Denver Secures Road Shutout Against Miami, 4-0

Denver (5-2-0, 1-0-0) traveled to Oxford, Ohio and peppered the  Miami Redhawks with 69 shots, 38 on goal, and Carter Mazur earned a natural hat trick in a dominant 4-0 shutout Friday night.

Denver went up in the first period, 1-0, on a goal by Carter Mazur at 6:25. Denver controlled possession and play in the period.  Mazur scored a power-play goal at 2:53 of the second period as Denver continued to dominate the Redhawks. At 16:05 of the third period, Mazur sealed the Redhawk’s fate with his third goal to make it a natural hat trick, 3-0, Denver. Tristan Broz scored his first goal as a Pioneer and capped a dominant Denver performance at 18:17 of the final period to put an exclamation mark on Denver’s first conference win of the season. Magnus Chrona earned the shutout. An over-matched Miami side spent 21 minutes in the penalty box to 6 for the Pioneers.

Denver returns to Goggin Ice Arena for a rematch tomorrow afternoon at 3:00 pm MT. The game can be seen on NCHC TV – hopefully, the broadcast quality will improve (a single camera and very dark).

  1. This was a very solid NCHC road game from the Pios against a much better Miami team than DU faced last year. The difference was an elite level scoring effort from Mazur, who got good service from Dornbach and Rizzo, and Chrona’s ability to keep the rebounds to a minimum to get the shutout.

    The Pios have some areas to improve, specially a propensity to give up odd-man rushes, and face-offs. Miami had some extended offensive zone time in stretches last night…
