Last post for this morning. Can't move on to the frozen tundra in Chicago until we examine what happened last night on the frozen water of the Arena.
The win pushed Spokane into a tie with Seattle for second place in the WHL's U.S. Division as the Chiefs head out on an eight-game road trip. Tri-City dropped to fourth.
Seattle lost 3-2 in Brandon and are halfway through a six-game eastern swing.
