Denver Swept by St. Cloud After 6-2 Loss    

Cache

Following last night’s 5-2 loss the Pioneer’s were seeking a much needed win before taking a few weeks off for winter break, but were unfortunate in doing so. Denver fell 6-2 to the St. Cloud State Huskies, after making changes in an attempt to recapture the Denver-style level of hockey this team is capable of performing at.

Denver’s alterations began with scratching last night’s forwards Emil Romig and Logan O’Connor, defenseman Matt VanVoorhis, and goalie Tanner Jaillet with Colin Staub, Rudy Junda, Brad Hawkinson, and Evan Cowley. The starting offensive line we’ve seen most of this year consisting of; Trevor Moore, Dylan Gambrell, and Danton Heinen was changed to Heinen, Quentin Shore, and Troy Terry who provided the Pios with the most threats in tonight’s game. 

The adjustments worked well for the Pios during the first period, as Denver came out noticeably tenacious and energetic. While the Huskies were the first to light the lamp 3:38 on a poorly defended goal, Denver held their ground and managed to get one of their own off a power play. Senior assistant captain, Gabe Levin netted his third of the year in the 15th minute off of a rebound from Colorado Avalanche prospect, Will Butcher. “[I] thought [they] dominated the game the first five minutes and [I] thought [we] carried the last 15 of the first period,” added Coach Montgomery in a post-game interview. Denver outshot the Huskies 10-8 and saw great chances, many of which were created from the dynamic Henien, Shore, and Terry line who’s chemistry was undeniable. 

The second period was troublesome, to say the least, for Denver. 18 seconds into the period, St. Cloud State took the lead when center, Kalle Kossila, found the back of the net to tally his first of three goals by the end of the night. Less than one minute later the Huskies buried their third goal from senior left winger, Joey Benik, marking his second of the match. 

Denver reacted by substituting Jaillet for Cowley, who had no such luck as Kossila converted his second after firing a shot past Jaillet, who Coach Montgomery says got hung out to dry tonight. The Pios weren’t nearly as aggressive nor creative with the puck during the second as they were in the first. The Huskies outshout Denver 16-7, a statistic that greatly reflected the attitude and intensity of play from each team during the middle frame.  

The Huskies extended their lead 5-1 off a one-timer in front of the net scored by Daniel Tedesco 3:21 into the third period. During the media timeout Greg Ogard replaced Jaillet in net for the Pios. Senior captain, Grant Arnold was sent to the penalty box for cross-checking, the Huskies managed to kill the penalty. However, when Arnold returned to the ice he grabbed a loose puck Moore had been battling to get and Arnold sniped in his third of the year in the 8th minute to decrease the visitor’s lead. 

A few minutes later, Kossila and Mikey Eyssimont broke down Denver’s defense with their quick puck passing to score the Huskies’ 6th and final point of the night, as well as Kossila’s third goal. Trailing by four goals, Denver continued to play with intensity and outshot the Huskies 13-6 by the end of the third frame. The loss was not ideal in any fashion, but Coach Montgomery says, “[I] thought [we] played much better tonight than last night against [them] for the full 60 minutes.” 

Denver is scheduled for a three-week break before returning to Magness to face Notre Dame, needless to say, the Pios have a lot to work on; leadership-wise, re-gaining confidence in usual scorers Henien and Moore, and returning to the level of play the team is capable of performing at. Montgomery comments, “The only thing [I] know from [my] pro-career is the way [you] get out of this as a player is [you] go back to work, start putting back together what your team identity is.” 

There are still a lot of positives to take away, even from a 6-2 loss- especially recognizing the youth within the team and how much the freshman class has stepped up throughout this season so far in hopes to come back from this four-game losing streak. 

Denver returns to Magness Friday, Jan. 1 against Notre Dame, puck drop is at 7:36 p.m. 

Notes 

Going forward Coach Montgomery is not anticipating on continuing to share time in net; Denver has been outscored 20-5 over the past two weekends; Trevor Moore’s assist continued his streak of earning at least one point in every collegiate game he’s played against the Huskies; Will Butcher received his 10th assist tonight (he leads the team), Tanner Jaillet led the three goaltenders in saves with 13, Freshman defenseman Blake Hillman didn’t return the third period due to a tweaked hip-flexor injury - but is expected to be alright. 

