Winterhawks thump Silvertips

Everett falls to Portland 5-1 for its second straight defeat.

PORTLAND, Ore. — The Everett Silvertips relented all five goals in the final 17 minutes of regulation en route to a 5-1 thumping courtesy of the Portland Winterhawks on Saturday at Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

After a tightly contested opening two periods, Joachim Blichfield broke the floodgates with a goal at the 3:56 mark in the third.

A slashing penalty from Robbie Holmes at 4:27 and a high sticking minor from Sahvan Khaira nine seconds later provided a 5-on-3 opportunity for the Winterhawks, which Jared Freadrich cashed in on at 5:05.

Cody Glass tacked on an insurance goal at even strength at 15:19 and Jake Gricius and Brendan De Jong tallied empty-net goals to provide the Winterhawks a 5-0 lead.

Rookie forward Jackson Berezowski recorded Everett’s lone goal with 15 seconds remaining. It was his 10th of the season.

The Silvertips racked up 24 minutes of penalties in the loss and went 0-for-5 on the power play.

Blichfield, a Sharks prospect, and Glass, a Golden Knights prospect, each finished with a goal and two assists to lead the Winterhawks.

Joel Hofer, who Portland acquired from Swift Current a day before the Western Hockey League’s trade deadline, stopped 32 of 33 shots in the winning effort.

Dustin Wolf blocked 27-of-30 shots for the Silvertips.
