A good day to end a losing streak


The losing streak is over.

And the Chiefs aren’t in last place.

Derek Ryan’s third-period power-play goal lifted the Chiefs to a 4-3 win over U.S. Division cellar-dweller Portland at the Arena Wednesday night.

You can read Dave Trimmer’s story here and there’s more on Jeff Bunch’s Chiefs blog.

The Chiefs home stand continues Friday night when they host Kelowna (7 p.m.; 790-AM).

In other WHL U.S. Division action last night, the Everett Silvertips won their sixth consecutive game. Tri-City also won over Chilliwack, 4-3 in overtime, but there isn’t a story yet on the Herald’s web site.
