It was exciting to watch as the Idaho Steelheads rallied from a 3-nothing deficit in their opening round Kelly Cup playoff series to beat Allen 4 games to 3.

It was only the second time in the 30 year history of the ECHL playoffs that a team had recovered from a 3-0 start to win a 7 game series.

It was headline material but in truth, the team was glad to have a clean slate in their series with Colorado. The slate didn't stay clean for long as the Eagles won a pair of games in Loveland to quickly take a 2-0 lead in the series.

So Idaho began it's first round down 0-3 and now the second round down 0-2. This is not a pattern that will lead to a Kelly Cup championship, at least the odds are astronomically against it!

So when they say tonight's game is a must win, it really is! You can only mess with the odds for so long before they catch up with you.

If Idaho falls to 0-3 tonight even Yogi Berra might agree that while normally "it ain't over till it's over" this series could be the exception.

On the bright side, Idaho went 4-2 against Colorado in Boise this season so the Steelies are more than capable to stringing three home victories in a row to go back to Loveland up 3-2 or even tied 2-2.

By the way, congratulations to Rick Guth who won a pair of tickets to nights game three at Century Link arena by listening the 630 The Fan.
