Anything that could go wrong went wrong for the #6 Denver Pioneers against the St. Cloud State Huskies on Friday night in St. Cloud, Minnesota as they fell 6-1. It was a fairly even game through the first period and into the early part of the second…until it wasn’t. The Huskies scored often and the Pioneers simply didn’t have an answer for the onslaught.
It seemed the Pioneers had turned a corner against Miami, scoring 14 goals last weekend en route to a dominant sweep. But DU was issued a cold dose of reality by the streaking Huskies who added onto an impressive streak that includes taking five of six points from top-ranked North Dakota last weekend.
This was the exact opposite of what Denver was hoping to achieve tonight with home ice in the first round of the NCHC Tournament on the line. Now, all they can do is shake this one off and come out and play for the split tomorrow and minimize the effects of the loss.
We will have a more in-depth recap in our Sunday weekend on review. But in the meantime, share your thoughts and vent your frustrations below. Shake this off and get ready for tomorrow.
