No. 3 Pioneers Surge Past No. 1 Huskies, 5-1
Denver scores three power-play goals
Nov. 11, 2017
The No. 3 University of Denver Pioneers (6-2-2, 2-2-0-0) scored three power-play goals en route to a 5-1 win against the No. 1 St. Cloud State University Huskies (7-2-0, 2-2-0-0) at Magness Arena on Saturday night.
The teams skated to a scoreless first period, but power plays would define the second frame as Adam Plant capitalized on a pair of opportunities for the Pioneers.
Midway through the second period, Plant struck again as he sent a shot from the blue line through traffic and the five-hole of Huskies goalie David Hrenak. Liam Finlay and Michael Davies had assists on the power play goal. After surrendering a 3-0 lead, the Huskies got on the board with Kevin Fitzgerald's goal at 11:14 of the second period to make it 3-1 at the second intermission.
Early in the third period, Denver went back on the man-advantage with their second five-minute power play of the night. At 2:43 of the frame, Ian Mitchell took a shot from the point and Dylan Gambrell caught a piece of the puck to make it 4-1. The Pioneers extended their lead to 5-1 at 14:02 of the third period when Troy Terry drove the net and Jarid Lukosevicius put the rebound past Hrenak.
Denver finished 3/8 on the power play and 5/5 on the penalty kill. Tanner Jaillet made 21 saves in the victory.
