Steelheads lose early lead, rally to beat Grizzlies

Idaho saw a two-goal lead disappear early in the third period, but Connor Chatham responded a few minutes later with his first professional goal as the Steelheads beat Colorado 4-3 in an ECHL hockey game Saturday night.

Joe Basaraba, Rob Linsmayer and Brandon Anselmini all scored in the first period, and Idaho took a 3-1 lead. Steelheads goalie Landon Bow turned away 37 shots, and Colorado held a 40-22 shot advantage. Idaho returns home Wednesday when they play the Adirondack Thunder at CenturyLink Arena.
