The Portland Winter Hawks did something Sunday the Chiefs couldn't do the night before: win at Chilliwack. The Hawks hope to use that momentum in their games this week.
Medicine Hat finished a good week in the Northwest on Sunday when the Tigers defeated Tri-City.
The Chiefs' lost weekend dropped them to 12th in the latest WHL rankings. That and more can be found on Jeff Bunch's blog.
