Scott and Holloway stay hot and so do the Birds

Greg Scott tallied the natural hat trick in the 2nd period, blew open a 2-1 game and Seattle cruised to a 5-2 victory over the Prince George Cougars.

Riku Helenius made his first start in a while last night and was solid in the win stopping 22 of 24 shots.

I don't think Thomas Hickey had internet in Prince George to read my blog comments about his slight scoring drought, so I don't think I can take even a little credit for his explosion. Great to see Thomas pick up 3 assists, all on Greg Scott goals.

Here is my best calculation on the Magic Number for Seattle to clinch the 4th seed in the West.

Seattle and Everett both have 6 games remaining, 2 with each other. Seattle has essentially 41.5 wins (counting 1 pointers as half a win) and Everett has 39.5 wins. I believe.... this gives Seattle a Magic number of 5. With a combination of 5 Seattle wins and/or Everett losses Seattle would clinch the 4th seed. Beating Portland on Saturday and sweeping the remaining games with Everett would get it done, but that of course might be easier said than done.

For Seattle to clinch at least 5th over Kelowna the Magic number is 3.5.
