Previous Game – Kelowna 1 @ Portland 2:  Colin Reddin scored two goals and Jordan White stopped 33 shots to lead the Portland Winter Hawks to a 2-1 victory over the Kelowna Rockets on Sunday night at the Memorial Coliseum.  Kelowna got on the scoreboard first when Evan Bloodoff tipped in a Dylan Hood shot on a two-man advantage early in the second period.  Portland tied the score just over a minute later when Reddin tipped a Ryan Kerr entry shot through Kris Lazaruk and then followed it into the empty net to even the score.  The teams remained tied until the Hawks got a three-on-one rush early in the third with Brad Ross feeding Reddin as the trailer on the play and Reddin beat Lazaruk through the pads for the game winner.  Ross also assisted on the first goal for a two-point night and the first points of his WHL career.In net for Portland, White made a spectacular diving save on Stepan Novotny with under 10 minutes remaining to hold the lead for Portland.  Kelowna out-shot the Hawks 34-17 on the night.  On special teams, the Hawks finished 1 for 9 on the power play while killing 4 of 5 power plays against.

  1. Andy and all Hawk Fans…

    Wish that I could have been able to break out of work today to make an Everett run. Always a great place to take in a game and be seen in the pubs near the EEC before and after in ‘hawks gear… GO hawks tonite !!!!

    Saturdays pregame pub meet-up will be 5PM to about 6:15PM at Paddys, 1st and Yamhill. If you are on the eastbound Max, got off at Yamhill District and walk to the west end of the platform: Paddys is right there across the street. From westbound Max, get off at 3rd and Morrison, go one block south and one/two blocks west.

    Cheers, Mike, the Mayor of Widmer

  2. Andy: Why do the W-Hawks play so much better against Everett in their barn thanat home in the ol’ Glass Palace?? Its a mystery that I can not solve. I can’t remember a game there when it was not close midway thru the 3rd period??

    Another great effort, and I know they lost and were shutout again (thats twice in 3 games), but they are generating opportunities, more than i could say for last year.

    Too bad we missed you Mayor, love to join you tomorrow, however business has me in the Seatlle area for the week-end.

    Happy travels Andy and Hawks,
