BOISE, Idaho The Idaho Steelheads (31-27-3) posted six goals with points in all five by forward Ryan Dmowski in a 6-1 win over the Utah Grizzlies (36-22-3) on Saturday night from Idaho Central Arena in front of 5,247 fans, the 20th sellout of the season.THE GAME’S STO­­RYThe Steelheads boasted four goals in the first period, capitalizing on the first shift of the game with a deflection from forward Ryan Dmowski (0:48 1st) to take the early 1-0 lead. While in a 4-on-4 sequence, the team added their second when defenseman Will Cullen (5:02 1st) blasted a shot from the blue line to double the advantage, 2-0. Dmowski (7:39 1st, 9:50 1st) then added two more to complete the first-period hat-trick and take a 4-0 lead into the intermission. Though the Grizzlies added their lone goal in the second period, the Steelheads earned two more in the final frame with two tallies from Dmowski (7:31 3rd, 7:50 3rd) within 19 seconds to bloat the lead to its final result, 6-1.ICCU 3 STARS OF THE GAME1.
