AFTERMATH: More Offense, Please
By Staci C. – Silvertips Staff Writer
EVERETT, Wash. – The keyword to tonight’s 8-2 win over Kelowna was “response.”
After a lackluster first period where they led 2-1 but were trailing in shots, the Everett Silvertips came out flying for the second and third to solidify their first place spot in the Western Conference.
“In the first we were very inconsistent,” said Silvertips head coach Dennis Williams. “I wasn’t very happy with our first. I think they out worked us, out competed us, their puck touches were stronger than ours. We were chasing the game although we had a 2-1 lead…. when we evaluate our periods, it’s not so much the score but how we played.”
“You can play a lot of games where you win and don’t play well and vice versa. We didn’t think we played a good first period, they [Kelowna] are well coached, a good hockey club and we know they’d come out looking to get a split but we couldn’t be satisfied with the way we played.”
Pilon’s 4 point night set a career high for most points in a game.
