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.
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.
