It seems like forever ago the Idaho Steelheads were bounced from the ECHL Kelly Cup playoffs by the Colorado Eagles. While Idaho players have traded their hockey sticks for golf clubs, the Colorado players are still on the ice and have navigated their way to the Kelly Cup Final!

that means for the second year in a row the team that bounced Idaho from the playoffs in the first round has advanced to the final. Last year that was the Allen Americans who won it all.

Now Colorado awaits the winner between Manchester and South Carolina in game 7 of their semi final series Wednesday May 24th to decide the Kelly Cup Title for 2017.

If the Eagles win it all, that would be two years in a row teams have had to go through Boise to win the Cup!

I know, an optimistic way to look at a first round bust but just trying to find the silver lining in a hockey season that ended way too soon for the Steelies.
