Steelheads, Thunder meet for Western Conference title

Boise, ID (5/1/13) - The Idaho Steelheads and Stockton Thunder will meet for the 2013 ECHL Western Conference championship and a berth in the Kelly Cup Finals, beginning on Friday at CenturyLink Arena in Boise. The Steelheads secured their position in the Conference Finals, presented by KeyBank, by defeating the Colorado Eagles in the Conference Quarterfinals and Ontario Reign in the Conference Semifinals, each in six games. Stockton advanced past Las Vegas in a seven-game quarterfinal series before defeating top-seeded Alaska in six games in the semifinals. Tickets for Games 1 and 2 of the series in Boise are already on sale at the CenturyLink Arena box office or by going online to www.idahosteelheads.com. The complete schedule series: Game 1 - Stockton at Idaho, Friday, May 3 (7:10 PM) Game 2 - Stockton at Idaho, Sunday, May 5 (5:10 PM) Game 3 - Idaho at Stockton, Wednesday, May 8 (8:00 PM) Game 4 - Idaho at Stockton, Friday, May 10 (8:30 PM) Game 5 - Idaho at Stockton, Saturday, May 11 (8:30 PM) ** Game 6 - Stockton at Idaho, Monday, May 13 (7:10 PM) ** Game 7 - Stockton at Idaho, Tuesday, May 14 (7:10 PM) ** ** - denotes "If Necessary" game Game 2 will be played on Sunday in Boise due to an event that had previously been booked for Saturday at CenturyLink Arena in Boise. The 5:10 start time is the first non-7:10 game the Steelheads have played at home in over two seasons. The Steelheads and Thunder met five times during the regular season with Stockton winning three of those games. However, just one was played in Boise - a 4-2 Idaho win on November 14 - and each of the five games was decided by two goals or less. The two teams have met twice before in the Kelly Cup playoffs. Idaho defeated Stockton in the opening round of the 2004 postseason and also in the 2010 Western Conference Finals. Season Tickets for the 2013-14 season are already on sale! After finishing the regular season with 45 wins and nearly 100 points in the standings, you won?t want to miss any of the action next season when the Steelheads take the ice. Full-season packages begin at as little as $275 per seat. Partial-season packages are available as well.
