Denver 2 - North Dakota 2 OT FINAL

The University of Denver and North Dakota played to a 2-2 tie on Friday night in Grand Forks.  Though DU never trailed, North Dakota carried much of the play in the last half of the game.

Late heroics by Jussi Olkinuora, including an incredible soccer style diving save, kept DU from losing the game.

Chris Knowlton & Scott Mayfield scored for the Pioneers.

Jusse totally stoned them. Gwoz said we were skating injured and shorthanded all night.

I watched the UND broadcast on Pioneer Vision. I have to say that another highlight was Katie who conducted an interview between the 2nd and 3rd periods. Give 'em credit, they found the only cute one in the state!

Yeah I'll admit, she was smoking hot.

Interesting note in the Herald...

"DU played with just 10 forwards. Zac Larraza (illness) didn’t make the trip. Jarrod Mermis (coach’s decision) and Larkin Jacobson (suspension) didn’t dress."

So what's up with the Mermis, is he in Gwoz's doghouse again?

Jussi was an absolute wall last night. That one stop was a highlight reel moment. It will be interesting to see who starts in goal tonight.

The lack of shots in the last half of the game is very concerning. Loney is off to somewhat of a slow start. Not having Larazza certainly doesn't help matters.

Damn; It's no fun after these two teams tie.... they can't say we suck, we can't say they suck. They weren't better than us, we weren't better than them. Fans from each side are probably anxious to throw jabs and trash talk....but they got nothing. Hold those thoughts people! Maybe tonight you can let it rip lol

Not too much smack from our tundra loving friends. I'm guessing they don't like having to use their aliases to post here. Leaves a trail for their parole officers. We were lucky to get out of there with a tie last night. Jussi really did save. Gotta get the banged up bodies out there tonight and buckle up our chin straps.

One period left in the 2nd game. The 5 min major on UND was huge with DU coming back to make it 4-3 going into the 3rd. Pios have to get onto their game or they're gonna give this one up...UND is playing good hockey and coming on strong as we knew they would, can and will...these are 2 of the best teams in the country...would we expect anything different...GO DU!!!!

LOSERS!

DU is still in first place and you still live in North Dakota.

Advantage US!!!

Mike Lee said...

Heard that one before. You're getting stale.

I'd rather be in first place than not be in first place if that is what you are asking. :-)
