Denver Post: Chevy Is On Record Pace

(above) Chevy's quick start is catching media attention

by Mike Chambers
Three of the University of Denver's greatest goalies played for the Pioneers this decade. However, the guy who will complete the fabulous 10-year stretch might ultimately be considered the best of the best.

Junior Marc Cheverie, who leads the NCAA in every major statistical goaltending category, is on pace to rewrite the program's single-season and career goals-against average and save-percentage records.

Cheverie's 1.19 GAA this season has lowered his career number to 2.15, ahead of the record of 2.20 shared by Wade Dubielewicz (1999-2003) and George Kirkwood (1959-61). On the strength of his .961 save percentage this season, Cheverie has a career percentage of .927, higher than Dubielewicz's record of .923. (read rest of article)

I don't know about y'all; but games directly-following big games make me nervous. DU better not relax going into the post-finals'/Thanksgiving weekend. The Huskies are no slouch. Let's see Marc & Adam each get a shutout

You are right about that. This is a classic "trap weekend."

However a week of practice with no classes or on campus distractions should be a big help.

Over the last 5-8 years DU has a pretty good record over the Winter Break.

This Denver Post issue also noted that this is probably Chevy's last year at DU. Say it ain't so. I can imagine that the prospect of suffering a huge injury would affect his decision, but it's not as if Richard Baumann, Matt Zaba, Adam Berkhoel, Peter Mannino, etc are lighting up the NHL. STAY CHEVY!!
