Portland @ Everett, Part 1…Game Notes…

Three of the next four in this building for the Hawks…a quirky schedule to say the least…

Hawks Notes: Portland @ Everett – November 19, 2008


Previous Game – Portland 0 @ Chilliwack 2:  Jadon Potter would score two goals and Mark Friesen stopped all 28 shots he faced to lead the Chilliwack Bruins to a 2-0 victory over the Portland Winter Hawks in front of 3,547 at the Prospera Centre in Chilliwack, BC.  Portland drops to 7-16-0-0 on the season while Chilliwack improves to 9-11-2-2.  Potter tipped home a Brandon Manning point shot just over six minutes into the opening period and then slammed home a wrap-around jam shot six minutes into the final minute to provide all the scoring for the Bruins.  Portland would outshoot the Bruins 28-19, but they were unable to get one past Friesen.  Kurtis Mucha stopped 17 of 19 shots in the loss for Portland.  On special teams, Portland went 0 for 3 on the power play while killing all five power plays against on the night.
