Portland Winterhawks 4 at Spokane Chiefs 2

Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena – Spokane, WA – Friday, March 10th

 

The Portland Winterhawks (37-26-1-3) earned a 4-2 victory over the Spokane Chiefs (26-31-7-3) Friday in a road contest played in Spokane for their fifth consecutive win.

 

Cody Glass led the way with two goals against the Chiefs, matching his two-goal outing Wednesday against Prince George. With these goals, Glass is now riding a three-game goal streak and a five-game point streak as he approaches the 100-point mark on the season.

 

Skyler McKenzie added a late empty net goal for a two-point night, while captain Keegan Iverson finished with two assists to extend his point streak to seven games with five consecutive multi-point outings in that span.

 

The Hawks continue their busy weekend at home with back-to-back games Saturday and Sunday as they battle for playoff positioning. Tomorrow night, the Hawks host the Seattle Thunderbirds at 6 p.m. at Veterans Memorial Coliseum in a game that will be broadcast live on Portland’s CW.
