Thrashers prospect Levko Koper had a natural hat trick and four points and Lightning prospect Tyler Johnson had a goal and three points to lead Spokane to a big 8-3 home win over Portland. Koper was a seventh round selection of Atlanta in 2009. This game got predictably rough in the third period, but only one fighting major occurred. Game 5 is back in Portland Saturday night.
