#3 Denver hockey (22-8-1, 15-6-0) went 0-5 on the power play while Omaha buried 2 of 5 extra-man opportunities en route to a 5-1 loss at Baxter Arena. Denver trailed 3-0 exiting the first period after allowing two power play goals, a problem for Denver all season long. Ryan Barrow scored Denver’s lone goal early in the third period. Magnus Chrona gave up 4 goals on 22 shots. Omaha scored an empty-net goal to end the game.
Head Coach David Carle stated after the game, “We did not start the game with the competitiveness you need for success….that’s unacceptable this time of year. The effort level needs to be better.”
Denver will try to improve on Friday night’s effort and earn a split tonight at 6:00 pm MT.
