The Idaho Steelheads played their final home game of the regular season Saturday night at CenturyLink Arena.
Idaho still has three road contests to play, but here's a look at the Steelheads - by the numbers - as they skate toward the postseason.
5-0: The score of Saturday's game, won by the Ontario Reign. Idaho saved its worst for last. It was the most lopsided home loss of the season.
"Our whole team collectively didn't win any battles," Idaho coach Brad Ralph said. "We were up against a bigger, stronger team, but we didn't outskate them, we didn't win any battles, their role players did a better job than our role players, our offensive guys didn't generate any offense. I could go on for a while, but at the end of the day I thought they wanted it more."
Ontario goalie Mike Condon, who just finished his four-year career at Princeton, earned the shutout in his third professional game.
There weren't many positives in the loss, but the Steelheads can take some solace in this fact: They went 5-3 in their past eight games, and those contests were all played against division-leading teams.
Also, Idaho finished the season series against Ontario with a 5-3-1 record.
43-19-7: Idaho's record. That's good for 93 points, the fourth most in the ECHL. Last season the team finished 31-32-9, 17th in the league.
27: Goals scored by Idaho forward Austin Smith, tops among Steelheads players. That's nine fewer than Alaska's Nick Mazzolini, who is tied for the league lead with 36 goals. However, Mazzolini played in 32 more games because Smith split his season between Idaho and Texas of the AHL. Smith leads all rookies in goals scored. Ontario's Mario Lamoureux sits in second place with 25 goals, although he played in 33 more games than Smith.
"He's got a knack for the net," Ralph said of Smith. "He's very hungry around the net, and in the offensive zone, the puck is always on his stick. He thrives off scoring goals."
24-8-4: Idaho's home record. The Steelheads had the third-best record in the league on its home ice prior to Saturday's loss. Last year, Idaho went 15-18-3 at CenturyLink Arena.
27: Wins for Idaho goalie Josh Robinson, the second-highest total in the ECHL. His save percentage (.927) also ranks No. 2 in the league, and his goals-against average (2.50) is in the top 10.
Not bad for a rookie who came to Idaho as largely an unknown commodity.
"He's had a great attitude and work ethic all year," Ralph said. "Down the stretch here, he's been winning us hockey games. It was unfortunate that tonight didn't work in his favor, but he's been pretty consistent all year."
3: Possible opponents Idaho could face in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs. If the season ended today, Idaho would face Colorado. The Steelheads went 7-1-0 against the Eagles this season.
Regardless of the opponent, Idaho will open the playoffs at home Wednesday, April 3. Game 2 is April 4 at CenturyLink Arena.
