EVERETT, Wash. - Brendan Burke stopped all 31 shots he faced as the Portland Winterhawks crushed the host Everett Silvertips 8-0 on Saturday in Western Hockey League action.

Taylor Leier and Troy Rutkowski each scored twice for the Winterhawks (37-5-1), who extended their win streak to 13 games, and Nicolas Petan had a goal and two assists.

Brendan Leipsic and Taylor Peters had a goal and an assist each and Chase De Leo added a single goal to round out Portland's offence.

Daniel Cotton started in goal for the Silvertips (17-25-2) and he picked up the loss after allowing six goals on 38 shots through 46 minutes of action. Austin Lotz stopped 3-of-5 shots in relief.

Portland went 3 for 6 on the power play while Everett failed to score on seven 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.
