Denver University Week in Review

by Christa Moore

One of the biggest match ups in the WCHA this weekend was #3 Denver University Vs #7 Colorado College. This arch rival, home-and-home series would be DU’s biggest test of the season yet.

Friday night’s game in Colorado Springs was a bizarre one. Even though DU slightly dominated the first period with a couple of nice hits, it was CC that took the early lead on a power play goal from Matt Stewart. Each team had two power plays and shots were even at nine a piece.

Period two consisted of two goals, two non-goals and a whole mess of penalties.
The first goal was an unassisted,come from behind the net goal from DU’s Jeff Drummond. Goal number two was an impossible angle goal from DU’s David Neale, also unassisted. Neither goal was scored on the power play even though both teams racked up a total of 44 minutes in the box.

DU’s captain Brian Vines had a goal called off after it was determined that he kicked in the puck and a goal from CC was waved off because the net had moved before the puck crossed the line. Shots on goal were 13 for DU and 9 for CC.

The third period was very chippy but a bit more disciplined. It looked like DU was going to wrap it up with a stellar break away goal from Connor James, but it too was wave off with a late interference call. With less than 5 minutes left, CC scored which sent the game into overtime.

Overtime was a bit timid with neither team wanting to make a mistake. With a pile of people in front of the net, DU’s Aaron Mackenzie’s slapped one off of a CC player and into the net for Read more»

Rangers news and notes

by Brandon LeBourveau
If you have watched the Rangers closely this season, Dan Blackburn has been a pleasant surprise. There were not many people who actually believed he could make the NHL at 18-years-old, but he is proving them wrong. In 6 games (5 starts), he is 2-3-0 with a 3.21 goals against average and a .899 save percentage. His numbers are not sparkling, but he has shown that he is not out of place in the NHL. The majority of the goals he has allowed have been mostly because of the Rangers’ horrible defense. There are not many goalies in this league who can consistently make 2 or 3 saves on one play. The Rangers’ defenseman have been horrible at picking up their man in the defensive zone and can’t clear the puck away from the net to save their life. Blackburn has made at least 1 or 2 outstanding saves in each game he’s played, and it was no different Friday night against Carolina. Blackburn was able to slide across the crease on one play with the pads stacked to stuff a Carolina attempt at a tap-in goal. The shot hit Blackburn right above the knee and he was down for a few minutes, but he shook it off and remained in the game. Minutes later he robbed another Carolina player in the slot with a lightning-quick glove save on a shot labeled to the top corner. That save was featured on ESPN’s Top Plays on Sportscenter that night.

Even though Blackburn has been impressive, the Rangers still have to ponder whether or not to keep him for the season or send him back to the Kootenay Ice of the WHL. Blackburn has up until 10 games before his contract kicks in and thus the Range Read more»
