The Idaho Steelheads play the Colorado Eagles in the opening round of the ECHL Kelly Cup hockey playoffs. The first two games of the Mountain Division semifinal are in Colorado this weekend, followed by games at CenturyLink Arena in Downtown Boise on April 19, 21-22.
The Idaho Steelheads allowed two third-period goals in a 3-2 loss to the Mountain Division-leading Colorado Eagles on Friday night at CenturyLink Arena in Boise. The game featured 116 penalty minutes, eight fighting majors and four misconduct penalties.
