The Silvertips have long been living under the Spokane Arena curse (much more on that later in the week). Everett has lost 15 straight games in Spokane, dating back to the final day of the 2009-10 season. Only one player on the current roster (Joshua Winquist) has ever celebrated following a Tips game in Spokane.
Wednesday may be Everett’s best chance to end the curse. For the first time in a long time the Tips go into a game in Spokane with a better record than the Chiefs. In addition, Spokane is reeling, having won just once in its past six games.
