The Idaho Steelheads return home for game three of the first round of the Kelly Cup Playoffs.  Idaho split with the Allen Americans this past week and now play in the friendly confines of Centurylink Arena for games 3, 4, and 5.

The Steelheads were winners of game one, the fourth straight series in which the Steelheads have won the first game.  The Americans responded with a game 2 victory last Saturday night.  Returning home hasn’t always been the best for Idaho as the team is 3-6 at CenturyLink Arena in the playoffs over the last two post-seasons.

"Once you win the first game you get greedy and you want that second one of course, but anytime you get a split on the road in the playoffs mission accomplished in the short term.  Now our job is to regroup and refocus.  We worked on a few things today that were excited about and you can see some good energy in the guy’s,” Said, Head Coach Neil Graham

The Steelheads were 1-0-1 this season against Allen at Home.  The puck will drop at 7:10 Wednesday Night.
