Silvertips rout Americans for 11th straight win

Rookie goalie Braden Holt earns the shutout in Everett’s 6-0 victory.

EVERETT — The Everett Silvertips peppered Tri-City’s net with 59 shots en route to a 6-0 thumping of the visiting Americans on Friday at Angel of the Winds Arena.

The Silvertips extended their winning streak to 11 games with the victory and leapfrogged Portland in the U.S. Division standings to take a one-point lead, with the Winterhawks idle on Friday.

Jake Christiansen and Bryce Kindopp, who recently signed NHL entry-level contracts with the Columbus Blue Jackets and Anaheim Ducks, respectively, led the way for Everett.

Christiansen potted a pair of goals and added an assist while Kindopp posted a goal and an assist.

Cole Fonstad opened the scoring with his first-period goal and Brendan Lee put the Silvertips up 2-0 in the second with a snipe.

Wyatte Wylie scored with 4.3 seconds left in the third to cap it off.

Jacob Wright and Jalen Price each chipped in two assists.

Silvertips rookie goaltender Braden Holt recorded his first career shutout with 16 saves.
