Silvertips edge Americans in final game before break

Everett jumps out to a big lead and hangs on to win 4-3.

EVERETT — In the final game before the Western Hockey League’s Christmas break, the Everett Silvertips withstood a late rally from the Tri-City Americans and hung on to win, 4-3, on Wednesday at Angel of the Winds Arena.

The Silvertips led 4-1 after Dawson Butt’s power-play goal at 16:39 in the second period, but Tri-City added two goals to cut the deficit to one late.

A trio of defensemen each recorded multi-point games to lead the Silvertips. Jake Christiansen scored a goal and added an assist and Ronan Seeley and Wyatte Wylie chipped in two assists each.

Gage Goncalves scored an even-strength goal at 4:14 in the first period to open up the scoring, then the Silvertips scored three on the power play, courtesy of Christiansen, Jackson Berezowski and Butt to put Everett up 4-2 after two periods.

Paycen Bjorklund scored twice, once in the first period on the power play and once in the third, and Samuel Stewart scored in the second period to round out the Americans’ goal-scorers.

Keegan Karki made 15-of-18 saves for the Silvertips (24-6-2-0).

Beck Warm stopped 38 shots for the Americans (12-15-3-1).
