The Everett Silvertips won their 12th game in a row at the expense of the Spokane Chiefs with a 3-2 final on Sunday night in front of 5,812 in Everett's Comcast Arena.  Spokane's record falls to 27-17-3-1 with 58 points, four points behind the Portland Winterhawks for third place in the U.S. Division.

Everett scored three times in the first period; Shane Harper on a wrap around at 11:23 and a pair by Kellen Tochkin at 16:48 and a power play at 17:41.  After the last tally, James Reid was replaced in net by Michael Tadjdeh who finished the night with 17 saves in 17 chances.

Mitch Holmberg scored the Chiefs first goal at 10:30 of the second as he swept in a rebound of a Dominik Uher shot from the backboards and into the net.  It was the 16-year-old's third goal of the season.

Spokane tallied the lone goal of the third when Levko Koper scored on a deflection of a Tyler Johnson pass at 17:06.  Koper scored his 20th of the year as he went between the pads of Kent Simpson, who earned the game's first star with 34 saves.

Overall, the Chiefs outshot Everett 36-30 and each team finished 1-2 on the power play.

Two more games remain on the Chiefs stretch of eight in a row on the road; Tuesday night in Kamloops and Wednesday night in Chilliwack.

Spokane returns home on Friday against Seattle and Saturday versus Kootenay.
