Everett gives up two home games, to Swift Current and it heads to an elimination game on Friday

Everett – The Everett Silvertips couldn’t capitalize on their power play opportunities, and gave up a goal late in the second period. Swift Current would carry, and hold their 1-0 lead into the third period.

After Patrick Bajkov would be questionable for tonight’s game, he would end up playing in tonight’s game.

While Everett and Swift Current would start out the period playing a body to body game, it’d be carried through-out the game. With Everett giving Swift Current three power play advantages in the first period, the Tips penalty kill would be successful and would only allow four shots on goal throughout the period.

Everett would open the second period getting a power play 10 seconds in. Everett would be unsuccessful in all five power plays in tonight’s game. Colby Sissons(5) would get the puck from a broken play, and get it past Hart to seal the game winning goal at 14:35.

With the third period being opened up, and Everett trailing 1-0 it was a do or die period for Everett. Neither Swift Current or Everett would go on a power play advantage during the third period. Nearing the final two minutes of play, the Tips pulled goalie Carter Hart to get the 6th man attacker. Everett was unsuccessful with the 6th man attacker on the ice, and failed to make a come back.
