David Tendeck made 36 saves, but his defensive efforts couldn't be matched by offensive gains for the Vancouver Giants Saturday night in Portland.

The Langley-based Vancouver Giants lost 3-0 to the Winterhawks.

Tendeck was called into action early in the first period, making a beautiful glove stop on Cody Glass from close range.

Glass went on to open the scoring for the Winterhawks on a power play a few minutes later when he wired a one-timer past Tendeck from the left wing after a pretty feed from Keegan Iverson.

Joachim Blichfeld made it 2-0 with less than two minutes remaining in the second period, and Ty Ronning almost put the G-Men on the board in the dying seconds of the period when he had a wide-open chance in front but hit the post.

Ryan Hughes added a goal on a rebound in the final frame.

The Winterhawks outshot the Giants 39-12.

Vancouver was 0-for-4 on the power play while Portland went 1-for-8.

The Giants will be back in action on Friday, March 10, when they’ll head to the Okanagan to face the Kelowna Rockets.

Vancouver’s next home game will be on Tuesday, March 14, when the Victoria Royals visit the Langley Events Centre for Don Cherry Night.
