PORTLAND, Ore. - Troy Rutkowski scored once and set up two more as the Portland Winterhawks defeated the visiting Everett Silvertips 4-1 on Saturday in Western Hockey League playoff action.

Game 3 is set for Wednesday when the Silvertips host the Winterhawks at Comcast Arena.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
