Three takeaways from the Silvertips’ 2-1 overtime win over Seattle

Everett 2, Seattle 1 (OT)

Connor Dewar netted his fourth goal of the season 17 seconds into overtime to lift the Silvertips (3-2-0) over Seattle (2-1-1) on Friday in the annual ‘Pink the Rink’ game.

Here are three takeaways:

Goal-scoring woes continue: Everett head coach Dennis Williams has stated repeatedly throughout the start of the season that his team has had plenty of scoring chances, but the Silvertips just need to bury more of them. Friday wasn’t any different, as Everett outshot Seattle 41-17, but could only muster two goals in 60 minutes, 17 seconds.

Strong play in the defensive end, great puck possession and solid goaltending has largely willed Everett to three wins. But the Silvertips will need more from its scoring group moving forward.

Thankfully, Dewar has experienced a sweltering start of the season, posting seven points over five games. He’s on pace for 95 points and 54 goals, which would be an incredible season from the Minnesota Wild prospect.

Division dominance: Since dropping two games to open the season to Vancouver — a popular choice to win the B.C. Division — Everett is riding a three-game winning streak, all against U.S. division opponents. It’s a small sample size and rosters will inevitably change, but the Silvertips appear to matchup well with the rest of the U.S. divison. Although Everett has yet to go toe-to-toe with Spokane, which is the favorite to claim the division, led by Devils’ first-round pick in 2018, defenseman Ty Smith. The Sivertips’ first matchup with Spokane is on Nov. 3 at Spokane Arena.

Breakout game from Kindopp: 19-year-old forward Bryce Kindopp, who silently had a nice season with 24 goals and 12 assists last year, posted his first two point of the season on Friday. Kindopp could be a nice source of secondary scoring as the season progresses.
