The Tips are heading into Game 4 leading the series (2-1) looking to capitalize on their last road win, and grab another one @ the ShoWare center in Kent, Wa.
Important things to know heading into tonight’s game. After serving a one game suspension for Kneeing, Riley Sutter will be back in the line up. The Silvertips have confirmed that they recalled forward Ty Westgard, from the Surrey Eagles of the British Columbia Hockey League. Westgard will wear jersey #12.
Seattle was able to shut down Pilon and Bajkov, but couldn’t shut down Fonteyne. Fonteyne scored 2 goals on Tuesday night (3/27), and laid a huge hit on Sami Moilanen with less than a minute to go in the first period. Fonteyne explained his thoughts right before his hit; “I was backchecking and I saw the puck kind of squirt out,” Fonteyne told the [Everett Herald] “He’s a really skilled player, so I knew that if I didn’t step up and try and take the body he would probably make me look silly. So I just tried to stand my ground and just tried to get a piece of him.” Sami Moilanen is unexpected to play tonight.
