The University of Denver hockey team fell behind Boston University 1-0 on Saturday night after one period. But it was a disastrous second period that cost them the game.
Two of BU's early second period goals were shorthanded on the same power play.
Luke "Goal Czar" Salazar started a belated DU comeback in the third period. John Lee followed that up with a goal from the blueline to cut the lead in half.
Drew Shore pulled the Pioneers within one with two and half minutes left after Gwozdecky pulled Adam Murray to skate 6 on 5. DU continued to pressure the BU goalie but couldn't get the tying goal in. A controversial holding call against Beau Bennett with 28 seconds to play sealed DU's fate.
