The top-ranked University of Denver Pioneers took Game One of the NCHC Tournament first round best-of-three series from the Colorado College Tigers last night with a 4-1 win. They had to overcome a slow, disjointed first period to do it, but they did what the had to do with a strong second period performance.
DU head coach Jim Montgomery was pleased with his team’s 60-minute effort and is looking for more of the same tonight in Game Two.
In his postgame scrum, Montgomery talked at length about what he liked to see from his team, the chippiness toward the end of the game last night, and the dominant 3-point performance from American Hero Troy Terry. Watch below:
