Robinson, De Kastrozza steal game one for Steelheads

By Paul Gerke. CREATED Apr 18, 2014

The Idaho Steelheads stole game one of their Kelly Cup Western Conference Quarterfinals series Friday night, edging the Colorado Eagles 2-1.

Josh Robinson, who was named the starting goaltender just hours before puck-drop, stopped 42 of 43 shots and kept Idaho in the game for long stretches. The Steelheads were out-shot 43-25.

David De Kastrozza scored both Idaho goals. The first came on a powerplay early in the first period. The second broke a 1-1 tie with just 2:45 to play in the third period.

Game two of the best-of-seven series is Saturday night at CenturyLink Arena.