          

Look to the "C" to End the Skid   

Cache   


As the Pioneers hit the 3-week hockey holiday break, a sense of gloom has settled over the program. The Pioneers are 7-7-2, hardly a disaster, but certainly not up to the program's expectations heading into the season. There are many different thoughts on what has caused the current 0-4 stretch where the Pioneers were outscored an astounding 20-5.


Many look to the head coach or DU's gifted front line for answers. Others look at goaltending. Some see DU as an undersized squad overmatched by bigger teams.

The answer might just rest with the alphabet - namely the letter "C". Senior forward Grant Arnold wears this important letter for the Pioneers. While in other sports, captains are largely symbolic and often rotated, a hockey captain holds this role for an entire season. According to USA Hockey Magazine, The ABC's of Wearing the C, "The team captain is picked for leadership, whether it is leading by example or being vocal and letting players know their roles in getting the team to succeed. And many coaches agree that the perfect captain gives their team, in essence, an extra coach in the locker room and on the ice."

According to Dave Starman, an NHL scout and hockey analyst, “You’re (head coach) looking for someone who, when you walk out of the dressing room, is going to facilitate your message and who is going to be respected enough by the guys in that room to adhere to it,” 


Contrary to other sports, the captain isn’t always the best player on a team. There are instances when the captain might even be one of the least talented players on the club. Regardless of their skill set, every captain has a few specific personal qualities – confidence, strength of character, and the ability to speak up, among others. Captains are not selected because they are the star of the team - they are chosen for their leadership skills. For example, in his first three years at DU, Arnold only averaged 2.6 goals per season with and 5.3 assists. While those numbers are relatively pedestrian, Arnold was chosen because he has what it takes to wear the prestigious "C" on his sweater.

Interestingly, one of the most important things about earning the honor of captain is not "running" for the "C". In hockey culture, leaders don’t broadcast to their teammates and coaches how much they want to be captain, and certainly don’t do things just to be considered for the position. So if a player is campaigning to earn the “C,” he/she probably doesn't deserve the distinction.

At the conclusion of the recently completed St. Cloud series, radio announcer Jay Stickney suggested a three weak 'break' would be good for the Pioneers. Coach Montgomery quickly responded that family time is important but players must be responsible for following their training schedules, adhering to dietary guidelines and getting sleep. Behind the scenes, expect Arnold to be checking in with his teammates during the break to make sure they adhere to Montgomery's instructions.

Other tools cited in How to be a Good Hockey Captain, may be employed by Arnold as well. These 'tools' include calling a 'players only' meeting, calling out teammates (1-on-1, not publicly), lead by example, stick up for teammates on the ice, and be a confidante to players on and off the ice.

When facing tough times, NHL all-star Mark Messier said, "As a captain, I think it’s important that the players really know who you are, and what you stand for, what your beliefs are, and to be consistent in those if things are going good or things are going bad."

So, if the Pios are going to emerge from the holiday break and start winning again, it will likely be the leadership of Arnold that is a major reason for it. The Pioneers have a great leader in Grand Arnold and fans should have every confidence in him to help lead this team back to where it belongs, in the win column.

          

Pioneers' Nightmare Stretch Continues   

Cache

Tonight, the Denver Pioneers (7-6-2) returned home looking to maintain their unbeaten home record but ended up losing their third straight game, 5-2 at the hands of the St. Cloud State Huskies (13-4-0). The Huskies scored the last five goals of the game and perpetuated the feeling of helplessness around DU.

The Pioneers got out to a fast start in the first period as they outshot SCSU 8-4. The Pioneers came out looking determined to discard the bad feelings from a week ago in North Dakota. They were skating hard, playing smart, and St. Cloud didn't have an answer for the Pioneers' attack. At the 14:01 mark of the 1st period, Dylan Gambrell found the back of the net and knocked Lindgren's water bottle off of the net to give the Pioneers the 1-0 lead.

Heading into the first break, it felt like the Pios had shaken off whatever had plagued them in Grand Forks the weekend before and were well on their way to coasting to a victory over the #6 team in the country.

Denver continued to play good hockey to start the second period and got on the board again early when Troy Terry buried his own rebound at the 2:31 mark. All of a sudden, with a 2-0 lead, Denver was dominating play and the Huskies were on their heels. "Right up until our first power play (8:14 of the 2nd), I thought we were playing great Denver hockey," DU Coach Jim Montgomery said.

