Steelheads bounce back for shootout win
Idaho came back from an early deficit with two power play goals and held on to beat the Allen Americans in a shootout Friday night in ECHL hockey action.
Allen scored two first-period goals, but Joe Faust pulled one back before the end of the frame.
Travis Ewanyk tied the game at 2-2 with a goal midway through the third period, and neither team would find the net again.
Never miss a local story.
Jefferson Dahl and Kyle Jean scored for Idaho in the shootout, and Branden Komm made two saves to lock up the win.
Idaho outshot Allen 44-28.
The Steelheads (16-10-3) return to action Wednesday to open a three-game series at Rapid City. Faust returned to the team earlier Friday after playing two games with the AHL’s Texas Stars.
