PLAYERS: Michael St.Croix
Michael St. Croix (4th, 2011) and the Edmonton Oil Kings took Game One from the Portland Winterhawks by a score of 4-1. St. Croix was held off the scoresheet in the victory. Game Two is tonight in Portland at 7pm. On the other end of the continent, Sam Noreau (6th, 2011) and the Baie-Comeau Drakkar did not fair so well in their Game One, losing to Halifax 4-0. Noreau was a -1 in the contest with 2 PIMs. Considering his assignments and the fact that he has to deal with Jonathan Drouin and Nate MacKinnon, that’s really not that bad. Neither Drouin nor MacKinnon registered goals. Tweet

It makes sense when you stop to think about it as players who come from winning teams already have the mindset where they expect to win. Last year Ranger...

A view from the top

Michael St. Croix, Griffin Reinhart (Edmonton Oil Kings) I kind of owe Graham Kendricks the Director of Media and Public Relations a bigger thank you than I realize as I got to sit upstairs in the auxiliary press box for game 1 of the WHL Finals between the Portland Winterhawks and the Edmonton Oil Kings. The auxiliary press box for the Rose Garden is located at top of the arena...

Textbook Buttkicking

Seth Jones (Portland Winterhawks) Everything that the Portland Winterhawks did wrong in game 1 of their WHL finals with the Edmonton Oil Kings, they did right in game 2 leading to a very dominating 3-0 win to tie their series at 1-1. This was a textbook case of how to kick a team's butt in a playoff game. Pick something from the number of shots that the Portland defense...
