UPDATED: Thu., April 18, 2019, 5:06 p.m.

With Filip Kral suspended for Game 5 against Everett, Ty Smith took over Kral’s spot on the second power-play unit. That meant Smith played just about every second of the Chiefs’ five power plays, in addition to his usual number of shifts on the team’s top defensive pair, alongside Nolan Reid.

Defensive-minded Spokane Chiefs take 3-0 playoff series lead over Everett

UPDATED: Wed., April 10, 2019, 11:30 p.m.

Conventional wisdom says the Spokane Chiefs shouldn’t be up 3-0 in their second-round playoff series with the Everett Silvertips. The Chiefs have been outshot in all three games against the U.S. Division champs and are up against what is normally a stout defense and an all-star goaltender in Dustin Wolf. Yet here they are, with a commanding 3-0 lead in the series thanks to a 3-1 win in Game 3 at the Arena on Wednesday night.
