In the second period,  a delay of game  penalty  to the Cougars,  gave  Portland the man advantage,  and they would  take make good on  that break  and would score,  taking the lead in the game 3 – 2.

The lead lasted about  seven minutes,  when  at the 15:46 mark, the Cougars  would tie it up ,  when Nikita Papugaev  scored on the power play.  Moments later,  Radovan Bondra would  put the puck in the net  to give the Cougars  a 4-3  lead.

The third period would see  the Winterhawks  Matt Revel score  at  8:54 to tie it up at 4.  Then Revel would do it again, giving Portland a 5-4 lead  when he scored with just 4 minutes left.

Dan O’Conner will provide a complete post game  review  first thing in the morning.

Game 5 is  set for Saturday night at the CN Centre.
