WINTERHAWKS 4 PATS 1

PORTLAND, OR - The Portland Winterhawks (21-19-2-0) scored four times in the third period to earn a 4-1 win over the visiting Regina Pats (19-19-3-3) Wednesday at Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

The Hawks finally broke through 3:47 into the third when a shot from Dominic Turgeon went through Regina netminder Jordan Hollett’s pads to even the game at 1-1. Minutes later Portland took their first lead of the game when a blast from the point from Keoni Texeira beat Hollett for a 2-1 advantage.

With 1:03 to go and Hollett on the bench for an extra attacker, Skyler McKenzie scored into the open net to make it 3-1, then added another empty netter with 23 seconds remaining to give Portland the 4-1 win.

Adin Hill earned the win in net with 34 saves on 35 shots.  Jordan Hollett took the loss for the Pats make 22 saves.

Tough loss last night...those are the games they have to win darn it! No puck luck again but a lot of shots from the perimeter and usually no one in front to screen or deflect.

Out tended again was my observation via WHL Live, although Pats didn't seem to have the spark they had the night before. Too many floaters on the ice...Wagner are your ears ringing?

The very nice open ice hit by Hobbs didn't even get the boys going. Why is it that the opposition has to jump a guy after he make a clean shoulder on shoulder hit in open ice? Anyways Hobbs made him pay for it. :))

Better get revved for a couple of big games on the weekend guys!

Your correct William. The thing with our goaltending was not really bad but not to the level of the other guy was. One stop and we get to overtime. Small teams tend to play the way we seen. They shouldn't have been tired as they had two days off before the two games and a day off today. This team needs better tending and more want to.
