The University of Denver was eliminated by the Miami RedHawks this evening at the NCAA Regionals in Minneapolis. Miami jumped out to an early lead and never trailed in a 4-2 victory.
Denver seemed out of sync all evening drawing countless offsides penalties, giving up odd man rushes and committing early penalties.
Its a disappointing end to a very successful season that saw DU finish 2nd in the WCHA regular season, finish as runner-up in the WCHA playoffs and draw the overall #3 seed in the NCAA Tournament. Providing the pro defections are kept to a minimum DU should be one of the favorites in the WCHA next season.