Everything changed as soon as SCSU's Will Borgen stepped out of the penalty box after the Huskies killed off their first penalty. The Pioneers couldn't generate a shot on the power play and SCSU grabbed the momentum and never let go.

"Our power play has been very inept this year," Montgomery said. "That's my responsibility."

On the power play, Denver was often trying to make the "pretty play" instead of the smart play. They'd pass the puck to a teammate instead of taking an open shot and eventually, the Huskies were able to continually take the puck and clear the zone. That has been the story of the power play unit all year and that's the reason why DU has only converted 13.79% of their power play chances.

Just about a minute after the Huskies killed off their first power play, Adam Plant was called for hooking and the Pioneers' 85% PK unit was called on to hold the 2 goal lead. With just 9 seconds left on the power play, Blake Winiecki beat Tanner Jaillet on an unfortunate play in the crease to cut the lead to 1.

Just 4 minutes later, Kalle Kossila was the beneficiary of a lucky bounce to beat Jaillet and the Huskies were off and running. At the second intermission, the score was tied at 2, but it felt like SCSU should have been up by 2 after they outshot DU 15-6 in the period.

The third period started well for the Pios as they began to pressure the Huskies defense, but were unable to put the puck past Lindgren. Even on a 2 on 0 chance, the Pios couldn't find the back of the net thanks to a sprawling save by Lindgren. There were multiple times when DU had the Huskies' goalie beat, but somehow he made a miraculous save.

At the 14:14 mark of the 3rd period, Joey Benik beat Jaillet off the post to give the Huskies their first lead of the night. Then, just 40 seconds later, Kossila scored his 2nd goal of the night after he stickhandled through three DU defenders. At that point, even though there was still more than 5 minutes left in the game, DU seemed to quit. They seemed disinterested in playing hockey.

About a minute later, David Morley put the nail in the coffin when he beat Jaillet down low to clinch the 5-2 victory. Mercifully, a little over four minutes after that, the final buzzer came and the game was over.

"St. Cloud showed why they're the #6 team in the nation," Montgomery said. "Those three goals they had in the third period were beautiful goals. If you have breakdowns in your defensive zone, they expose it."

Tomorrow night, the Pioneers will look to bounce back and earn a victory heading into the three week holiday break. Tomorrow is about as important a game as DU will have this year. "[Tomorrow] is very important, especially for the psyche of the team," Montgomery explained. A victory tomorrow would do a lot towards moving things back in the right direction for the Pioneers.

In short, the DU Pioneers are playing bad hockey right now. There is no magic button Coach Monty can push to make things better. The Pios have laid 3 straight eggs now and the schedule doesn't get any easier from here on out. Denver needs to turn this thing around quickly if they are going to even come close to attaining their goal of making it to the Frozen Four this year.

The season is certainly far from over and there is plenty of time for the Pios to turn this thing around and get back to their winning ways, but the longer they wait, the further down the standings they'll slide. This is the first adversity the Pioneers have faced this year. How they respond tomorrow will tell fans a lot about what this team is made of.

Notes

DU was outshot 33-19 on the night and 29-11 in the 2nd and 3rd periods; There were only 3 penalties called all night; Danton Heinen went pointless again; Jarid Lukosivicius picked up his 2nd assist on the year on Terry's goal; Jaillet made 28 saves for a .848 SV %; With his goal in the 3rd Period, Husky David Morley scored his 100th point of his career; Avs GM Joe Sakic was in attendance to watch Avs prospects Will Butcher (DU) and Ben Storm (SCSU).

Top-Tier Locker Room Needed for Premier Hockey Program   

Cache

While DU fans are rightfully proud of Magness Arena, the reality is that some of DU's facilities haven fallen behind peers. Many of the locker rooms at Ritchie Center were redone with insurance monies as a result of flooding over the summer. Others, such as men's lacrosse, were expanded to accommodate the basic needs of a growing program that weren't being met with the older facilities.

