Spokane used a 2-1 win last Friday night to stake their claim to a 1-0 lead in the series but Portland turned things around on Sunday night in a 2-1 victory of their own.
Sunday marked the first time the Chiefs were outshot in 13 playoff games as Portland bested Spokane by a 36-35 margin. The winning team has scored a power play goal in each game as both teams are 1-6 in the series with the man-advantage.
Sunday night also marked the first time since December 29th, 2009 that Spokane lost a game in regulation in Portland. Since that 4-3 loss the Chiefs had gone 8-0-1-0 on the road versus the Winterhawks including regular season and playoffs. Spokane was 2-3-0-0 at home versus Portland in the regular season.
