Denver 2 - Colorado College 1 OT [Shootout] FINAL

That huge sigh of relief emanating in Colorado Springs last night was Coach Montgomery.  The University of Denver finally didn't lose a game in overtime.

DU scored in the final two minutes of regulation after lifting goalie Sam Britan to knot the score at 1-1.  Joey LaLeggia tallied the lone Pioneer goal.

After suffering four 3-2 overtime losses to start the season, including two last weekend against Nebraska-Omaha, DU managed to "win" the game via a shootout.  Nationally & in regards to the Gold Pan, the game will count as a tie, but Denver picks up an extra point in the NCHC standings.

CC has a player named Sam Rothstein. Last I heard he was running the Tangiers Hotel in Vegas in the movie Casino.
