HAWKS EARN SECOND STRAIGHT OVERTIME WIN – Ty Rattie completed a hat trick with a shorthanded goal 7:58 into overtime to lift the visiting Portland Winterhawks to a 5-4 win over the Tri-City Americans in Game 2 of the Kal Tire WHL Western Conference Championship series on Saturday.

It’s the Winterhawks’ second straight 5-4 overtime win over the Americans to start the series, and gives them a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series heading back to Portland for Games 3 and 4 next week.

Rattie also tied the game at 4-4 with a power play marker with just 1:53 left in the third period while Brad Ross and Joey Baker also scored for the Winterhawks, who went 2-for-4 on the power play in the contest.  Derrick Pouliot picked up four assists in the win.

Patrick Holland and Jordan Messier each tallied a goal and an assist while Adam Hughesman and Justin Feser also counted for the Americans, who have now lost all five overtime games they’ve played in the 2012 post-season.

Mac Carruth turned in a 34-save effort to post his 10th win of the playoffs.  Ty Rimmer made 43 saves to absorb the loss for the Americans.

Portland leads best-of-seven series 2-0
