So if it gets there, the Hawks will play games 5 and 7 in the Memorial Coliseum. All of Everett's home games will be at Comcast Arena. Portland is 5-0 at home vs. Everett and 4-1 on the road. Portland goalie Mac Carruth's leg injury is being called a :"slight muscle pull." He should be ready for Friday.

-One of the pieces Portland gave Everett for Seth Jones last year: 16 year old Tyler Sandhu, got his first career hat trick on Sunday.
-Small Thoughts at Large has the Hawks winning in a sweep.
-In former Hawk news: Andrew Ference got a goal in the Boston Bruin's 4-1 win over Washington this weekend. Ference has 1 goal and 5 assists and is a +5 this season. The following clip is one of my favorie Ference moments:
