BOISE, Idaho — For the Alaska Aces, the end was furious, then forlorn.
With five minutes to go Tuesday night, Julian Talbot‘s potential game-tying penalty shot was rebuffed by Idaho Steelheads goaltender Steve Silverthorn (pictured). In the final minute, Joe Talbot‘s stuff attempt at the left post fluttered an inch wide. In the final seconds, Silverthorn flashed his pad and got a toe on Kimbi Daniels‘ point-blank bid.
