PORTLAND -- The Spokane Chiefs stayed alive in their best-of-seven playoff series against the Portland Winterhawks with a 4-3 win in game six on Monday night.

The series is now tied at three games apiece. The two teams return Spokane for game seven on Wednesday. The puck is set to drop at 7pm at Veterans Memorial Arena. Tickets go on sale at the arena box office on Tuesday at 9am.

Levko Koper scored twice for the Chiefs, while Kyle Beach and Kenton Miller also registered goals for Spokane. Koper's second tally at the 12:32 mark in the second period counts as the game-winner. Tyler Johnson picked up an assist on that goal for one of his three helpers on the night.

Portland actually outshot the Chiefs 43-37, but Spokane goalie James Reid was stellar in net. One of his 40 stops was a beautiful glove save in the final minute of the game to secure the win.

The visiting team has won every game of the series so far. Going back to the regular season, Portland is undefeated (7-0) at Veterans Memorial Arena this year.
