The Portland Winterhawks (25-11-2-1) got the overtime winner from Taylor Peters for a 4-3 win over the Moose Jaw Warriors (24-10-4-1) Tuesday at Veterans Memorial Coliseum in front of 2,210 fans.

It was the Winterhawks’ 13th straight home win.

Moose Jaw opened the scoring 3:10 into the game on a goal by defenseman Tyler Vanscourt, but the Hawks got that one back 1:08 later when Chase De Leo deflected a point shot past Warriors netminder Spencer Tremblay three seconds into a power play to even the game at 1-1.

The Hawks then took a lead at the 17:19 mark of the first when Ty Rattie fed Brad Ross with a gorgeous pass across Moose Jaw’s crease, with Ross burying it to give Portland a 2-1 lead. The Warriors got a late goal from Tanner Eberle to tie the game at 2-2 going into the second period.

The Warriors took a 3-2 lead nine minutes into the second when Justin Kirsch scored during four-on-four play, the lone goal of the period.

Portland tied the game once again at the 11:53 mark of the third period when Dillon Wagner snapped a shot past Tremblay, his third of the season, to make it 3-3. The Hawks held a 14-5 advantage in shots on goal in the third, but couldn’t get the go-ahead goal, setting up overtime.

From there, Peters made a great rush into the Moose Jaw zone and fired the winner past Tremblay for the victory in the extra frame.

The Hawks held a 49-29 advantage in shots on goal. The Hawks were 1-4 on the power play and a perfect 6-6 on the penalty kill.

The Winterhawks are back in action Friday when they host the Everett Silvertips at 7 p.m. at the Rose Garden.
