Despite disparity in shots, it took Faddenâ€™s power play goal at the 15:28 mark of the third period to break a 2-2 tie. The â€˜Canes added an empty netter in the final minute to give the game its final score. Fadden is now tied for second in the league in goals (6) and third in points (11).

D Michael Ward, LEW: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG

Brandon Wheat Kings 5 @ Lethbridge Hurricanes 2
C Mitch Fadden, LET: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM
After a five game point streak to start the season, Fadden has gone two games with no points. He was slated to move off of a line with 06-07 91-point scorer Zach Boychuk and onto a line with Yashar Farmanara, who came to Lethbridge with Fadden from Seattle two seasons ago. Boychuk and Fadden both have 9 points this year.
Everett Silvertips 5 @ Portland Winter Hawks 3
D Dane Crowley, EVT: 0-0-0, E, 6 PIM
Everett and Portland traded road wins to start the weekend. Crowley had minor and double-minor penalties for roughing.
Swift Current Broncos 6 @ Prince George Cougars 1
C/W Dana Tyrell, PG: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
The Cougars are now 1-5-0-0 on the year and get to play WHL powerhouse Calgary Sunday.
Helenius got his first night-off of the season as Seattle, somewhat remarkably, lost their 12th shootout in a row.
Tri-City Americans 2 @ Prince George Cougars 5
C/W Dana Tyrell, PG: 0-3-3, E, 0 PIM, *Second Star*
The Cougars got revenge on the Americans by winning the second of a back-to-back set in Prince George. The victory was their first of the year after four losses. Tyrell has six points (two goals) in three games since returning from the Norfolk Admirals' AHL camp.
Spokane Chiefs 0 @ Everett Silvertips 4
D Dane Crowley, EVT: Did Not Play
Everett won their first game of the season, and like Prince George, the win came after four losses. Crowley did not play as he was in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan due to a death in the family. The Tips released one of their six overagers yesterday, but that still leaves five fighting for three allowed spots. Crowley is one of those five remaining.
On Sunday at the Chilled Ponds Ice Sports Complex in Chesapeake, Radek Smolenak scored the game-tying and go-ahead goals to propel Team White past Team Blue 6-4 in the Admiralsâ€™ annual Blue vs. White intra-squad scrimmage game.
