The #12 Denver Pioneers (10-4-0, 4-2-0, 12 pts) have the nation’s best offense, in case you didn’t read last night’s recap of the 6-2 win. Tonight, in their fourth game against the Arizona State Sun Devils (7-9-0), the Pios once again increased their goals per game average – 4.42 coming into the weekend – to 4.71 (crazy commenters, check my math). Brett Stapley added two more points to a weekend where he already recorded a hat trick, Sean Behrens scored his first career goal, and the Pios’ power play scored four (yes, four!) goals, including two from freshman Massimo Rizzo, in six tries. For the second night in a row, DU used the third period to step on ASU’s throats and put the game out of reach. Denver outscored Arizona State 13-3 this weekend and won all four games against the Sun Devils by a combined 25-9 score (again, check my math).
We will have a full weekend recap tomorrow morning with a more in-depth analysis of both games.
