(above) DU's Jason Zucker scores in the first period Friday night against UAA

The University of Denver moved into a second place tie in the WCHA standings with a 5-3 victory over the University of Alaska Anchorage on Friday night.

DU jumped off to a 2-0 first period lead. UAA tied the score at 2-2 with a strong second period.

Chris Knowlton scored his first goal of the season in the third period. It was a big goal leveling the game at 3-3. From that point on DU controlled the game and the inevitable game winner was a beautiful tape to tape power play goal by Jason Zucker from John Lee and Nick Shore.

Adam Murray got the victory in the nets for DU.

Glad to help out.

Nice win for DU. Zucker & Shore where clearly the best players on the ice all night. They should be huge for Team USA.

DU started well, then took the middle of the game off, and woke up later in the third to take over the game with 12 minutes left and outskill UAA for the win.

Adam Murray played okay, and exorcised his Anchorage demons.

Jay Z is worth the price of admission just to watch the kid wriggle into space, and then explode on goal. What a player he is...

After Zucker scored the game winner he came back to Murray and they did a cool little "low five" celebration.

I'll post the link in the top story tonight as well.

You go to the link. Enter your zip code and then press the game link.

Quality was so-so but it got better as the game went along.
