The Portland Winterhawks' losing streak has reached three games.

After weekend losses at Kelowna and Kamloops, the Hawks traveled to Everett and lost to the Silvertips on a late goal, 3-2.

The Silvertips, the U.S. Division's first-place team, moved to 30-16-2-2. The Hawks fell to 25-24-2-0, and sit only four points ahead of Tri-City for the eighth and final Western Hockey League Western Conference playoff berth.

Rihards Bukarts, taking advantage of a turnover by goalie Carter Hart, scored 5:05 into the game for a 1-0 Portland lead.

Dawson Leedahl's goal tied it, and Silvertips took a 2-1 lead on a power-play goal by Connor Dewar. But, less than two minutes before the end of the second period, Dominic Turgeon's second-effort goal tied it.

It remained tied until 3:52 left, when Everett's Brian King beat Adin Hill for the go-ahead goal. Portland pulled Hill for the extra attacker, but the Silvertips held on.

It was a tight game — only 24 shots for each team.

The Hawks play Seattle, 7 p.m. Friday at Moda Center on George Morlan Plumbing Supply Mascot Night.
