Last night, the #2 University of Denver Pioneers went into the World Arena and skated the Colorado College Tigers out of the building with a 5-1 victory. It was Denver’s 12th straight victory over their in-state rival and the victory vaulted them over UMD and into first place in the NCHC. On top of it all, the win was Denver’s 20th of the year, which made it 16 straight seasons with at least 20 wins (the Tenzer Streak).
DU head coach Jim Montgomery was pleased with his team’s effort throughout the weekend as they clinched their third straight season sweep of the Kittens.
