The Quest for the Quint is over. DU’s 11-game winning streak over the Colorado College Tigers is over. The Frozen Faceoff Semifinal losing and scoreless streak – now at two games – unfortunately continue. The #3 Denver Pioneers (30-9-0, 19-5-0 NCHC) traveled to the Frozen Faceoff at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul this weekend with high hopes to add more hardware to their trophy case in a historic season. Instead, the upset-hungry Colorado College Tigers (13-21-3, 6-15-3 NCHC) who were playing to keep their season alive played a perfect defensive game and used a lone power-play goal from Hunter McKown to earn a 1-0 victory and advance to tomorrow night’s NCHC Championship game.

Denver finished 8th as a team in the event and all hopes of a 25th NCAA Team Championship all but evaporated. Continue reading Denver Fades in Final Day of NCAA Skiing Championships
Jack Devine Scores a Haul in 6-2 Win Against Miami
How do you slow down the high-flying, skilled Pioneers (29-8-0, 19-5-0)? The Bloodhawks, er RedHawks, decided to play tough and physical. Clearly, this approach gave Miami (8-23-4, 3-18-3) their best chance to win against a superior team. It wasn’t a dirty style of play by the visitors but a high-octane effort that fell short, 6-2. The Pioneers got excellent play from goaltender Matt Davis and Jack Devine’s four goals, a haul or ‘Texas hat trick’, sealed the first game of the NCHC Quarterfinals for Denver. Continue reading Jack Devine Scores a Haul in 6-2 Win Against Miami
