Steelheads Fall 3-0 to Solar Bears
BOISE, Idaho - The Idaho Steelheads (8-5-4) could not solve the Orlando Solar Bears (5-7-2) in a 3-0 loss on Wednesday night from CenturyLink Arena.
The Solar Bears came out of the gates on the offensive and notched the first goal of the night. At 4:18, an intended centering pass came to the left point, and there it was defenseman Rich Boyd to slap a shot through traffic to take the initial 1-0 lead.
After a scoreless second period, the Solar Bears cashed in on an early power play goal at 0:27 of the third period thanks to forward Mikhail Shalagin from the right circle to double the lead, 2-0. The Steelheads pressed throughout the frame, however Solar Bears forward Trevor Olson sealed off the scoreline with an empty net goal at 19:59, sinking the Steelheads at 3-0.
Solar Bears goaltender Zachary Fucale (2-2-1) turned away all 44 shots in the win, while Steelheads netminder Colton Point (2-3-1) stopped 19 of 21 shots in the loss.
