Everett will need to play much better against a Portland team that has thrived on the road all season, setting the WHL record for road wins in the process.
Mac Carruth has got to play much better in game 4. Two of the three Everett goals are probably ones he wants back. He seemed very frustrated with himself after the tips made it 5-3 in the 3rd.
