Steelheads Take Five of Six From Colorado
Max French netted the only goal of the shootout on Saturday night at CenturyLink Arena, as the Idaho Steelheads (30-16-6) earned their fifth win of the six-game super-series with the Colorado Eagles (32-13-6), a 5-4 final in front of a sell-out crowd of 5,223. The Steelheads have won seven of their last nine and are now four points back of the top spot in the Mountain Division.
French scored in the fourth round of the shootout with a wrist shot past the blocker of Joe Cannata. Philippe Desrosiers stopped all four shootout attempts he saw for his 20th victory of the season, and his fourth in the breakaway contest.
The Eagles erased a 4-2 deficit with less than three minutes remaining to force overtime.
