Rémi Poirier Makes 30 Saves In Steelheads 4-1 Win Over Rush 

 BOISE, ID – The Idaho Steelheads (18-3-0-1, 37pts) defeated the Rapid City Rush (13-10-0-0, 26pts) by a final score of 4-1 Wednesday night in front of the ninth sellout crowd in just the 11th home game at the Idaho Central Arena. The Steelheads will host the Rapid City Rush Friday and Saturday at 7:10 p.m.

The Steelheads led 2-0 after the first period after an early tally from Owen Headrick (1-0-1) and a late score from A.J. White (1-0-1). Rémi Poirier made 11 saves on 11 shots as the Steelheads were outshot 11-8 in the first frame. Willie Knierim (1-0-1) grabbed the only goal of the second period as Idaho headed into the locker room with a 3-0 lead. Shots were nine to eight in favor of the Steelheads in the middle frame. Idaho thought they made it 4-0 with a few minutes left in the third period but the goal was called back. Jon Martin (1-0-1) scored with a few minutes left to pull the Rush within one but Jordan Kawaguchi (1-1-2) would seal the 4-1 win with an empty-net goal. Rémi Poirier made 30 saves on 31 shots for the win while Daniil Chechelev made 26 on 29 shots in the loss.
