G Richard Bachman injured as Steelheads fall to Thunder 7-2

In case you hadn't been paying attention, until last night the Idaho Steelheads had been tearing up the ECHL playoffs. After a first round bye, the Steelheads crushed the Grizzlies in 4 and had a 2-1 advantage over the Stockton Thunder. The Thunder made the series even at 2 last night with a 7-2 romp over the Steelheads.

Richard Bachman was pulled around the midway point of the game after allowing 3 goals on 14 shots. "He's obviously injured, and he won't play (in Game 5)," Head Coach Laxdal told the Idaho Statesman. Now goaltending duties will fall to Rejean Beauchemin as the Steelheads now face a best of three to advance to the next round.
