Denver Post: DU Power Play Will Dominate

by Mike Chambers

If a power-play goal is the equivalent of capitalizing on an opportunity, the University of Denver blew too many chances last season.

The Pioneers, who typically build their power-play units by evenly splitting up their top 10 offensive players, scored on just 18.6 percent of their man-advantage opportunities a season ago. They were 22nd nationally.

I hope DU's PP improves dramatically. The talent is certainly there. It's been said before, but DU's biggest problem on the PP in years past always seemed to be too much play on the perimeter or too many guys looking to make the perfect pass or trying for the pretty back door play. Thus unit needs to get dirty. Get some guys in front of the goalie, create screens, and keep shooting the puck.
