Americans snap Silvertips’ 4-game win streak

Tri-City erases a 2-goal deficit en route to a 3-2 victory.

KENNEWICK —The Tri-City Americans erased an early 2-0 deficit and nipped the Everett Silvertips 3-2 on Friday at the Toyota Center, snapping Everett’s four-game winning streak and handing the Silvertips their first regulation loss in 16 contests.

Zack Andrusiak, who was acquired from Seattle in a Jan. 1 trade, scored 3 minutes, 51 seconds into the opening period in his first game as a Silvertip to provide Everett a 1-0 lead. The overage forward scored his 29th goal of the season off the assists from Connor Dewar and Bryce Kindopp.

Jackson Berezowski deposited his ninth goal of the season at the 7:12 mark of the first period for the Silvertips. Reece Vitelli and Justyn Gurney, who was playing his first game with Everett after being added to its roster Wednesday, were credited with the assists.

The Americans clipped Everett’s lead in half after Krystof Hrabik’s power-play goal with 1:03 remaining in the first period, and Aaron Hyman scored 3:23 remaining in the second period to tie the game.

Tri-City’s Blake Stevenson potted the game-winning goal at the 15:31 mark of the second period.

Everett struggled mightily with special teams, going 0-for-5 with the power play and allowing a goal on Tri-City’s lone chance with the man advantage.

Beck Warm picked up the win by turning away 37-of-39 shots.

Dustin Wolf stopped 15-of-18 shots for the Silvertips.
