(above) The Goal Czar scored one goal, had five assists and was +6 this weekend
Saturday night marked the long awaited return of injured goaltender Sam Brittain. DU assured that his return would be triumphant with a 6-3 victory over Alaska-Anchorage.

A four goal explosion in the first period paced the Pioneers to another series sweep over the Seawolves. The win moved DU into third place in the WCHA.

DU now begins a grueling ten-game stretch run that includes series against Colorado College, Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota and Nebraska-Omaha.

Another nice win and perhaps some WCHA weekly hardware is in order for Ty Loney. 3 goals, 1 assists & +6 for the weekend. WOW.

DU sweeps this weekend and is on the Pairwise bubble to make the NCAA Tournament (T-14th).

The playoffs begin next week for DU, because of their precarious Pairwise situation.

DU could go 6-4-0 or something similar (5-4-1, 5-3-2) and drop out of the top 15 if Bemidji State falls out of the TUC rankings.

Another strong weekend for DU. The Pios have now won 4 straight league games. That has to be a momentum builder.

Tough tough schedule ahead, but I expect these guys to lay it all on the line for the next 5 weeks of the regular season. There's certainly no room for error. Can't wait for Friday night vs CC.

The close of this regular season should be EPIC.

I expect all "Super" Fans to be in attendance from here on out. No excuses. No cop outs.

DU lax played the US National Team (pros) in Florida today and took them to overtime before losing 16-15. That is frickin' amazing, considering DU was missing one of its top players in Jeremy Noble, and was playing a whole new defensive unit.

The Pios will be good this year.
