College Hockey News featured the University of Denver as their Team of the Week. Coach Jim Montgomery acknowledged that the holiday break gave the team a chance to get reinvigorated and refocused – both coaches and players.
In addition to improved goaltending, Montgomery focused on the team’s priorities going forward: “I would say there’s three areas. It’s our power play, number one,” said Montgomery, in reference to a power play unit that is 11-for-76 this season, ranking 44th in the country. “Second is scoring 5-on-5 goals, and third is breaking out of our end clean.”
