BU travels to Denver this weekend to face the 0-2 but top 10 ranked Denver Pioneers. There is approximately a 0% chance BU takes a team as talented as Denver lightly especially when they ended BU's season last year in the NCAA regional semifinal. The returning players should be looking forward to a chance to make Denver 0-3 and then 0-4 to begin the year. The freshmen should be looking to score a shit ton of goals and dominate the opponent as they have done thus far. The only team that can beat BU this weekend will be themselves. Denver is talented yes but BU is better in net on defense and up front especially now that top Denver forward Dylan Gambrell is out 4-6 weeks.Denver returns some decent talent including senior defenseman Will Butcher who has been playing college hockey for roughly 47 years. They rotated goalies between senior Evan Cowley and junior Tanner Jailet this weekend with neither of them inspiring any great confidence with this performances.