In the NCHC, the Ralph Engelstad Arena in Grand Forks, North Dakota is NHL-quality all around. From the locker rooms to the stadium itself, "The Ralph" is second to none in NCAA hockey. Omaha just built a new multi-sport stadium in Baxter Arena which opened this season, Miami (OH) recently spent 3.5 million dollars on a hockey locker room upgrade. St. Cloud recently spent 30 million on facilities, including a new locker room. UMD just moved into a new rink two years ago with new facilities. CC & Western Michigan, NCHC basement-dwellers, have the oldest and least appealing facilities.

While, we're not advocating the construction of a brand new arena, Magness is now 16 years old, which is extremely old in the modern athletics era. The hockey locker room has endured years of wear and tear without major modifications or upgrades in those 16 years. Overall, the footprint and locker room foundation is good but it needs to be expanded. Many recruits and current players see the locker room as a face of a hockey program. Recruits also look for practical benefits of a modern facility - shower facilities, space, dressing areas, lighting, branding and meeting space. Players spend a great deal of time in this area getting ready for games and practices and unwinding after games and practices. This team space is important to both current players and potential recruits.

In a recent letter, Coach Montgomery appealed to alumni and season ticket holders, citing a critical need to upgrade the locker room to maintain DU's position as a national hockey power. Internally, there has been ongoing conversation about funding a remodeled locker room facility even since the George Gwozdecky era.

The fundraising target for the project is $2.0 million dollars and DU is hoping to break ground in the spring. While this project will require significant funding, a premier program must have premier facilities to compete. Historically, DU has avoided undertaking capital improvements without cash-in-hand so this is going to require participation and wide giving, of both large and small amounts, over a short period of time to get this done.

LetsGoDU strongly endorses this project and will keep readers up-to-date on progress and provide more details as they become available.

Editor's Note: As a smaller school by Division I standards, DU has been fairly insulated in recent years from the proliferation of these top-tier athletics facilities. That is simply not the case anymore. DU must keep up with the Division I "arms race" to continue as a national power in more than just lacrosse and skiing.

The University of Colorado-Boulder, a school that is much more seriously affected by the arms race, resisted joining this movement as long as they possibly could. They suffered as a result as their football program has not been relevant in over a decade. It is becoming increasingly clear that the length of irrelevance is a direct result of poor facilities. Finally, this year, the Buffaloes finished their $142 million "Champions Center" and the future seems to be looking better for that program.

The University of Denver has no intention of letting something like that happen to the hockey program. DU Hockey is to college hockey as Duke basketball is to college basketball. A good DU hockey program is good for the sport. With more advanced facilities in Magness Arena, DU will have the tools to compete at a high level for the foreseeable future. We encourage all members of the DU community to strongly consider donating to this project. It will benefit all stakeholders involved with the athletics program. That's a guarantee.

A Brief Explanation of a Blind Spot Monitor   

Cache   

Here at Jack Ingram Volvo Cars in Montgomery, AL, our car experts have a goal to help our customers stay informed about the latest technologies available with our vehicles. Many newer vehicles are equipped with a blind spot monitoring system, but what does this feature do? Let's find out below.

A blind spot monitor can reduce the risk of lane-change collisions by alerting you when a vehicle moves into your blind spot zones. Blind spot monitors typically use technologies that include radars, sensors, and cameras, and some safety packages that are available with certain vehicles include a blind spot monitor.

Blind spot monitors can significantly enhance safety. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found that driver-assist features, which include blind spot monitors and lane keeping systems, can reduce fatalities and injuries caused by lane drifting, and blind spot monitors may reduce lane-change collisions by 11 percent and lane-change collision injuries by 21 percent.

People who prefer compact vehicles but do not want to sacrifice luxury choose to own an S60. The vehicle is loaded with luxurious amenities. The S60 is also one of the safest vehicles on the market. We have the newest models in our Jack Ingram Volvo Cars inventory. Visit our showroom and see. Schedule a test drive.

Standard safety systems include blind-spot monitoring. When traveling on the highway, a vehicle may veer into the S60's blind spot. Should the driver decide to change lanes unaware of the danger, a collision occurs. However, the warning system alerts the driver in advance by emitting a visual display to prevent disaster.

The system also features sensors that monitor the rear of the vehicle. If the driver attempts to backup and an obstacle enters the path, a collision occurs. But, when the system detects potential danger on either side of the vehicle's rear region, the driver receives a visual alert to stop.
