Denver leads 3-1 after first period

The rollercoaster ride may be warming up. After No. 2 Denver took a 3-0 lead, Tigers senior center Scott Winkler pumped in an unassisted goal only 15 seconds later to trim the host Pioneers lead to 3-1 entering the second period.
Shawn Ostrow scored the power-play goal, batting in a pass from David Doremus that beat CC goalie Joe Howe with 2:39 left.
But like Friday, a big lead is not safe in this rivalry series.
Freshman Gabe Levin scored his first goal as a Pioneer, backhanding the puck into the open net after senior forward Chris Knowlton made a good pass to the unmarked left wing near the CC left post.
About seven minutes later, Matt Tabrum, son of former CC assistant Matt Tabrum, fired a hard-angle shot that went into the CC net off senior goalie Joe Howe’s back for a 2-0 lead midway through the first period. It was Tabrum’s second goal of the series.
