Denver beats North Dakota 4-1, extends win streak against top-ranked teams to 3


DENVER — Goalie Evan Cowley made 29 saves and assisted on a goal as Denver University beat North Dakota 4-1 Saturday to extend its winning streak against No. 1-ranked teams to three games.

The 11th-ranked Pioneers will try for another sweep Saturday. They swept Minnesota Feb. 10-11, 2012, the last time they faced a No. 1-ranked team.

Josiah Didier scored in the first period and Quentin Shore on the power play in the second for the Pioneers (10-4-0, 4-2-0). Shore's goal snapped a streak of 23 straight penalty kills by UND (12-4-2, 5-3-1), which saw its three-game win streak end.

Joey LaLeggia made it 3-1 at 7:51 of the third and Will Butcher added an empty-netter with 1 second left.

Bryn Chyzyk scored a goal and goalie Zane McIntyre made 25 saves for North Dakota.
