EVERETT, Wash. — Jackson Berezowski played Captain Clutch for the Everett Silvertips Saturday night, potting the game-winning goal in overtime against the Portland Winterhawks for a 4-3 victory.
Jacob Hoffrogge opened the scoring with a one-time goal at 1:47 in the second period. While Portland would tie it at 8:01 thanks to Marek Alscher, Austin Roest would grab back the lead at 14:05 with his team-leading 17th goal of the year- a redirection of a Ty Gibson shot from the point.
Portland surged ahead in the third period, with Josh Zakreski and Robbie Fromm-Delorme potting the game-tying and go-ahead goals for the Winterhawks. With time winding down, Ryan Hofer banged in an Olen Zellweger rebound at 14:11 to even up the score and force extra time.
Everett drew a crucial powerplay opportunity in the overtime period, and at 2:08 with a 4-on-3 chance, Hofer again crashed the net, generating a rebound for Berezowski to bury.
Braden Holt stopped 44 of 47 in the win, his 11th of the season. By assisting on the overtime winner, Olen Zellweger logged his 100th career WHL assist.
