Coach Gwozdecky pulled the old "Bench Four Starters To Lull The Other Team To Sleep" Trick tonight in Magness Arena. Goaltender Marc Cheverie recorded his first career shutout as DU rolled to an improbable 4-0 victory over the #1 ranked Minnesota Gophers.
“We felt we had to make some changes, and those changes turned out to be very effective. The players we inserted into the lineup (Cunningham, Marcuzzi, Vossberg) really brought us some energy and enthusiasm, especially in the locker room. Obviously, Brandon Vossberg scored a big short-handed goal for us. They really were the glue, I thought, for our team tonight,” Gwozdecky said.
