The battle for win number two went down between #3 The University of Denver and the University of Minnesota Duluth Bulldogs on Saturday after UMD fell to the Pioneers on Friday 6-2.

UMD went into the game looking to split the series with the Pioneers, and they did just that as the game went down to the wire, with the Bulldogs pulling out on top, winning 6-5.

Junior defenseman Darian Gotz ripped in the first goal roughly two minutes into the game for the Bulldogs, then Quinn Olson put them on top at the end of the first period. Five players scored for the Bulldogs including Ben Steeves, as he notched his 19th goal of the year.

The Bulldogs return home from splitting a road series with #3 Denver to host Miami on February 24th. Puck drops at 7 p.m.
