Hawks Blank Kamloops To Take 2-0 Series Lead
Written by Winterhawks.com    Saturday, 20 April 2013 22:57   

PORTLAND - The Portland Winterhawks won Game 2 of the Western Conference Final 4-0 Saturday to take a 2-0 series lead over the Kamloops Blazers in front of 9,132 fans at Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

Mac Carruth stopped all 27 shots he faced for his third shutout of the playoffs, and his sixth career postseason blanking, extending his franchise record. He also set a new WHL record among goaltenders by appearing in his 66th career playoff game, passing Cam Ward (Red Deer, 2001-04) for sole possession of the mark.

The Hawks scored the lone goal of the first period at the 15:31 mark when Seth Jones carried the puck into the Kamloops zone, went behind their net and stuffed it past goaltender Cole Cheveldave on the other side to make it 1-0.

It remained a one-goal game until just under four minutes to go in the second, when Ty Rattie took a feed from Brendan Leipsic and went high over Cheveldave to make it 2-0, which remained the score after 40 minutes. 

The Hawks then struck on a power play just 45 seconds into the third when a tic-tac-toe passing play ended with Nic Petan scoring to make it 3-0. Portland took advantage of another man advantage at the 10:01 mark when Brendan Leipsic scored to extend the lead to 4-0, which stood as the final. 

With three points in the win, Rattie took over fourth place in WHL history with 84 career playoff points, two behind Rob Brown for third. He also moved closer to the league record for career postseason goals, with his second period marker the 43rd of his postseason career, bringing him just four behind Mark Pederson for first in league history. 

Leipsic also finished with three points, while Derrick Pouliot added two assists. 

Portland was 2-8 on the power play and a perfect 5-5 on the penalty kill.

The series shifts to Kamloops for Game 3 Tuesday and Game 4 Wednesday, both at 7 p.m.
