Today, on Let's Go DU, dggoddard posted the following :
In a game that DU had no business tying, much less winning, the Denver
Pioneers committed highway robbery in the Kohl Center Friday night. Denver was
badly outshot, outplayed and outhustled for much of the game, but timely goals,
heroic effort and blind luck trumped all.

And his post title indicates that he thinks it was a bit of a miracle for DU to win. But I don't know, dg, experience has shown me that the Badgers are pretty competent at pissing away a lead and losing a game that they shouldn't have lost, without an intervening miracle for the opposing (and ultimately winning) team. (Yeah, I'm a bit cranky this morning.)
