Theodore’s Shootout Goal Rescues Seattle From Potential Collapse

It was a game the Thunderbirds absolutely had to have after a 3-game losing skid left their grip on the No. 4 seed tenuous. Shea Theodore finished with three assists, Danny Mumaugh had 32 saves in his first start in eight games and Alexander Delnov tallied his 28th goal of the season to lift the T-Birds.

Seattle Looks Listless In 7-1 Loss To Kamloops

Seattle was hoping to close off a great month of December the right way, but got off to a disappointing start against the Blazers, a team that came in dead last in the B.C. division. Prior to Tuesday’s game, the T-Birds were 7-1-1-0 for the month.
