Steelheads: So You’re Saying There’s a Chance?
In the movie "Dumb and Dumber" when the main character is told his chances of dating this particular girl are a billion to one, he responds with: So you're saying there is a chance!
Right now only the most optimistic Idaho Steelhead fan would agree about there being a chance for the Steelies to rebound from yet another 3-0 series deficit.
Colorado beat Idaho 3-2 last night to put the Steelheads in the same big hole they faced in round one of the Kelly Cup Playoffs against the Allen Americans.
Idaho bucked the odds big time by winning four straight games to beat Allen 4 games to 3. It was only the second time in 30 years of ECHL playoff action that a team had overcome a 3-0 deficit.
To think it could happen twice in one playoff season, well congratulations, you are one loyal fan!
That having been said I have to admit, Idaho hosts game 4 tonight and with a win would host game 5 on Saturday. We know the Steelies can beat anybody on home ice and if they did the series would head back to Colorado with the Eagles up just 3 games to 2,
At that point, who knows what will happen....however we have to get to that point and the Eagles have simply shown themselves as the better team.
By the way, congratulations to Adam Johnson who won a pair of tickets from 630 The Fan for game 4 tonight. Hopefully we'll be able to give another pair of tickets away tomorrow for game 5. If Idaho wins we'll do just that during the 8 a.m. hour of the Dan Patrick show.
