Broncos Fall Short at No. 14 Denver

DENVER – The ninth-ranked Western Michigan hockey team suffered its first road loss of the season, falling to No. 14 Denver, 5-3, at Magness Arena on Friday night.

The Broncos (6-3-0, 1-2-0, NCHC) picked up goals from Michael Joyaux, Drew Worrad and Josh Passolt on the night but were outshot 41-22. WMU finished 1-for-3 on the power play, while the Pioneers were 2-for-2.

Western Michigan took a very early 1-0 lead on goal by Joyaux just 43 seconds into the game. Joyaux fired the puck toward the net from the middle of the blue line and Worrad provided a screen on DU goalie Magnus Chrona as it found the back of the net.
