Silvertips Pull Away Late for 6-3 Victory over Americans

Posted: Updated:

Kennewick, WA – The Tri-City Americans (19-20-2-2, 42 pts.) entered the third period of play locked in a 2-2 tie, but a four goal explosion by the Everett Silvertips (24-13-5-1, 54 pts.) in the final frame gave Everett a 6-3 victory Friday night at Comcast Arena.

Both of the Americans' trade deadline acquisitions made their debuts for the team, with Jackson Playfair and Josh Thrower joining the team in Everett after being acquired prior to Friday's 11 a.m. PDT Trade Deadline.

Evan Sarthou got the start in goal for the Americans, keeping his team in the game until the Silvertips pulled away late in the third period. The 16-year-old net minder made 34 saves on the night.

The Silvertips opened the scoring at 10:16 of the first period, after a turnover in front of Sarthou. Josh Winquist pick up the puck and found Patrick Bajkov by the left post, scoring on the back door play.

The Silvertips outshot the Americans 13 to seven in the first 20 minutes, but Justin Hamonic's second goal of the season at 17:56, knotted the game at one, heading into the first intermission. The goal marked the first multi-goal season of Hamonic's WHL career.

The Silvertips regained its one goal advantage at the seven minute mark of the second period, when Kohl Bauml deflected Ben Betker's high point shot down past Sarthou. The officials reviewed the play to see if the puck had been knocked in with a high stick, but the goal was upheld.

Everett's lead lasted only 3:48, as Devon McAndrews scored his second of the season after picking up the loose puck following a big collision at the blue line, beating Cotton with a wrist shot underneath his glove. Cotton was replaced by Austin Lotz following the goal at 10:48. Normally Everett's backup goaltender, Cotton allowed two goals on nine shots.

A Brian Williams tripping penalty at 2:58 of the third period would prove to be costly as Jujahr Khaira capitalized on the man advantage, giving the Silvertips a 3-2 lead. A lead that Everett would never relinquish.  

Winquist's 27th goal of the season at 7:04 gave the Silvertips a two-goal lead. But, that cushion would be short lived with Lucas Nickles scoring his 14th goal of the season on a wraparound just 17 seconds later.

Tri-City had several strong shifts in the offensive zone, as the team looked to tie the game for the third time. But, the Americans were unable to put anymore pucks past Lotz.

Goals by Carson Stadnyk at 14:17 and Khaira's second goal of the night at 16:01, put the game away for the Silvertips, handing Tri-City its third loss in four meetings between these two teams.

The Americans return to the Toyota Center tomorrow night, where it will conclude the weekend home and home against the Silvertips for a 7:05 p.m. faceoff. Tickets are available through all Ticketmaster outlets, including the Toyota Center box office, all Fred Meyer locations, or online at ticketmaster.com.
