LAST TIME OUT:
EVT 1 – SEA 0 (OT) (10-12-19): Gage Goncalves’ steal and breakaway goal at 2:21 ended a thriller in downtown Everett as the Everett Silvertips defeated the Seattle Thunderbirds, 1-0 in sudden death overtime before a sellout crowd of 8,256 at Angel of the Winds Arena on Saturday in WHL action. The Tips, drawing their largest crowd for Pink The Rink in seven years, staged the game as a fundraising initiative to support breast cancer prevention and treatment measures in Snohomish County, had Dustin Wolf earn his 13th career shutout on 35 saves while the Tips extended a regular season home shutout streak of Seattle to 127:21.
SHOTS: SEA 35 | EVT 25
