Idaho Steelheads Leave for Tulsa
The Tulsa Oilers beat Kansas City 6-2 Wednesday night in game 7 of their ECHL Playoff series. The Oilers now move on the second round and will host the Idaho Steelheads Friday and Sunday in games one and two.
Tulsa won the regular season title in the Mountain Division of the ECHL while Idaho was second.
The Steelheads earned their spot in the Mountain Division Final thanks to a 4-1 series victory over the Utah Grizzlies in the opening round of the postseason. This will be the first meeting between the Steelheads and Oilers in franchise history during the postseason, but the series starts on the road thanks to the Mountain Division Title earned by Tulsa at the end of the regular season. The winner of this series will advance to the Western Conference Final.
The best-of-seven game Mountain Division Final are guaranteed a minimum of two home games for the Steelheads with the potential for one additional home game if the series goes at least five games.
