LAST TIME OUT:
EVT 3 – SEA 1 (4-2-21):
Everett quickly got back to their winning form, taking the second of a back-to-back set against the Seattle Thunderbirds by a 3-1 score to move to 6-1-0-0 on the season. After trailing 1-0 early, Silvertips defenseman Gianni Fairbrother netted his first goal of the season on a Tips power play in the second period to knot the score 1-1. Tips forward Jacob Wright scored 49 seconds into the third period and the Tips defence did the rest in limiting the Seattle offense to only 20 shots on goal in a 3-1 win.
