The No. 14 Denver Pioneers (10-6-3) snapped an eight-game winless streak with an impressive 6-0 shutout of No. 6 Boston University (10-6-0) on Saturday night at Magness Arena in the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Museum Face-off Classic. It was Denver's first win since Nov. 17. The club has gone 0-5-3 over their last eight contests, failing to score more than two goals in an game.
Saturday night, the Pioneers sticks came alive, as Denver scored three first-period goals, including two in the span of nine seconds. Six different players scored for the Pioneers, as the team recorded at least five goals in a game for the eighth time this season.
Boston University's shutout was the first for the Terriers in 125 games, a streak that had led the nation.
The two teams combined for 29 penalties and 91 penalty minutes, as well as three ejections.
Denver will next take the ice on Friday as it begins a two-game series against Cornell.
