Noel Acciari (Johnston, R.I.) added two assists.
Colgate (9-6-1, 3-2-1 ECAC) had three players with multiple points on the night including Evan Peterson, Brett Corkey and Ryan Johnston.
Providence held a 2-1 advantage after the opening period of play as Luke netted both goals in the frame. His first goal of the game came at 10:06 of the period and was started by a point shot from Gilmour. Colgate goaltender Charlie Finn saved the initial shot but let up a rebound. Acciari kicked the puck to himself and then got the puck over to Luke, who tapped in his fourth goal of the season.
Tyson Spink responded for the Raiders at 11:57 of the first period to even the score, 1-1, with Tylor Spink and Johnston each assisting on the play.
Luke's second power-play goal of the first period came at 15:40. Similar to the first Providence goal, the play was started by Gilmour, who shot the puck into the Raiders' zone. Acciari gained control behind the Colgate net and sent a pass to Luke, who slid the puck past Finn to put the Friars back on top, 2-1.
After a second period that included six power-play chances for the Raiders and several good scoring chances for the Friars, the score remained 2-1.
But in the third, Colgate tied the game at 2-2 when Jake Kulevich scored on a blast from the blue line while the Raiders were on the power play at 1:39.
The Friars once again regained the lead at 8:42 of the third period when Gilmour scored his second goal of the season. Providence had a 3-on-1 opportunity as the team took advantage of a line change by the Raiders. Freshman Brian Pinho (North Andover, Mass.) skated into the Colgate zone and slid a pass to junior Nick Saracino (St. Louis, Mo.). Saracino drove to the net with the puck but could not beat Finn. Gilmour stayed with the play, sending the rebound past Finn for a 3-2 lead.
Once again the Raiders responded to even the score. Murphy recorded the goal at 12:59 of the period by redirecting a Brett Corkey shot past Friar goaltender Jon Gillies.
Then after several scoring chances at both ends, Mingoia's fourth game-winning goal of the season came unassisted at 16:14 of the third period. Mingoia cut down the slot as the Raiders attempted a breakout and pounced on a chance to take control of the puck, quickly deked Finn in close and finished for his team-high ninth goal of the season.
Gillies went on to earn his eighth win of the season, stopping 29 Colgate shots. Finn finished the game with 27 saves for the Raiders.
Providence finished the game 2-for-5 on the power play, while Colgate was 1-for-7.
The Friars will begin the second half of their season at 4:00 p.m. on Dec. 28 with a non-conference game against Massachusetts as part of the Sheraton/TD Bank Catamount Cup in Burlington, Vt.
