If you haven’t been paying attention this weekend, the Winterhawks have outscored opponents 18-2 over the last two games. Yes, really!
An 11-1 romp against Kelowna on Friday already had the Hawks flying high, and a 7-1 win over Seattle in its own building last night brought the momentum to a new high. Diego Buttazzoni, Tyson Jugnauth, Kyle McDonough and James Stefan have each scored in both routs and 17 out of 18 players to skate in each contest have recorded at least one point.
Yes, it’s been a banner weekend for the Hawks – but the job’s not done. Tri-City awaits after topping Spokane on Saturday in their own rivalry clash, and they’ll be keen to slow down the Portland train.
The Americans’ win on Saturday snapped a five-game skid, but they haven’t won consecutive games since Dec. 8 and 9. Sitting one point out of the playoffs, they’ll be a desperate team heading into tonight’s contest as they look to keep pace with the Chiefs and hold off the Thunderbirds.
Rookie defenseman Jackson Smith has had the hot stick this week, with two goals last night and an assist on Wednesday. Jake Sloan has also scored in both games, and trade acquisition Brandon Whynott has three points (1G, 2A) on the week as well. Between the pipes, Kyle Kelsey stopped 30 pucks for the win over the Chiefs and has appeared in five of their last six outings, but Lukas Matecha impressed through the early campaign and earned a look at the CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game late last month.
