West Valley City, UT--  The Idaho Steelheads came up with just enough offense to get the job done on Monday, as the visiting Steelies scored an overtime goal to pick up a 4-3 win over the Utah Grizzlies. 

The Steelheads trailed by one on three separate occasions, but each time came up with an answer to tie the game up.  Tommy Grant scored in the second to even the game at one, and then David deKastrozza tied the game with a goal in the third. 

Utah scored late in the third, but yet again Idaho had the answer when deKastrozza got the puck on a short-handed breakaway and scored on a back hander to tie the game late. 

In overtime, William Rapuzzi ended the contest when he beat Igor Bobkov with a back-handed shot after a Utah turnover in its own zone. 

Pat Nagel got the win for the Steelheads, stopping 37-of-40 shots on goal. 

Idaho will return home on Sunday, January 26, to host Bakersfield.
