Boise, Idaho – The Allen AMERICANS, ECHL affiliate of the Seattle Kraken (NHL), lost to the Idaho Steelheads by a score of 3-2 in overtime on Friday night despite an amazing third period by the Red.
Spencer Asuchak tied the score with just 3:06 left on the clock in the third period scoring a shorthanded goal, his sixth of the season, and extending his point streak to a season-high nine games.
“It was a heartbreaking loss,” noted Americans Captain Asuchak. “We kept fighting. Our penalty kill led by Hayden Lavigne kept us in the game. He was our best player tonight. He deserved a star of the game. Now we build off tonight and get both points tomorrow night.”
Idaho forward Yauheni Aksiantsiuk was the star of the night with a natural hat trick scoring all three Idaho goals including the game winner in overtime.
The AMERICANS went 0-for4 on the power play, while Idaho was 1-for-8. Both Chad Costello and Gavin Gould saw their long point streaks come to an end.
Game time is 8:10 pm CST for the Saturday night series finale.
