Lost in the concern over the Colorado College offense has been a strong senior season for goalie Josh Thorimbert.

"He has given us a chance to win a lot of nights, especially at Clarkson and Western Michigan," Owens said. "He has matured into a real fine goaltender. He has been a great teammate. He has been outstanding."

The Saskatoon, Saskatchewan native bounced back from a subpar junior season (3.73 goals against, .872 saves percentage) with a 2.99 goals against mark and .904 saves percentage entering Friday's game.

He made 15 saves and allowed one power-play goal through two periods Friday.
