The University of Denver Pioneers (17-7-6, 11-5-4-3) defeated the Colorado College Tigers (13-13-4, 7-10-3-2) 1-0 on Saturday at Magness Arena.
Colorado College scored the only goal of the game with 29 seconds remaining in the first period and topped Denver for the first time since Feb. 22, 2014, snapping the Pioneers’ 17-game unbeaten streak in the series.
“It was a factor of us not being hard enough offensively,” Denver coach Jim Montgomery said. “Our effort was great. I thought we skated well, we protected pucks well…but I thought they played with more desperation.”
Colorado College scored the lone goal of the night on the power play as Westin Michaud won a faceoff to leading scorer Nick Halloran, who sent a shot through traffic and past Denver goalie Tanner Jaillet.
The Pioneers responded with a barrage of shots in the second period, outshooting Colorado College 18-7 in the frame. Denver continued its pressure in the third but was unable to avoid being shutout for the first time this season. The Pioneers outshot the Tigers, 40-22.
Jaillet finished with 21 saves. Denver was 0/4 on the power play and 1/3 on the penalty kill.
