You may have missed it, with all the hullabaloo about the Colorado Avalanche’s juggernaut of a franchise record-setting 19-game point-accumulating bonanza, but the Avs weren’t the only team in the Mile High City enjoying a prolonged stretch of absolute domination. Indeed, Colorado’s other highly successful puck program, the University of Denver Pioneers, also enjoyed a nice stint rolling up the dial in the win column.

“We’re going streaking!” – The Avs and Pios and Frank the Tank, probably.

Maybe you didn’t hear much about it, but head coach David Carle’s Pioneers went 14-0-1 at home to start the season—their first loss in Magness Arena coming on Feb. 12.
