The Spokane Chiefs and Portland Winterhawks had Saturday off as the Portland Trail Blazers rallied to beat the Dallas Mavericks at the Rose Garden. I wonder if the teams got tickets to the game.
Today, the Rose Garden will again be a hockey rink for Game 2 of the Western Conference finals.
The Chiefs lead the series 1-0 after winning 2-1 on Friday.
Spokane and Portland played each other last year in the first round, with the road team winning each game. Portland won the series 4-3.
Never miss a local story.
In the East, the Kootenay Ice lead the Medicine Hat Tigers 2-0 as the series moves to Cranbrook for Games 3 and 4.
Saturday, the Ice beat the Tigers 3-0 with goals by Cody Eakin, Kevin King and Joe Antilla.
