Western Conference Championship Series -- Best-of-7 -- 2-0 Portland
Portland upends Tri-City 3-1; takes a commanding 3-0 lead in the series. The Winterhawks had a 47-39 shot advantage in the game and had 20 shots alone in the third period. Troy Rutkowski did not factor in the game offensively for Portland, but finished plus two for the game. Ty Rattie (17), the forgotten draft pick from the blockbuster trade between the Colorado Avalanche and St Louis Blues more than a year ago, was credited with the game winner. Portland will have their first opportunity to close out the series on Thursday evening.
