DU 2 WI 2 Final OT

DU steals a point from Wisconsin tonight by storming back from a 2-0 deficit in the 3rd period. Kyle Ostrow got both DU goals at the 8:18 and 15:16 marks of the 3rd period. Jesse Martin got the assist on the first goal and Anthony Maiani and David Makowski got the assists on the 2nd goal. Neither team could score in the overtime.

Wisconsin freshman Mark Zengerle put the Badgers up 1-0 at 4:17 in the 1st period when DU turned the puck over and he fired it past Sam Brittain. The Badgers built a 2-0 lead at the 8:17 mark of the 2nd period on another DU turnover. Sean Dolan got the goal with assists to Ryan Little and Patrick Johnson.

Scott Gudmanson had an outstanding game in net for the Badgers with 35 saves. DU goalie Sam Brittain also had a solid game in goal as he stopped 21 pucks for DU. Neither team had a power play goal tonight.

It was great to see a senior step up when the team needed a savior. Gwoz gave Ostrow/Maiani/Martin lots of ice time in the third period. Very good coaching... You have to lean on the seniors when a game seems lost.

Ostrow played some his best hockey to pick up the team in the third. Great to see the seniors play like seniors and get themselves on the scoresheet.

This DU team is a hard-working bunch, and they were the better team tonight - they gave UW a couple of gift-wrapped goals on turnovers from Lee and Phillips, but the Pios carried much of the play and outshot UW badly.

I will always take 3 points in any WCHA series.

Eaves looked like a sad camper when he left the ice--head down after a spanking in the third.

Anybody think Martin played a bad game? personally every time i saw him on the ice. he just seemed behind the play or gassed. is he hurt or starting the season on a bad note. Aside from that Great effort in the 3rd by the Pios. a great come from behind effort to salvage a tie and 3pts on the weekend. it will be interesting to see how the team performs in a hostile environment.

Martin looked hurt to me - almost like he was playing on one leg and just gutting it out. We'll have to see, but he looked hampered for sure.

DU was already in a very hostile environment in Vermont and did well. The Sioux are better than UVM, but DU will give the Sioux a battle. Any points DU gets there are a bonus.

I don't think there is any question Martin is hurting -- he is laboring out there. I've always admired the way he plays but it is not a good sign when Ryder is even more of a speed threat than Martin.

My star of the game yesterday is John Lee. He played terrific. As for next weekend..... could be the defining moment in Sam Brittain's college career (no pressure, Bud!). How pissed off do you think the Sue are right now - and will still be next Friday night? I mean - you're got thier home opener, against DU of all teams, plus if you factor in that they just got swept back east by the Blackbears, Hackstol was going apeshit over bad ref calls in Maine, Halloween, sold out arena....hold on to your hats, folks!

Who made that lame pass in front of our own net that resulted in the first goal?

Games on both nights will be televised nationally by Fox College Sports on FCS Central. DU is picking up that feed and showing it on Pioneer Vision if you don't get that channel.

John Lee coughed up the first turnover that landed on Zengerle;s tape and was fired past Brittain for the first UW goal.

Paul Phillips' turnover at the blue line caused the second UW goal.
