Tuesday Update

I haven't had a chance yet to order the archive of the game on Saturday in Portland. It sounds like I should probably order it and take a look considering the line brawl and goalie (brief) fight at the end of the game.

While on the surface it is slightly disappointing to see the Tbirds "only" win 2-0 in Portland... I think its really good to see Seattle back to their formula of controlling the defensive end of the zone, get good goaltending and a few timely goals. They allowed Portland a much more manageable 26 shots as compared the the 40+ and 50+ shots they allowed to Vancouver and Chilliwack in the previous games.

Thomas Hickey scored his 5th goal of the year in the third period which tied him with Jeremy Boyer for the team lead in goals. This tie lasted only :58 seconds as Boyer buried his 6th of the season to reclaim the goal lead.

Seattle now starts to pick their schedule up a bit as they play 3 times this weekend starting by hosting Saskatoon on Friday, visiting Spokane Saturday and coming home for the Brandon Wheat Kings Sunday evening.

Whenever the Eastern Conference teams come in for a visit it is important to earn points and this weekend will be no different. I will call for at least 4 points from the Tbirds this weekend with any more being a bonus and any less being a disappointment. If games were played on paper I would guess they hold serve at home on Friday and Saturday and lose in Spokane but you can get to 4 points a number of different ways.

Get two games to OT and win one of the home games would feel like a different weekend but still yield 4 points and at the end of the season... points are all that matter.
