Blais picI listened in on the weekly radio show for Nebraska-Omaha coach  Dean Blais, who was impressed by Colorado College’s sweep of rival Denver last weekend.

“That was not an accident,” he said during his weekly radio show. “They went into Denver and got their first road win. You’d think Denver would come out and get some revenge in Colorado Springs the next night and CC was the better team. We are going to have to play at the top of our game to beat them. Guys are confident we can win with the guys we have in there.”

Blais also spoke highly of senior goalie Josh Thorimbert.

“He’s played every game and obviously done a great job,” Blais said. “He had four saves each night (against Denver) that were the difference in the game.”
