At this point in the postseason, it's becoming evident that Steelheads' coach Brad Ralph must be a fan of Bachman-Turner Overdrive. His team is taking care of business... And working overtime.
Five of Idaho's playoff games have gone to OT, with Ralph's squad winning four of them.
"It's been a battle every night," said Ralph. "It's a testament to our determination that the guys are persevering and finding a way to win in overtime"
The Steelheads' most recent overtime affair was Saturday's 2-1 win over the Ontario Reign, which gave Ralph's team a 3-2 series lead in the Kelly Cup Western Conference Semifinals. Idaho can clinch the series in Ontario Tuesday night- a game which Ralph hopes to end in regulation.
"It's nerve- wracking hockey," laughed Ralph. "I think my beard is getting grayer by the second in every game."
