LANGLEY, B.C. — The Vancouver Giants scored four unanswered goals in the second and third period and held on for a 5-3 win over the Everett Silvertips late Friday night at Langley Events Centre.
Jackson Berezowski gave the Silvertips a 1-0 lead with a goal at 3:20 in the second period.
But consecutive goals from Nicco Camazzola, Evan Toth and two from Adam Hall put the Giants up 4-1.
Everett mounted a third-period rally with another goal from Berezowski and a score from Alex Swetlikoff, but Payton Mount fired home an empty-netter at 19:32 to put the game out of reach.
Braden Holt started in goal for Everett (39-10-3-5)) and stopped 22 of 26 shots before being replaced by Koen MacInnes who saved the only shot he faced.
Connor Martin stopped 32 of 35 shots for Vancouver (23-29-4-0).
The two teams meet again on Saturday in Everett, with puck drop scheduled for 6:05 p.m.
