The University of Maine hockey team controls their own destiny when they host Providence in their regular season finale this evening at Alfond Arena.

South Portland native Jon Gillies stopped 28 shots to help Providence get a huge 4-2 win over Maine on Friday evening.

The Black Bears currently sit fifth in the hockey east standings.

If Maine wins tonight, they would at least finish fourth in the conference and host a hockey east quarterfinal series in two weeks.

The Black Bears could still move all the way up to third in the conference standings, if they win AND Northeastern loses at home against Boston University.

A loss tonight and the best the Black Bears could do would be a road series at Providence or Northeastern in the conference quarterfinals in two weeks.

The Black Bears would have to play a conference first round elimination game next week, If they lose or tie tonight AND UNH wins at Merrimack

The loss last night was big, but that will be forgotten with a win tonight.
