It was a game the Denver Pioneers were supposed to win, but the annual battles with rival Colorado College always take on a different feel, no matter which team is up or down. Add in the historic nature of the “Battle on Blake,” played outdoors at Coors Field in front of a crowd of 35,144. The Pioneers beat the NCHC’s last-place Tigers 4-1, securing a four-game season sweep and guaranteeing home ice advantage for the first round of the NCHC tournament.
