Cougars Tie Series

Sunday, March 26, 2017 @ 7:52 PM

Prince George, B.C.- The Prince George Cougars  have tied their  playoff series with Portland,  downing the Winterhawks 5-1.In front of 4141 fans,  the Cougars Brad Morrison  was the first to score,  getting the puck in behind Portland’s  Cole Kehler at the 15:57 mark of the 1st period.

In the second period,  the Cougars Aaron Boyd would score at 8:32, and again ten minutes later.

Shane Collins would  score for the Cougars just  22 seconds into the  3rd period,  and  team mate Radovan Bondra would  notch another marker  35 seconds later.  That  was  enough to have Portland make a  change in goalies,   taking Cole Kehler out,  and putting Shane Farkas between the pipes.

Cody Glass would score the lone  marker for the Winterhawks at 12:53 in the third period on a power play.

Both teams are  heading  to Portland  for  game three of the series.   That game is set  for Wednesday evening  at 7 p.m.

Tickets for Game 5 in this series ,  which will take place at the CN Centre,  will be available online as of 8 tonight.

Dan O’Connor will provide a more detailed wrap of the game tomorrow morning.



Ty Edmonds was definitely the first star of the game. So many great saves to keep Portland off the scoreboard until the Cougars were able to get things on track.

They were definitely skating harder and getting more of the bounces tonight as a result. A great team effort overall. Looking forward to game 5 next Saturday. GO CATS GO!!!!!!

Hopefully our best players start playing! Thank God for Edmonds and our 4th line
