Two (2) power-play goals in the first period and Troy Terry’s four (4) assists fueled the Pioneers’ victory against the RedHawks.

“There are a lot of pieces of our game where we want it to be,” Denver coach Jim Montgomery said. “Being hard offensively is something we have to strive for if we hope to have success ultimately.”

Denver opened the scoring at 2:13 of the first period when Dylan Gambrell took a feed from Terry and slipped a backhander from the slot past the left pad of Ryan Larkin. At 14:14 of the frame, Gambrell helped the Pioneers extend their lead on the man-advantage with a shot that glanced off the shin pad of Jarid Lukosevicius on its way into the net. Denver held a 2-0 lead at the first intermission.

The Pioneers used their momentum from the first period to tally early in the second when Ryan Barrow worked the puck behind the net for Kohen Olischefski, who centered a pass for Rudy Junda. Junda was denied on his initial attempt, but scored on the follow-up to make it 3-0. Miami cut the lead to 3-1 at 3:39 of the period, but Denver would re-establish its three-goal advantage midway through the frame when Logan O’Connor’s pass through the goal crease hit the skate of Henrik Borgström and slid into the net.

Miami scored at 14:25 of the third period to make it a 4-2 game, then added another less than three (3) minutes later to cut the lead to one (1) goal. The 4-3 score stood for less than two (2) minutes as Denver struck again at 17:37 of the third period with Adam Plant’s slap shot from the point. Colin Staub iced the game with an empty netter.

“Tomorrow night we have to come back and be relentless,” Montgomery said. “We have to make them defend and make them play at our pace.” 

Denver finished 2/5 on the power play and 1/1 on the penalty kill. Jaillet made 20 saves.
