The University of Denver found themselves in familiar territory after the first period on Friday night at the X-Cel Center.  They were trailing Bemidji State 2-1 and were being outshot and outworked by a considerable margin.

The Pioneers changed the formula slightly when Kyle Ostrow scored the first goal of the game on a power play.  The Beavers quickly responded with two quick goals.
Drew Shore scored a beautiful goal in the second period to tie the game.

The Comback Kids rose to the occasion once again and scored four goals in another dominating third period.  Nick Shore, Jarrod Mermis, The Goal Czar and Kyle Ostrow scored in third.

With the victory, DU remained in 6th place in the Pairwise Rankings that determine the seedings for the NCAA Tournament.
