Weekend Recap: Monday Morning Links
The streak continues for the Winterhawks.
Despite the battle the Everett Silvertips put out, the Winterhawks came out on top of the OT shootout last night 2-1, pushing the Hawks to their 20th straight victory and an impressive 46-12-2-3 on the season. Oliver Bjorkstrand and Corbin Boes were the heroes of the game with Bjorkstrand scoring the game winning goal and Boes stopping Everett from scoring any of theirs. [KGW]
Here’s what happened for the rest of the area’s teams:
- The Blazers are coming out of the All-Star break strong with two wins in their last three games. They continue to be propelled by All-Star Damian Lillard who had 32 points against the Timberwolves Sunday. Portland was No. 1 on SportsCenter’s Top 10 plays last night thanks to this amazing play.

- In their home debut of the preseason, the Timbers put out a strong showing but came up short. They fell 1-0 to the San Jose Earthquakes after an own goal. The strong defense on both sides made this a physical game despite the fact it was preseason. [StumptownFooty]
