2012 NCAA Hockey scores: Denver, Colorado College struggle in conference play

Douglas Jones-US PRESSWIRE

The Pioneers and Tigers both struggled over the weekend as NCAA hockey takes a good, long break for the holidays.

It wasn't a good weekend for hockey in Colorado, as both Colorado College and Denver struggled in the final weekend of play before the holiday break.

No. 11 Denver opened the weekend series on the road against Bemidji State with a 1-1 tie. Denver failed to take advantage of several chances to build on a 1-0 lead, and Bemidji State tied the game with 8:30 remaining in regulation. The Pioneers are now 0-1-3 in overtime games this season.

Colorado College opened the weekend by taking a 2-0 lead against No. 17 St. Cloud State, but the Huskies then scored four straight goals to secure a big 5-3 comeback victory. The Tigers then slipped to 8-10-2 overall after a 3-1 loss on Saturday night to St. Cloud State, going 1-7-2 since the middle of November.

Denver's winless streak was extended to eight games on Saturday night, falling behind 5-0 against Bemidji State before finally putting one in the net in the 5-1 loss. The loss dropped the Pioneers to 9-6-3 overall and just 0-5-3 in their past ten games. Denver still holds onto the second spot in the WCHA behind St. Cloud State.
