An uncharacteristic shaky start by all-star tender Mike "Smitty" Smith and some questionable play making by defense Craig "Give it Away" Zamzow helped the Silver Seven skate to a 7-6 win.

CU will be counting on him to regain the scoring touch that once had him as one of the leagues premiere scorers.
