BOISE, IdahoThe Idaho Steelheads (24-16-1) scored three times in five minutes early in the third period and took care of business defensively for a 3-0 shutout win over the Jacksonville Icemen (22-13-3) on Wednesday night from Idaho Central Arena. The Steelheads win all four games in the homestand and have taken six-straight in Boise.THE GAME’S STO­­RYThe work put in through the first two periods allowed for the quick strikes early in the third period to come through. Forward David Norris (1:10 3rd) followed up a pass and shot to punch in a backhanded rebound for the eventual game-winner and the 1-0 lead. Nice passing and stick work led to forward Chase Zieky (4:26 3rd) fighting off a stick check minutes later to spread out the lead and provide the first insurance goal. Captain A.J. White (6:10 3rd) then won a puck battle net-front to create a backhanded chance to broaden the lead, 3-0. With a strong goaltending effort by Colton Point, the Steelheads wrapped up their sixth shutout of the season.ICCU 3 STARS OF THE GAME1. IDH – Colton Point (26-save shutout)2.
