LAST GAME (EVT 6 – SPO 5 (OT) / 1-28-18): – Connor Dewar tied the game in the last minute of regulation and buried the overtime winner, 1:10 elapsed to help lift the Everett Silvertips to a come-from-behind 6-5 victory in sudden death overtime, over the Spokane Chiefs before 4,187 fans in downtown Everett on Sunday in WHL action. Dewar tied the game with 23.2 seconds left in regulation on an extra attacker set-up which Patrick Bajkov helped out with an assist, part of a two-point game that pulled him to a tie for the Silvertips all-time lead in points with Zach Hamill (262). Dewar then finished the comeback on a 2-on-1 at the left post, stashing Wyatte Wylie’s cross-ice feed to complete a five point weekend in a three-game, three-day scenario.
