Denver Tops Minnesota Duluth, 1-0

Dec. 1, 2017


Duluth, Minn. -

Tanner Jaillet recorded a 28-save shutout as the University of Denver Pioneers (8-3-2, NCHC 4-3-0-0) defeated the University of Minnesota Duluth Bulldogs (7-7-2, 2-5-0-0), 1-0, at AMSOIL Arena on Friday night. 
The teams traded chances on the power play in the first period, but neither could crack the code. Denver's best opportunity came roughly five (5) minutes into the game when Troy Terry set up Henrik Borgström for a one-timer at the bottom of the right circle. The Pioneers held a 9-8 shot advantage after 20 minutes. 
Logan O'Connor gave the Pioneers the first and only lead of the night at 2:51 of the second period when he won a battle behind the net, centered the puck for Dylan Gambrell then followed up to make it 1-0. Denver's one-goal advantage held through the second intermission. 

The Pioneers went on the power play for the second time in the game at midway point of the third period, but was stymied by the efforts of Bulldogs goalie Hunter Shepard. With 4:43 remaining, Minnesota Duluth went on the power play but was denied by Denver's penalty kill. 
Denver finished 0/3 on the power play and 3/3 on the penalty kill.
