The Portland Winterhawks have done something this season they didn't do last season even though they made it to the Memorial Cup Final. After playing a three game in three night grueling set of games, the Hawks find themselves just three points out of top spot in the league and an astounding 20-game winning streak.
In two games this weekend, that streak found itself in jeopardy early on. First, the last place Kamloops Blazers came to town and the Hawks found themselves down early in the game and were playing catchup through the first half of the first period. In the second, the monster that is the Hawks power came to life and owned the rest of the game, peppering Kamloops goaltender Bolton Pouliot with 46 shots and overtook the game, walking away with a 4-2 win.
