The Denver Pioneers 2012 NCAA Hockey Tournament session is underway on Friday afternoon, but they have plenty of work ahead if they want to defeat the Ferris St. Bulldogs. The Pioneers got off to a slow start by having a tough time shooting the puck. The Bulldogs early on had an 11-2 shot advantage, but by the time the buzzer went off the Pioneers were down in the shot column by just three, 11-8.
Sam Brittain has started in net for the Pioneers while Jason Zucker, who was questionable for the game, has been on the ice for the team. Taylor Nelson has made all eight saves for the Bulldogs.
Ferris State is 0-for-1 on the power play, but the Pioneers were unable to take advantage of their two man-up situations, either. Those penalties were called for hooking and interference (twice).
