T-Birds Squander Scoring Chances, Fall To Prince George

In their last three losses, Seattle (4-5-0-1) has surrendered 117 shots on goal, a byproduct of its issues on defense. With Ethan Bear hurt, Evan Wardley suspended and Shea Theodore still with the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks, the T-Birds are currently relying on younger players.
