Cincinnati pushes Idaho to brink.

The Cincinnati Cyclones came one step closer to capturing their second Kelly Cup championship in three seasons Thursday, pushing the Idaho Steelheads to the brink of elimination with a 3-2 win at U.S. Bank Arena. The Cyclones lead the series three games to one, and can close it out with a victory at home Friday.

Cincinnati knows a little about being on the brink, having trailed the American Conference final series three games to none against the Reading Royals before staging a miracle comeback. Idaho would host Games 6 and 7 in Boise with a win Friday.
