Rockets get even with Winterhawks

Kelowna edges Portland to tie Western Conferennce final at two games each

Without their top goal scorer in the lineup, the Kelowna Rockets found a way to get even with the Portland Winterhawks in the WHL’s Western Conference final.

Tyrell Goulborne scored the game winner on a power play at 9:16 of the second period as the Rockets edged the Winterhawks 3-2 Wednesday night at the Moda Center to even the best-of-seven series at two games each.

Centre Rourke Chartier, who leads the Rockets with eight playoff goals, is sidelined indefinitely after suffering an upper-body injury in Game 3.

Goaltender Jackson Whistle, who left Tuesday’s game after giving up four goals on 18 shots, was solid for the Rockets Wednesday making 40 saves.

After Chase De Leo scored 72 seconds into the game, the Rockets responded with three straight goals from Leon Draistail, Chance Braid and Goulbourne to take a 3-1 lead.

Nic Petan’s goal at 12:03 of the third pulled the Winterhawks to within one, but the Rockets shut the door in the third period.

The Rockets and Winterhawks, now tied 2-2, will meet for Game 5 Friday at Prospera Place.

Face off is 7:05 p.m.
