Silvertips erupt in 3rd period in 4-1 win over Prince George

PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. — Everett scored four unanswered goals to dispatch Prince George, 4-1, on Tuesday at the CN Centre to sweep the doubleheader from the Cougars over back-to-back days.

The Silvertips (41-14-1-2) capped a five-games-in-six-nights stretch, four on the road. Everett emerged with seven points out of a possible 10.

The Cougars have now lost 17 consecutive games.

Bryce Kindopp put the Silvertips ahead, 1-0, 3:46 into the third period with his 34th goal of the season.

Reece Vitelli tacked on an insurance goal at the 17:36 mark of the third period, then added an empty net goal at 18:28 to push the Silvertips’ lead to 4-1.

Former Silvertip Ethan Browne broke up the scoring at 5:56 in the first with a 5-on-3 power play goal, but Zack Andrusiak eventually tied it with his 36th goal of the season at 17:29 in the second period.

Silvertips goaltender Dustin Wolf made 16 saves to earn his 36th win of the season.

Prince George netminder Taylor Gauthier stopped 33-of-36 shots in the losing effort.

The Silvertips climbed up to 85 points in the Western Conference standings, four ahead of the idle Vancouver, but the Giants have two games in hand.
