Rémi Poirier Collects Shutout in 4-0 Win Over Utah 

BOISE, ID – The Idaho Steelheads (28-5-0-1, 57pts) defeated the Utah Grizzlies (13-19-1-0, 27pts) by a final score of 4-0 Saturday night at the Idaho Central Arena in front of 5,242 fans. It was the 14th straight sellout and the 15th in 17 home games this year. Idaho will square off against the Grizzlies in Utah at 3:10 p.m. Monday. 

Janis Svanenbergs (1-0-1) scored the only goal of the first period about five minutes. Idaho outshot Utah 15-10 in the first frame. 

Just 71 seconds into the second frame Willie Knierim (2-0-) elevated the score to 2-0. Nick Canade and Dakota Raabe dropped the gloves with just inside five minutes to play in the stanza and that is when the physicality really started to pick up. Moments later Aaron Thow and Knierim would be assessed matching minors for roughing after the whistle. The Steelheads outshot the Grizzlies 13-4 in the frame and led 2-0 through 40 minutes of play. 

Knierim grabbed his second goal of the game midway through third period to make it 3-0. Justin Ducharme (1-2-3) tallied his first of the night with just 3:52 to play in regulation. 

Rémi Poirier recorded his second shutout of the season making 22 saves picking up his eighth straight win while Garrett Metcalf received the loss making 34 saves on 38 shots.
