-4-12-1-0 record vs. the B.C. Division with three games left to play.
-17-9-1-0 record within the U.S. Division with 13 games left to play.
-4-2 record vs. East Division (all home games).
-Six games left vs. Central Division (all road games).
-The record vs. the B.C. Division baffles me. Portland was in all four games vs. Kelowna, though that team appears to like playing the same style as Portland and has more skilled forwards, which could've been the overall difference. Portland actually outplayed Kamloops in three of those four games, yet could only find the one win.
-The Winterhawks have three games left against the B.C. (one with Vancouver and two with Victoria) and with almost half of Vancouver's roster plagued by injuries, they should get three of the four games in that specific season series.
-The Victoria games are at home and Portland should have Adin Hill going, unlike the two games in Victoria to start the season.
-17 wins out of 27 games in a tough U.S. Division is very impressive. If they keep that pace up, they should win eight or nine of their last 13 inter-divisional games, for a total of 25 or 26 wins in 40 games. A lot of those games are against the one team in the U.S., Portland has a losing record against (Seattle) though.
-Winning records have already been sealed for the season series against Spokane and Tri-City.
-Overall, Portland has played really well against U.S. Division teams and thus would really like to stay within the U.S. bracket, not stray over as a wild-card in the B.C. bracket (where they are currently slotted).
-The six-game road trip through Alberta could go a long way in determining where exactly the Hawks will be slotted for the playoffs.
