WHL Championship Serries -- Best of 7 -- 2-1 Kootenay
Kootenay trips up Portland 5-4 in overtime; takes a commanding 3-1 lead in the series. The Winterhawks have been unable to convert on the power play in back-to-back games. Costly penalties in the extra session hurt the Winterhawks dearly. Troy Rutkowski recorded his fourth goal of the post-season, as he scored in the second period. He also had the primary assist on the game tying goal with 17 seconds remaining in the contest. Portland will try to extend the series on Friday night.
