DU 5 - Alabama Huntsville 2 FINAL

The University of Denver bounced back from a humiliating defeat on Friday night with a resounding 5-2 victory at Magness Arena.   DU controlled the balance of play and the Shore brothers scored two quick goals in the first period.

Good we stopped the bleeding but the damage has already been done. Unless we go on some crazy run, it's going to be hard to get back into the tournament through wins and losses. Otherwise we'll have to try and win the Final Five.

Murray played and won. I have two words for all the haters...

Good news from Minneapolis. The young hockey player was able to move his arms which was not expected. http://kstp.com/news/stories/S2443318.shtml?cat=1

Another injury to a teen hockey player, Jenna Privett. She was taken to the same hospital, Hennepin County. She had suffered a spinal cord injury playing softball and was just allowed to play hockey in December. Not supposed to be any checking in girls hockey.

There are no haters here, just one troll of limited vocabulary, intellect and originality.

Anyway, they were better tonight. It remains to be seen whether that will translate into lots of conference wins coming down the stretch. Yes, it was good to see Adam back, and he played well. We're going to need him and all hands to make the kind of run needed to overcome Friday's loss.

DU averted what would have been a complete disaster of a weekend by getting the W. The Pios were much better last night in all phases. Nice to see Mayfield get another goal-- I think he's been solid all year. And I'm glad Murray was back on the ice. Who knows how things will play out with Brittain--Murray could end up being a key player down the stretch.

I don't know of anybody who's anti Adam Murray. The fact remains he hasn't been a great goalie here. His play proves that. And he's had some injuries to deal with. Put those together and you have a guy who's had trouble gaining traction at the NCAA level. Having said that, if he's the guy between the pipes, we support him.

bigbossman.....who are the Murray haters? Please enlighten us.....we'd love to know. Otherwise, your 3rd grade comments are a bore.

I want to thank everyone that stopped by last night at the game to sign the banner for Jabby. The front side is completely full, what a great example of Pioneer spirit. In addition, we have signature from the players and Gwoz. I will be sending the banner overnight to Jabby's hospital.

Please keep this young man in your prayers.

Josey,

Really? I mean, come on.... You are one of the haters. Below is a post you made on Friday.

Isn't it safe to say Murray's career at DU is over? I mean, come on.....he shouldn't even be on the radar anymore.

Smoke a little hockey player pipe and suddenly you're the "Big Boss Man?" You're a child. You claim to be a DU fan, yet spend most of your time judging other DU fans. Please, do us a favor and set up housekeeping with your favorite CC poster and leave us "inauthentic" DU fans alone.

Josey Wales said...

bigbossman....let me lay this out for you, since you appear to be one of these schmucks who thinks everyone deserves a ribbon for participating......

I like Murray. I'm sure he's a super kid. If he's out there on the ice I will sure as hell be rooting for him. Murray is a junior at DU. His freshman year, backing up Chevy, he was 3-4-1 with an .874 SV and 3.81 GAA. Last year, backing up Brittain, he was 6-3 with an .879 SV and 3.46 GAA. This year he is 6-2-1 with a .904 SV and 3.24 GAA. He's had injuries. He has never been good enough to be or remain the starter. Olkinoura has been better this year. Brittain, who made a bunch of all-rookie teams last year and was one of the best goalies in the nation, is coming back. So if I don't think Murray deserves to be playing over those other two I'm a hater eh?? Please explain that to me, homeboy. My hockey sense is obviously lacking compared to yours.

Having two words does not count as an explanation.

The troll is a girl, posting as a boy. That is the only way to explain his crush on these DU players. Can't bear to hear us criticize the objects of his affection. Kinda sweet, really.

Nice job on the win. But too many learning experiences are happening too late in the season. Let's hope the return of Ryder, Bennett, Zucker and Ryder will turn this team around.

Imaws Kcup said...

After a hit from Ryder, opposing players do tend to see doubles, so I assume it would be appropriate to mention his name twice in the same paragraph ;-)

anonevermore said...

Ha ha, good point. Opposing teams wouldn't even take the ice if there were two Ryders out there.

Jordan said...

First time since 2006 DU drops out of the top 15.

Twister said...

I don't think anyone thought the Pios would be stuck this low in the rankings as we approach mid January. But that's where we are. It's been a strange year indeed for this DU team. Some great wins (BC, CC, AFA), some bad losses (UAH, Tech, BSU), lots of injuries to key players, inconsistency etc.

The schedule the rest of the way is tough, but maybe that, along with these guys getting healthy, will provide a spark.

mexico said...

I hope you all realize that BBM did not start as a member of my imagination. I have made several posts as him here ever since DG put down the gauntlet. That was mostly just so that I could try on another pair of troll shoes. He is more than welcome to beat me down and take his identity back at any time. COLD HARD FACT - he is part of the Pio Masturbation Nation. I have two words for the PMN...

old pio said...

A phrase you doubtless learned shaking your money maker down on lower Colfax. Wipe the semen off your chin, sweety.

bigbossman said...

No doubt Old P. Words to live by. Thanks for the advice and continued support. I'll never be able to blow 10 guys in a night like when you and SUX14er's ruled the land of the drag queens...

old pio said...

Isn't there some way we can get this cowardly asshole banned? I mean, he's admitted to posting under at least two names, one of which is not his. Isn't that probable cause? No comments are needed on the suprme childishness of this professional troll.

If it's possible, let's take out the garbage here.

bigbossman said...

So does that mean that you are denying your actions Old P?

mexico said...

I'm not a coward and I'm not hiding at all. Your friend posted my ugly mug on USCHO. I'm glad that you finally think I'm a pro. That means a lot to me dad...

Josey Wales said...

mexico......go away, dude. Seriously. Go away. Your postings are beyond moronic.

You appear to have mental health issues Old Pio.
