COLORADO SPRINGS — The Colorado College hockey team is in the final stretch of the regular season and to say their year has been a roller coaster ride would be an understatement.
The results this season are - of course- not up to program standards as the Tigers sit at 4-14-2.
The good news is that Colorado College can put the bad season behind them if they are able to beat rival Denver for the Gold Pan Trophy starting on Thursday night.
It is the third time this season that CC & DU will try to play this series, after both teams had COVID-19 issues this year that caused their games to be delayed.
"It has been a tough stretch here," said Colorado College hockey head coach Mike Haviland. "A lot of top 10 teams back to back here in the last 10 games. And before that you play Denver and they were like No. 15. There last 12 games have been really hard. Seven of them on the road. If you look at them a lot of them are one goal games and we got to find away to get over that hump."
Colorado College and Denver will play begin their 4-game series, that stretch over the next two weeks, on Thursday at Broadmoor World Arena.
