Idaho Steelheads drop Game 7 in OT

Former Idaho player Tristan King scored 3 minutes, 28 seconds into overtime, and the reigning champion Allen Americans eliminated the Steelheads from the Kelly Cup playoffs with a 3-2 victory Wednesday in Texas.

Kruise Reddick and Andrew Carroll scored 2:42 apart in the second period for Idaho, but Allen forced OT with a power-play goal. Philippe Desrosiers had 39 saves for Idaho.

Allen won its 11th straight postseason series across four seasons and two leagues. The Americans have won each of their past three series in seven games. The Steelheads fall to 0-2 in ECHL Game 7s.
