PORTLAND, Ore. - Mac Carruth stopped 26 shots and Brendan Leipsic scored twice as the Portland Winterhawks blanked the visiting Spokane Chiefs 4-0 on Saturday in Western Hockey League play.

Oliver Bjorkstrand and Taylor Leier had a goal and an assist each for the Winterhawks (43-7-3), who won for the sixth time in their last seven games, and Troy Rutkowski and Seth Jones chipped in two assists apiece.

Eric Williams made 43 saves for the Chiefs (30-20-2), who are winless in four games.

Quote of the Day

With this being the last year [at the Coliseum], we'd love to try to get back to the dance like we did against Pittsburgh and prove ourselves and go even further. It's an important year.

— New York Islanders coach Jack Capuano
