The #12 Denver Pioneers (9-4-0, 4-2-0, 12 pts) came into the night with the country’s best offense, averaging 4.42 goals per game. Thanks to a 6-2 domination at Arizona State (7-8-0) for the Pios’ first out of state victory of the season, that average is going to go up. Brett Stapley netted a hat trick, Jack Devine scored his first career NCAA goal amidst DU’s third-period four-goal onslaught, and the Pios survived a second period with 36 combined penalty minutes as they won their third straight against ASU. They’ve now scored 18 goals in their three games against the Sun Devils.
We will have a full recap of this game in our Denver Hockey Road Trip Recap on Sunday morning.

Don’t forget that DU used to play Northern Arizona.
W 9 – 5 at Northern Arizona in December 1982, per DU website.
I was at that game in the Walkup Skydome in Flagstaff, Ariz. It’s a giant wooden dome with about 10,000 seats that houses the NAU football team in fall, and then hoops and (formerly) hockey in a side by side configuration. NAU did not have varsity hockey very long…
DU beat AFA down south…pretty sure that was a road win…
