Hepatic portal system and the pulmonary circuit, Biology

Trace the flow of blood through the systemic circuit (hepatic portal system) and the pulmonary circuit, beginning and ending in the left ventricle.  You will be using named chambers, vessels, and valves.  Hint:  since you are starting and ending in the left ventricle, your first and last answer will be valves.
