GAME #4 at Idaho

10/30/21 | Idaho Central Arena | 7:10 P.M.

Watch | Listen

LAST TIME OUT: The Rapid City Rush scored three unanswered goals in the third period, erasing what was a two-goal deficit en route to a 5-4 win over the Idaho Steelheads, Friday night at the Idaho Central Arena. Stephen Baylis scored twice, Chase Harrison had a goal and an assist and Kenton Helgesen netted the game-winner. Cole Kehler made 27 saves on 31 shots in his first start with the Rush.

WORKING FROM BEHIND: Rapid City allowed the game’s first goal 2:06 into the first period on Friday and has seen its opponent score first in every game thus far this season. It trailed, 4-2, in the third period before rattling off three unanswered goals to earn a 5-4 win. Two goals was the largest deficit of the young season for Rapid City and thus the largest deficit it has overcome in a win.

A RUDE RETURN: Rush head coach Scott Burt earned a victory in his first game as a head coach against the Idaho Steelheads. Burt was the assistant coach for the Steelheads in the 2019-20 season and won two Kelly Cups as a player for Idaho. His number 12 is one of four numbers retired by the Steelheads.

HOT START BAYLIS: Stephen Baylis scored twice on Friday night, a power play goal in the first period and the first of the three unanswered Rapid City goals in the third. His two goals matched a career-high; Baylis last put up a pair of goals in a 5-4 Rush win over Wichita on February 26, 2021. Through three games, Baylis leads the Rush with three goals, two of which have come on the power play.

POWERFUL: Rapid City went 1-for-3 on the power play on Friday night and now has a power play goal in each of its three games this season. The Rush are 4-for-15 on the power play thus far, and that 26.7% success rate is the fifth-best in the ECHL.

SEE YOU SOON: The Rush and Steelheads meet again in just 11 days when Idaho arrives in Rapid City for a set of three games in four days beginning on Wednesday, November 10.

ODDS AND ENDS: Rapid City was outshot, 31-26, on Friday night and has now been outshot in each of its three games this season...Colton Leiter scored in the first period of Friday’s 5-4 win. It was his first career ECHL goal...The Rush won their first road game of the season for the first time since the 2014-15 season, when they beat the Quad City Mallards, 3-0….Gabe Chabot and Logan Nelson both had an assist on Friday and are the only Rush players to record a point in all three games this season.

UP NEXT: The Rush hit the road again next weekend for a pair of games against the Utah Grizzlies. Friday’s puck drop is scheduled for 7:10 P.M. at the Maverik Center in West Valley City.
