Pre-Game Report: Game 4 - Giants vs. Winterhawks

The Vancouver Giants will look to stave off elimination when they host the Portland Winterhawks in Game 4 of their opening round series on Wednesday evening at the Pacific Coliseum. The G-Men trail the series 3-0 after dropping a 6-3 decision on Tuesday.

The Giants face a must win game on Wednesday after Tuesday's loss. The G-Men conceded two power play goals in the first period and trailed 4-0 at the midway mark of the second period before beating Portland net minder Brendan Burke three times in the second half of the game. Despite the loss, the Giants fired 28 shots on Burke's net after only managing a combined 31 shots in the opening two games south of the border.

Brendan Leipsic had another good game for the Winterhawks on Tuesday, leading the Portland squad with two goals and two assists. The 19-year-old Winnipeg native now has seven points in three playoff games, leaving him in third in WHL playoff scoring. The Portland power play has now scored four goals against the Giants in the last two games after only finding the net three times against Vancouver in the regular season series.
