The Idaho Steelheads (10-14) aren’t off to a fearsome start this year, but that doesn’t mean they’re intimidated by teams with superior records. Boise’s minor-league hockey squad already has beaten the Allen Americans (15-9) on the road; now they’ll face them at home on Friday, Dec. 18, and Saturday, Dec. 19. After that, it’s a home test Saturday, Dec. 26, against the Utah Grizzlies, another team with a winning record that the Steelies took down in an entertaining comeback win earlier this week.
7:10 p.m. Dec. 18, 19, 26, CenturyLink Arena, 233 S. Capitol Blvd., Boise. $10-$35. centurylinkarenaboise.com.
