EVERETT, Wash. - Ty Rattie had a goal and an assist as the Portland Winterhawks downed the host Everett Silvertips 4-1 on Saturday in Western Hockey League play.

Derrick Pouliot, Brendan Leipsic and Tyler Wotherspoon also scored for the Winterhawks (22-4-1), who have won six games in a row and 16 of their last 17.

Cole MacDonald scored the lone goal for the Silvertips (11-18-2), who trailed 4-0 after 40 minutes of play.

Brendan Burke made 29 saves for the win as Daniel Cotton turned aside 30 shots in a losing cause.

Portland went 1 for 5 on the power play while Everett failed to score on four chances with the man advantage.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
