BLOG: Silvertips return to practice on the eve of Game 3

The Everett Silvertips were back at practice Monday in preparation for Tuesday’s Game 3 against the Seattle Thunderbirds in Kent.

Riley Sutter wasn’t listed on the WHL discipline list prior to practice, but he didn’t skate with his normal linemates during special teams work. Afterward head coach Dennis Williams told me Sutter is suspended for Tuesday’s game and later in the afternoon he appeared on the WHL list. That makes Bryce Kindopp’s play all the more critical for Game 3.

Here was Sutter’s hit:

Williams again reiterated that he thought the team played well for the most part in Saturday’s 5-4 overtime loss in Game 2.

“I thought we had a pretty good game,” he said. “We have to clean up some areas in our D-zone, which, again when you’re playing this type of game and in the playoffs it needs to be tighter, right?… I thought our energy was pretty good and I definitely thought our compete (level) was there, and that’s the way it goes. I thought we battled to the end to tie it up and (it took) a great play by (Zack) Andrusiak at the end to win it. That’s how quickly things can change.”
