Mike Chambers of the Denver Post spoke to coach Gwozdecky after the game on Saturday night. For those of you fluent in "Gwozspeak," this type of cryptic message usually means a teeth-rattling practice on Monday and a lineup shakeup on Thursday night against Ohio State.
"No question, our defensive corps really, really struggled," DU coach George Gwozdecky said. "The second period alone we gave up five 2-on-1s. I feel bad for Adam Murray. You hate to put him in that position, where guys are continually breaking down in front of him."
Gwozdecky has options. Third-year sophomore John Ryder was the seventh defenseman Friday and scratched Saturday. Junior Chris Nutini was scratched both games. The Colorado natives have the immediate ability to plug holes.
"We do have great depth," Gwozdecky said. "No question, you want to be able to throw the younger guys into the fire right away and see what they can do, what they need to work on. We found that out pretty evidently this weekend, and we go back to the drawing board Monday with everybody."
