N.A. Juniors Game Night: 3/5

WHL
Seattle Thunderbirds 5 @ Prince George Cougars 2
G Riku Helenius, SEA: Win, stopped 22 of 24 shots
C/W Dana Tyrell, PG: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM (tripping)

After battling a knee sprain and a tandem goaltender on a hot streak, Helenius made his first start since February 20 and earned a win for Seattle. Seattle sits in fourth in the Western Conference, four points ahead of Everett and five ahead of Kelowna. Tyrell and PG have long been out of the running for a playoff spot. Tyrell has just two assists in his last five games.

Vancouver Giants 4 @ Kelowna Rockets 1
G Torrie Jung, KEL: Did not play

Vancouver outshot Kelowna 35-17 in the game. Jung has not started a game since February 23 and has not won a start since January 30. Kelowna is currently in sixth in the Western Conference with a secured playoff spot. They could move up as high as fourth with a strong finish, but will more likely be the fifth or sixth seed.

The WHL regular season ends March 16.
