Wednesday Number Crunching…

A big 6-5 win last night over the Tri-City Americans at the Toyota Center, ending an 11 game losing streak in that building for the Portland Winterhawks.  The win moved Portland three points clear of the Spokane Chiefs with both teams having played 63 games.  Teh Americans are now on the outside, looking in at the race for first in the U.S. Division and Western Conference, sitting 11 points back of Portland with 62 games played.

Some numbers of note:

30 – Both Sven Bartschi and Nino Niederreiter reached the 30-goal plateau last night in the victory over the Ams with Nino getting two to hit 31 for the season.  They join Ryan Johansen (34 goals) in the 30-goal club.  Also, last night was the 30th victory of the season for goaltender Mac Carruth.  Carruth becomes the first Winterhawk goaltender since Lanny Ramage in 2001-02 to reach the 30 win mark in a season.

80 – Craig Cunningham’s three points last night put him at 80 for the season.  Cunningham is tied for 10th in WHL scoring with those 80 points.

20 – The road win last night was the 20th of the season for Portland, giving the Hawks back-to-back 20 road win seasons.  This is just the second time in team history that the Hawks have had consecutive 20 road win seasons, the other was in the 1979-80 (23 wins) and 1980-81 (24 wins) seasons.

  1. Up 6-1 to barley sneak out the win, did we forget to come out of the locker room the last period and a half; did Tri just turn it up big time, what happened? I would have to think even though they (Tri) lost the game they had to build a little more confidence against Portland in the fact of coming back from 6-1 to 6-5 that’s doing pretty well. Not being there, or unable to listen but only a few minutes, I don’t know.


  2. I heard most of the third, didn’t sound like a complete collapse on the hawks part, more an offensive breakout in a major way on TC part. To the best of my knowledge the hawks still had almost 10 shots in the period which means they spent some time on TC end of the ice.


  4. Andy, thank you for being a nerd. Not having season tickets this year I have followed the team vicariously through your reports and broadcasts. I am thankful that you take so much time to jot down numbers that the majority of people don’t think about until they read them. You are an asset to the fans of the team.

    Again, thank you for all your time and effort.
