Idaho Steelheads open homestand with win over Allen; teams meet again Saturday

Joe Faust, Caleb Herbert and Kyle Jean each scored a goal for Idaho in a 3-2 win over the Allen Americans in an ECHL hockey game Friday at CenturyLink Arena.

It was the first of five consecutive home games, as the Steelheads (10-5-2) play the Americans (8-10-0) again at 7:10 p.m. Saturday and then host Alaska for three games next week.

Idaho’s win in combination with Colorado’s shootout loss puts the two teams in a tie for first in the Mountain Division.
