The Pioneers will open up a crucial two-game series with the Cornell Big Red on Friday night in Denver.
Looking to keep the momentum going following a 6-0 shutout win over Boston University, the Denver Pioneers will hit the ice this weekend for a two-game homestand against the Cornell Big Red.
Denver currently sits at 10-6-3 overall this season, and has racked up 17 points in WCHA play through 14 games. Despite giving up 12 goals over a three-game span before facing Boston U., the Pioneers exploded to connect on six of their 38 shots against an overwhelmed Terrier defense. After squaring off to begin the weekend on Friday night, the two programs will again hit the ice for a rematch on Saturday evening at 7:05 p.m. MT.
Facing yet another difficult road trip after meeting St. Cloud State before the holidays, Colorado College will try to move back to .500 on the season with two games against Nebraska-Omaha this weekend. The Tigers are just 3-5 when playing away from home this year, and are tied for eighth in the WCHA standings with 11 points through 12 league games.
