Portland went 2 for 4 on the power play while Prince George scored once on four chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.
