Boise, ID (4/13/14) – For the second consecutive season, the Idaho Steelheads and Colorado Eagles will open the ECHL Kelly Cup Western Conference playoffs, presented by KeyBank, against one another.

The fourth-seeded Steelheads and fifth-seeded Eagles open the best-of-seven first round series on Friday night in Boise at CenturyLink Arena.  Single-game tickets are on sale for each of those games with future games going on sale as they’re deemed necessary.  The complete schedule of games for the series:

The two teams met in the first round last season, with Idaho advancing to the Western Conference semifinals after a six-game series victory.  Three of the six games went to overtime, including Idaho’s decisive game-six victory.

Head to Head:  Idaho won seven of nine matchups between the two teams this season, including all five games in Boise.  The two teams split four games in Colorado.

About Colorado:  The high-powered Eagles boast three of the ECHL’s top ten scorers in Kyle Ostrow, Trent Daavatilla and Kevin Ulanski.  Both Ostrow and Daavatilla were selected as 2nd-Team All-ECHL performers.  But it was defenseman Kevin Young who led Colorado with nine points in nine games against the Steelheads this season.

Western Conference Playoff Bracket:  The winner of the Idaho/Colorado series will advance to meet the winner of the top-seeded Alaska Aces and eighth-seeded Las Vegas Wranglers.  The other half of the bracket consists of (2) Ontario versus (7) Stockton and (3) Utah versus (6) Bakersfield.
