Silvertips hold off Spokane, run point streak to five games

Everett’s Connor Dewar collects his 100th career WHL point in the victory

SPOKANE — The Everett Silvertips concluded a three-game weekend with a measure of revenge.

The Tips, who lost at home to Spokane on Friday, returned the favor Sunday as they defeated the Chiefs 3-2 before 5,219 fans at Spokane Arena.

Everett (36-17-2-2, 76 points) has points in five straight games. Spokane (30-20-3-2, 65 points) saw its point streak end at 10 games.

Dustin Wolf got the start in net for Everett one night after Carter Hart tied the Western Hockey League record for career shutouts. Wolf was on his way to a shutout of his own, but the Chiefs scored twice in the final seven minutes to pull within one goal.

Wolf finished with 24 saves. Spokane’s Donovan Buskey saved 18 of the 21 shots he faced.

Everett led 2-0 after two periods and Connor Dewar’s wrister off the rush at 12:32 pushed the Tips’ lead to 3-0. It was Dewar’s 100th career WHL point.

But the Chiefs didn’t go quietly.

Jaret Anderson-Dolan converted seven seconds into a Spokane power play at 13:10, and Kailer Yamamoto pulled the Chiefs within one when he deflected in a goal at 17:07.

Wolf and the Silvertips managed to hold Spokane at bay for the final three minutes.

The game was scoreless for nearly two full periods.

Spencer Gerth finally broke the scoreless deadlock with a one-timer through Buskey’s legs at 17:11.

Riley Sutter then gave Everett a two-goal lead at 19:00 as Everett took the 2-0 lead into the final period.

Sutter and Yamamoto each had a goal and an assist for Everett.

Everett outshot Spokane 8-3 in a scoreless opening period. The Tips were unable to convert on a pair of power-play opportunities in the frame.

The Tips outshot Spokane 16-9 through the first two periods, but the Chiefs finished with a 17-5 shot advantage in the third and a 26-21 lead for the game.

Everett returns to action with a home-and-home series with Seattle next weekend, followed by a Sunday afternoon game at home against the Kamloops Blazers.
