Silvertips return from break with win over Chiefs

SPOKANE—There will be no immediate post Christmas Break hangover for the Everett Silvertips.

Everett maintained its first-half momentum in the first game back from the 12-day hiatus, edging the Spoaken Chiefs, 3-2, on Friday at the Spokane Arena. The Silvertips have won three straight and have claimed at least a point in 15 consecutive contests.

After Jack Finley put Spokane up early with a rebound goal at the 1:41 mark in the first period, Gage Goncalves potted his first career goal 1:21 into the second period to knot it at 1-1.

Connor Dewar tallied his 25th goal of the season on the power play with 5:59 remaining in the second. The Silvertips captain added an empty-netter with 1:39 remaining for his second of the night.

Bailey Brkin made 40 saves for the Chiefs.

Dustin Wolf stopped 14 for the Silvertips.

Everett was 1-for-3 on the power play and shut out Spokane in its four chances to dominate the special teams battle.
