Tanner Jaillet made 23 saves en route to the University of Denver Pioneers' (10-3-4, 5-3-2-1) 1-0 victory against the Dartmouth College Big Green (2-8-1, 2-4-1) on Friday at Magness Arena.
"Dartmouth came out a much better-prepared team than we were," Denver coach Jim Montgomery said. "I did like the way we responded in the second period and the way we played in the third period."

Despite the teams combining for three (3) power plays in the first period, neither was able to find the back of the net and went scoreless into the first intermission. Denver returned for the second period with a bevy of shots, outshooting Dartmouth, 14-7, in the period and notching the first goal of the night. Jaakko Heikkinen gave the Pioneers the lead on the power play at 16:00 of the second period after Kohen Olischefski slipped a pass to Colin Staub and Staub fed Heikkinen for a one-timer from the left circle.
The Pioneers continued their pressure in the third period to extend their unbeaten streak to six (6) games. Denver outshot Dartmouth, 32-23. 
Jaillet recorded his second shutout of the season. Denver finished 1/5 on the power play and 3/3 on the penalty kill.
