Idaho had no answers for the Aces in ECHL hockey action at CenturyLink Arena, giving up two goals in each period on its way to a 6-1 loss Wednesday night.
The Steelheads (23-19-4) took an early lead on Andre Bouvet-Morrissette’s first-period goal. Alaska (17-22-2) then took control, finding the net twice before the end of the period.
Alaska capitalized on Idaho’s mistakes, scoring both second-period goals on the power play. The Steelheads also gave up a short-handed goal in the third.
Idaho will look to bounce back as both teams take the ice again Friday and Saturday nights at CenturyLink Arena.
NOTE: Idaho’s Jack Campbell is the ECHL goalie of the month.
