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.
