Another tough one for Chiefs

Can anyone figure out the Spokane Chiefs?

Playing short-handed, they run their Western Hockey League losing streak to five games, including a New Year’s Eve loss at Tri-City, before beating Vancover (with this nice blog item) and Seattle back-to-back on the road with backup Michael Tadjedeh in goal.

With Tyler Johnson and Jared Cowen playing against each other for World Junior gold Tuesday night, Spokane will still be shorthanded when league-leading Saskatoon, fresh off a win at Tri-City, comes to the Arena Tuesday night. The Blades (28-7-1-3) have won five in a row and are 4-0 in their swing through the U.S. Division.Saskatoon now is first overall, with 60 points, one more than the Americans (29-10-0-1), who are 7-1-0-1 in their last nine outings.
