WATCH: Jim Montgomery talks “confusing” loss to Dartmouth, questions team leadership

Last night, the #2 University of Denver Pioneers were shocked by the Dartmouth Big Green as they fell 5-4 to the #59 team in the PairWise Rankings. It was an ugly effort from the Pios after the first period as they blew another three-goal lead. In a vacuum, the loss projects to hurt the Pioneers at the end of February and into March, but the projections aside, the loss seems to be symptomatic of a larger issue for the Pioneers and head coach Jim Montgomery seems worried.

After the game, Montgomery was disappointed and at a loss for words. He wasn’t sure what to make of it and it’s safe to say he’s concerned about the second half of the season. Watch his postgame media scrum below:
