Denver seized control early with Nick Shore rifling a shot over CC senior goalie Joe Howe’s left should less than five minutes into the game.
Colorado College has taken a 1-0 lead only 10 times out of 30 games so far this season.
DU made it 2-0 when Ty Loney redirected a shot by defenseman Joey LaLeggia only moments into a power play with 8:44 left in the opening period.
The Tigers had their chances with three Grade A chances missed, either with a missed redirect or pass through the crease that went through untouched. Denver goalie Juho Olkinuora also made two good saves early in the period to keep the game scoreless for a time.
Associate athletic director Scott Lowenberg said before the game that Saturday’s contest may be the “most sold-out ever” with people showing up during the day being turned away. The game was officially sold out on Tuesday.
