The Idaho Steelheads defeated the Colorado Eagles 3-2 in overtime Friday night, winning their first round Kelly Cup Playoffs series 4-games-to-2.
The Steelheads trailed 2-1 late in the third period, but Andrew Carroll netted a powerplay tally with under three minutes remaining to force overtime for the third time in the series.
Just like in game one, Idaho ended the extra session quickly. Carroll lit the lamp again just 1:43 into overtime, advancing the Steelheads to the Western Conference Semifinals for the fourth consecutive season.
