The University of Denver won an unbelievable game tonight in Magness Arena. The scoreboard read 3-2, but a disallowed goal by North Dakota that was ruled "kicked in" by the replay officials with 43 seconds left sealed the victory.
All five goals by both teams were scored on the Power Play. Patrick Wiercioch returned to action for DU and he made his limited time on the power play unit pay off handsomely.
DU trailed 2-0 after the first period, but three second period goals in less than eight minutes was the difference.
