Heading North…

Typing this from the bus as we roll up I-5 to take on the Seattle Thunderbirds tonight at the ShoWare Center in Kent.

An entertaining, yet frustrating, game last night at the MC with the Hawks falling 4-3 to the red-hot Everett Silvertips on a late power play goal.  Special teams were the difference, with Everett going 3 for 4 on the power play while Portland finished 1 for 6.

The one power play goal for the Hawks was a beauty, however, with Ryan Johansen going coast-to-coast past three Everett defenders before roofing it over Kent Simpson.   Check for that one on the WHL plays of the week next Friday.

The game was frustrating as the Hawks had numerous chances that they just couldn’t bury last night and if they capitalize on just a couple of them, the result would have most likely been different.

Mac Carruth played well in this second consecutive start, and his fourth consecutive appearance, as he appears to be much more comfortable facing WHL opponents.

I’ll be flying solo tonight at the Sho…pregame show on Freedom 970 at 6:40…
