Future looks bright after Chiefs’ best season since 2011

When you look at how the Spokane Chiefs’ season ended – in five games to the top-seeded Vancouver Giants – you can point to two stats: one power play goal in the series, and just one point for star defenseman Ty Smith.

Chiefs at home hoping to erase 2-0 deficit against Giants

The Spokane Chiefs were 20 minutes away Saturday from earning a road split to open the Western Conference Championship against the Vancouver Giants. But in just 3:21, their 2-0 lead vanished as Vancouver scored four unanswered goals to win 4-2 and take a 2-0 lead in the series. Game 3 is tonight at the Arena.

Chiefs collapse in third period, drop Game 2 at Vancouver

LANGLEY, B.C. – Up 2-0 with 20 minutes to go, the Spokane Chiefs appeared to be in prime position to earn a road split heading home for Games 3 and 4. The Vancouver Giants had other intentions, unleashing a dominant third period while the Chiefs were left wondering what had just happened.

Spokane Chiefs’ Ty Smith skates the extra mile when called upon

With Filip Kral suspended for Game 5 against Everett, Ty Smith took over Kral’s spot on the second power-play unit. That meant Smith played just about every second of the Chiefs’ five power plays, in addition to his usual number of shifts on the team’s top defensive pair, alongside Nolan Reid.

Defensive-minded Spokane Chiefs take 3-0 playoff series lead over Everett

Conventional wisdom says the Spokane Chiefs shouldn’t be up 3-0 in their second-round playoff series with the Everett Silvertips. The Chiefs have been outshot in all three games against the U.S. Division champs and are up against what is normally a stout defense and an all-star goaltender in Dustin Wolf. Yet here they are, with a commanding 3-0 lead in the series thanks to a 3-1 win in Game 3 at the Arena on Wednesday night.
