Denver goalie makes improbable stick save

Denver Pioneers goaltender Juho Olkinuora might have made the save of the year on Friday night against North Dakota.  If anything, it’s the best save from the College hockey season and the only save close to it right now was made exactly one week ago by St. Louis Blues goalie Jake Allen.  After making a save on the initial shot, Olkinuora had to dive across the crease to knock...

UND and DU skate to a 2-2 tie.

Grand Forks, ND – It's not mystery that the Denver Pioneers and the University of North Dakota don't like each other very much.
