Bow made 51 saves backstopping the Thunderbirds to a pair of road victories against the Kelowna Rockets for a 2-0 series lead in the WHL’s Western Conference Championship.  On Friday night he earned first star honours in Game 1 with 23 saves as part of the 2-1 victory, then stopped 28 shots on Saturday night in Game 2 preserving the 3-2 win.  The series now shifts to Seattle for Game’s 3 and 4 on Tuesday and Wednesday night respectively.
