Weekend Bares Mixed Results For Thunderbirds

It was an important weekend of road games for Seattle after it rebounded from consecutive losses with a 2-0 homestand over divisional rivals Tri-City and Spokane to begin the week. Yet, the T-Birds played like two completely different teams.

Seattle Penalty Kill Struggling
