The Everett Silvertips seized momentum back with a 2-0 win in Game 3 Tuesday night in Victoria and have a chance to push the Royals to the brink tonight with Game 5 looming Friday back at Xfinity Arena.
Missing defenseman Scott Walford and forward Jack Walker clearly hindered Victoria Tuesday. In particular Walker’s absence on the power play meant the Royals went 0-for-3 on the man advantage after scoring two power-play goals in each of the first two games of the series.
Absence of Jack Walker loomed large tonight on Victoria's power play. 10/31 goals and 22/41 assists came on PP during regular season
