Game Notes: Winterhawks Game Notes


So long, Spokane.

Take care.

As the season winds down, the Winterhawks meet another divisional foe for the final time this evening. What a wild few games it's been against the Chiefs, huh? From starting in Kent, to the track meet in Eastern Washington to an overtime thriller at the VMC. Tonight's winner takes the season series and it should be a fun one.

Seven goals again tonight?

Wouldn't it be nice!

Wednesday night we finally got a glimpse of new set forward lines that stacked some of the team's talent playing with one another. Needless to say, it worked. The group chased one of the toughest goaltenders in the U.S. and matched a team-high with seven goals. Spokane has some high-end talent as well, so goals will be needed to match as well.

Another something to watch?

The team-leading scorer race is wide open with three games to go.

Portland's season awards will be revealed next week and while the most have been decided internally via locker room vote, there's one that still needs to be decided and it goes by the statistical element of the game. Simon Knak paces the bunch with 25, Jaydon Dureau sits just one back with 24, Reece Newkirk is right there too with 23 and you of course can't count out Seth Jarvis with 21. So, who ya got? Heck, if you're reading us and are in the Twittersphere, send us a tweet and let us know who you're thinking. We'll know you're a real one.
