Pioneers Rebound at Magness to Dominate Tigers 6-1, Earn 1,500th All-Time Victory

This season has been a battle for the #16 Denver Pioneers (4-7-1, 15 pts). Over their first 11 games, 10 at the Pod in Omaha, DU struggled to play consistent hockey and their 3-7-1 record showed that.

Brett Stapley and Reid Irwin each scored a pair of goals, Corbin Kaczperski made 17 saves on 18 shots, and the offense finally tapped into some of its huge potential just a night after a lackluster 4-3 loss to the Tigers in Colorado Springs.
