2012 NCAA Hockey scores: Denver splits series with North Dakota

Denver faced a two-game series with No. 6 North Dakota this past weekend. How did the Pioneers fare?

The Denver Pioneers split their weekend series with No. 6 ranked North Dakota, winning a close-fought 5-4 matchup on Friday night and following up that performance with a crushing 6-1 defeat at home. After just cracking the top 10 rankings this past week, Denver will likely stay right around No. 10 overall in the nation after pulling out one victory against one of the hottest team's in college hockey.

Five different Pioneers scored in Friday's win, with nine players registering at least one point. It was the 12th game this season Denver scored five or more goals.

Ty Loney put the Pioneers on the board first in the second game of the series, only to watch the Fighting Sioux score six unanswered goals in the rout.

Colorado College split its series with No. 7 St. Cloud State, winning 4-3 on Friday and dropping Saturday's game 5-2. Continuing the regional trend, Air Force also split its series with RIT. The Falcons managed a 5-3 victory in the first matchup, but fell 2-1 on Saturday night.
