The Portland Winterhawks are going back to the WHL Championship series.
The Hawks won their third straight western conference championship with a 4-1 victory over the Kamloops Blazers Friday night.
Nearly 10,000 fans packed the Rose Garden in what the team asked for, a "white out."
The Winterhawks await the winner of the eastern conference final between the Calgary Hitmen and the Edmonton Oil Kings.
The Championship series will begin Friday night, May 3, at the rose garden.
