Game 5 preview, Home ice advantage

The Everett Silvertips are seeking to finish off round 1 of the series by winning tonight’s game. The Silvertips now lead the series 3-1, you must win four games to win the first round of the 2018 WHL Playoffs.

Some things to know heading into tonight’s game. Donovan Neuls took a huge hit from Sutter during yesterdays game and was helped off the ice, he came back for a few shifts in the first and second period but didn’t return during the third period. There’s no confirmation if he will play in tonight’s game, If Everett wins tonights game this would be his last WHL game.

Thunderbirds head coach told [Andy Eide of 710 ESPN Seattle] “It’s obviously tough,” O’Dette said about losing Neuls. “He’s a key guy for our team. He does everything for us. A hit from behind, I guess that’s allowed. A couple of hits that they get away with but it was a dangerous hit.”

Ethan O’Rourke and Ty Westgard were game-time decisions for yesterdays game. It will be interesting to see if Westgard will play tonight. Everett needs to play how they did last night in Kent, Everett needs to play 60 min of good, hard, physical hockey and make Seattle “feel them” again.
