There's been a trend of tr 1st period being pretty even, the 2nd being dominated by one team and the 3rd being dominated by the other team. You've basically just had to hope that you make the most of your time with the momentum.
I'd say the trend has continued. 1st period was even and Portland definitely controlled the 2nd. Hopefully it's the Oil Kings turn and they can cash in.
Biggest problem that the Oil Kings have had is keeping Portland in check for a full 60 because their defence gets so bloody tired.
