Idaho only leads when it matters -- in overtime

Posted by Doyle Woody, dwoody@adn.com on April 3, 2013 

The Idaho Steelheads opened the playoffs on their home ice Wednesday night, and played catch-up all evening.

They only led once, and at the time that mattered most -- Tyler Gron's strike 26 seconds into overtime lifted Idaho to a 4-3 win over Colorado in Game 1 of the best-of-7 ECHL first-round series.

David de Kastrozza's goal with less than five minutes to go forged a 3-3 tie for Idaho in a game that featured three ties.

Josh Robinson made 35 saves for the Steelheads.
