INDEPENDENCE, Mo. - The Idaho Steelheads (24-14-7) extended their road point streak to six games despite a 2-1 shootout loss to the Kansas City Mavericks (18-21-3) on Saturday night from Silverstein Eye Centers Arena.

Despite the Steelheads taking control of the first period, the Mavericks earned the lone goal of the frame. At 12:17, a lead pass connected with forward Darian Dziurzynski for a breakaway up the left side of the zone and the opening tally, 1-0.
