The Denver Pioneers are skating toward elimination in the 2012 NCAA Tournament if they can't figure out the Ferris St. Bulldogs. After two periods of play, the Pioneers find themselves in a 1-0 hole.
Jordie Johnston put the Bulldogs on the board at 4:30 in the second period when he connected on a puck from Garrett Thompson. The Pioneers weren't able to match the Bulldogs goal for goal, but they did pick up their shots on net, tying Ferris State at 18 each.
The Pioneers had several strong chances to score late in the period, but Taylor Nelson has been a brick wall. Jason Zucker tried to stuff the puck past Nelson late in the period, but review confirmed the call that it didn't cross the line.
Both teams continue to struggle on the power play. Ferris State has failed to do anything on its three chances while the Pioneers are 0-for-4.
