FIRST GOAL (1-0 - Denver) FIRST PERIOD - Dylan Gambrell - 11:57 - POWER PLAY
- Denver scored on its first power play opportunity of the night after Graham McPhee sat for a slash called at 11:33. Ian Mitchell reset the charge in Denver's zone and broke it out with Dylan Gambrell. Gambrell skated through the neutral one and dumped it ahead to Troy Terry on the right dot. Gambrell followed the pass and Terry connected with him on the doorstep to beat Joseph Woll at 11:57, 20 seconds into the power play window, for a 1-0 Pioneers lead.

SECOND GOAL (2-0 - Denver) SECOND PERIOD - Ian Mitchell - 1:15 - POWER PLAY
- Denver capitalized on its second-consecutive power play opportunity out of the chute to start the second period. The Pioneers killed off a Jarid Lukosevicius and after Casey Fitzgerald went off for tripping 56 seconds into the second period, Denver scored 19 seconds later to make it 2-0. Terry quarterbacked the play once again, connecting with Ian Mitchell up top for the one timer within the blue line. Henrik Borgstrom was parked between the circles and tipped the puck, deflecting it past Woll to double up the lead at 1:15 of the second period.

THIRD GOAL (3-0 - Denver) SECOND PERIOD - Blake Hillman - 14:33 - EVEN STRENGTH
- The Pioneers added to their lead on a quick draw at 14:33 of the second period. Tyson McLellan cleanly won the draw on the left circle out to Blake Hillman in the slot. Hillman did not even let BC's defense get set and he snapped a shot past Woll just above the left circle to make it a 3-0 affair.

FOURTH GOAL (3-1 - Denver) THIRD PERIOD - Christopher Brown - 1:45 - POWER PLAY
- Boston College was granted a big power play opportunity 19 seconds into the third period and Christopher Brown took advantage at 1:45mto make it 3-1. Casey Fitzgerald generated the play from atop the left zone and slid it over to JD Dudek, positioned just above the right circle. Brown wheeled around the net, parked himself in front of DU goaltender Tanner Jaillet and tipped Dudek's shot in front, lifting the puck over Jaillet's glove for the power play goal.

FIFTH GOAL (4-1 - Denver) THIRD PERIOD - Henrik Borgstrom - 8:09 - POWER PLAY
- The Pioneers regained their three-goal advantage with another power play goal at 8:09 of the third. Michael Karow was called for hooking at 6:34 of the third and the Pios capitalized on another quick draw goal. Gambrell won a draw immediately back to Borgstrom. With time, Borgstrom took two strides and wristed it through traffic to the back of the net to push the score to 4-1.

SIXTH GOAL (5-1 - Denver) THIRD PERIOD - Tyson McLellan - 12:03 - EVEN STRENGTH
- DU added another midway through the third with heavy back pressure. Terry stripped the puck low in Boston College's end and it trickled out to Colin Staub in the slot. McLellan crashed the seam, corralled Staub's pass and beat Woll in tight to make it 5-1.

SEVENTH GOAL (6-1 - Denver) THIRD PERIOD - Blake Hillman - 14:26 - EVEN STRENGTH
- Gambrell won a battle along the near boards and paddled it down to Staub in the right corner. Hillman crashed the zone and Hillman hit him with a long pass through the zone. With a heavy screen in front of Woll, Hillman beat him with a long slapshot at 14:26 to go up, 6-1.
