Colorado Snaps Steelhead Winning Streak
The Idaho Steelheads pulled off an improbable three game sweep of Colorado last week in Loveland but any chance of sweeping Colorado again, this time in Boise, ended with a 4-2 Eagle win on Wednesday. Michael Joly netted two goals including the insurance goal on a third-period penalty shot, leading the Colorado Eagles (32-12-5) to a come-from-behind 4-2 victory over the Idaho Steelheads (28-16-6) at CenturyLink Arena. The defeat snapped Idaho’s three-game winning streak, while the Eagles put an end to a six-game winless skid. The Steelheads opened up a 2-0 first period lead, but the Eagles would tie the game before the first intermission and tack on goals in the second and third periods. The two teams meet again Friday and Saturday at Century Link arena as they continue their battle for the lead in the Mountain Division of the ECHL.
