Steelheads Lose 3-2 to Grizzlies and Now Trail 2-0 In Series 

BOISE, ID  – The Idaho Steelheads dropped game two of the Mountain Division Semifinals by a final score of 3-2 vs. the Utah Grizzlies Friday night in in front of a sellout crowd of 5,210 fans at the Idaho Central Arena. Idaho travels to Utah Wednesday and Friday for games three and four at 7:10 p.m.  

Tarun Fizer made it 1-0 Utah with a power-play goal at 16:54 of the first period on a one time shot from the left circle. The Grizzlies took the 1-0 lead into the dressing room outshooting the Steelheads 12-6. 

Idaho had four power-plays in the middle frame but were unable to capitalize on any of their chances and still were behind 1-0. Shots in the middle frame were 15-7 Utah. 

An unfortunate bounce off an Idaho defenseman in front of the net led to Utah taking a 2-0 lead 3:39 into the final frame as Kyle Mayhew would get credit the goal. 87 seconds later after a heavy forecheck from Zach Walker and Justin Misiak, Cody Haiskanen (1st) stepped into a wrist shot in the right circle beating Trent Miner to pull the Steelheads back within one. Idaho pulled goaltender Adam Scheel with 2:49 to play trailing by a goal. The Grizzlies won a defensive zone face-off and from his own high slot Dylan Fitze fired towards the empty-net and made it 3-1. The Steelheads pulled the goalie again and Ty Pelton-Byce (1st) fired a wrist shot through the five-hole of Miner with assists going to Owen Headrick and Patrick Kudla. 

Idaho fought until the last second but Trent Miner finished the game turning aside 29 of the 31 shots he faced securing the Grizzlies victory. Adam Scheel also made 29 saves on 31 shots.
