The Portland Winterhawks ended the season on a bit of a sour note and for it, will now have their work cut out for them, especially when it comes to distance. This weekend, the Victoria Royals fell out of the fight for spot six as they dropped decisions to the Everett Silvertips and gave the Royals the eighth seed. It was a battle for the sixth spot between Portland and Tri-City with the Americans having three games in as many nights, while Hawks would have just two. Tri-City dropped an overtime game to the Spokane Chiefs on Friday, earning them just a point and keeping them behind the Portland Winterhawks by a single point.
