The Idaho Steelheads and Allen Americans meet in Game 6 of their ECHL hockey Western Conference quarterfinal Tuesday in Texas. The game starts at 6 p.m. on KTIK (1350 AM).

Idaho has outscored Allen 10-2 the past two games and leads the series 3-2 with Game 7 set for Wednesday at Allen if necessary.

Allen is without forward Vincent Arseneau, who was suspended two games Monday for a check to the head Saturday in Boise.

The series winner faces Missouri, which won the Henry Brabham Cup this year for the league’s best overall record (52-15-5, 109 points).
