Chiefs start slow, end with win


A slow start didn't bode well for Spokane in the Arena on Tuesday.

Neither did an early penalty and a power-play goal.

But then Judd Blackwater got going. His two second-period goals ignited the Chiefs' offense in their 6-4 comeback win over the Portland Winter Hawks.

The two scores were the first of the season for Blackwater.


The Tri-City Americans are off to their best trading for 19-year-old David Reekie.
