Prince George, B.C.- The Prince George Cougars  have  downed  the Portland Winterhawks  6-1 to take a two  to one  game lead in their playoff series.

The Winterhawks drew first blood,  when Skyler McKenzie  scored just 14 seconds into  the start of the game, but  that would be  the only  goal the Winterhawks could muster.

The  Cougars Jansen Harkins would  score at 8:26 to even it up,  and then Kody McDonald would score the go ahead goal at 12:36 of the first period.  Colby McCauley  would add some  insurance  at  the 17:42 mark.

At the 12:03 mark of the second period ,the Cougars were on the  power play. Tate Olson would  take a lone shot from the point and the puck  would get past Winterhawks  goalie  Cole Kehler to push the Cougars to  a 4-1 lead.

The Cougars would continue  the pressure in the third,  with Brogan O’Brien  scoring  to make it 5-1, the first goal he has scored since  January 28th.  Just a few moments later,  Jansen Harkins would score again to make it 6-1.

The Winterhawks then pulled  goalie Cole Kehler,  and put in Shane Farkas for the balance of the game.

.The Cougars Dan O’Connor will provide a full game  recap  tomorrow morning.
