Everett Silvertips

The Everett Silvertips shut out 5-0.

The Everett Silvertips season is over after a drubbing by the Seattle Thunderbirds at ShoWare Center in Kent Saturday night. Here’s the recap of their final game…

Facing elimination for the second straight night after Friday’s decisive Game 4 win, the Everett Silvertips saw their season come to an end with a 5-0 loss to the Seattle Thunderbirds in Game 5 of their first-round playoff series Saturday night at the ShoWare Center.  The Silvertips are eliminated from playoff contention after falling four games to one in the best-of-seven series, while the Thunderbirds advance to face Kelowna in the second round.

Only 24 hours after exploding for six goals in Game 4, the Silvertips were unable to light the lamp in Game 5.  Austin Lotz (1-4) kept Everett in the game until the third period however, finishing with 26 saves in a game that remained scoreless for nearly 33 minutes.  For the first time in the series, the ‘Tips were outshot 31-24 in Game 5.

Neither team registered a shot on goal until nearly four minutes into the first period, but both teams ended up generating double-digit shot totals as the period remained even.  Goaltender Austin Lotz had the best save of the period in its final minute, diving across the crease to deny a rebound chance and keep the game scoreless.  Shots were 11-10 in favor of the ‘Tips after the first 20 minutes.

Scoring chances were at a premium through most of the second period as Seattle went on to outshoot the Silvertips 9-5.  The T-Birds looked prime to take the lead when Shea Theodore snuck in to receive a weak-side pass alone in front, but Lotz made another big save on his blocker side to deflect the shot away.  Seattle did go on top 1-0 later in the period after Lotz had stopped a shot and saved the rebound only to see Scott Eansor lift a third chance into the top half of the net on his backhand to put the Thunderbirds on top.

The Silvertips then found themselves down by two only 1:15 into the third when Branden Troock slid a cross-ice pass under Lotz for a pivotal early goal.  Alexander Delnov put a low shot inside the far post from the top of the circle at 4:51 and then Troock netted his second of the period two minutes later to make it 4-0 in Seattle’s favor.  Mitch Elliot tacked on a late goal in the final minutes as the Thunderbirds advanced with the 5-0 win and five-game series victory.

Goaltender Taran Kozun (4-1) stopped all 24 shots he faced in net for Seattle.  For the only time in the series, special teams were a non-factor as Everett went 0 for 1 on the powerplay and the Thunderbirds were 0 for 2.

Silvertips Blow Out T-Birds in Everett Force Game 5 in Playoffs Tonight

March 29, 2014


Lincoln with Sledgehammer

Everett hammered the Seattle Thunderbirds Friday night.

In front of nearly 5000 fans Friday night the Everett Silvertips dominated the Seattle Thunderbirds and forced a game five in their best of seven playoff series against the Seattle Thunderbirds. That game is tonight in Kent. Here’s the wrap up from the Tips…

The Everett Silvertips exploded for three goals in the first eight minutes and got a hat trick from Jujhar Khaira in a decisive 6-1 victory over the Seattle Thunderbirds in Game 4 of their first-round playoff series Friday night at Comcast Arena.  After earning their first win of the best-of-seven series, the Silvertips have pulled to within a 3-1 series deficit and successfully forced a Game 5 Saturday night at the ShoWare Center in Kent.

Khaira totaled four points on the night, including just the second playoff hat trick in Silvertips history to lead Everett offensively.  Brayden Low and Josh Winquist each tallied a goal and an assist, while Dawson Leedahl and Ivan Nikolishin each picked up a pair of assists.  Carson Stadnyk also scored for the ‘Tips and goaltender Austin Lotz (1-3) stopped 17 shot in net as Everett outshot Seattle 34-18.

Jujhar Khaira got Everett off to a great start in the game after Brayden Low won a puck along the boards, backhanding a shot into the top corner at the 1:27 mark to open the scoring.  The ‘Tips went on the penalty kill soon after, but doubled their lead just 1:05 later when Manraj Hayer started the rush before feeding a breaking Josh Winquist for a shot over Taran Kozun’s glove resulting in a shorthanded goal.  Low then made it 3-0 midway through the period when Brayden Low surprised Kozun from a sharp angle with a quick scoop shot off a feed from Khaira.  Shots were 11-4 in favor of the ‘Tips after 20 minutes of play.

The play evened out in the second period, while Everett killing off two early penalties and Seattle killing off one.  It looked as though the ‘Tips would take a 3-0 lead into the third before Jared Hauf released a wrist shot from the blue line that bounced just inside the post and past a screened Austin Lotz to get Seattle on the board at 18:22.  The Silvertips headed to the dressing room with a 3-1 lead and a 22-14 advantage on the shot clock.

Jujhar Khaira restored the three-goal lead with a powerplay goal early in the third period, picking up a rebound in front and depositing it to the back of the net at 3:30.  Khaira completed his hat trick less than two minutes with later with another powerplay goal when he received a pass from Dawson Leedahl off the rush and scored to make it 5-1 Everett.  The onslaught continued at 6:48 as Carson Stadnyk put the puck between Kozun’s legs to join in the scoring and give the Silvertips a 6-1 lead while chasing Kozun from the game.  Tempers flared at times throughout the remainder of the third, but the score was unchanged in the Everett win.

Taran Kozun (3-1) turned away 23 of 29 shots in 47 minutes in net, while Danny Mumaugh stopped all five shots he faced in the last 13 minutes of the third.  The Silvertips went 2 for 6 on the powerplay and stopped Seattle on all four of their opportunities.

Silvertips on Brink of Elimination, Must Beat Seattle Friday Night in Downtown Everett

March 26, 2014


Everett Silvertips

The Everett Silvertips have to win or go home this Friday night in downtown Everett.

It’s going to take more than a sea of green to keep the ‘Tips in the WHL playoffs. Everett is now down 0-3 against the Seattle Thunderbirds in the 1st round of playoff action after last night’s overtime loss in Kent. Here’s the re-cap…

The Everett Silvertips held three separate one-goal leads Tuesday night, but were unable to hold off the Seattle Thunderbirds in a dramatic 4-3 overtime loss in Game 3 of their first-round playoff series at the ShoWare Center.  Their series deficit now at 3-0, the Silvertips return to their home ice looking for a change of fortune to prolong the series with a do-or-die Game 4 coming up Friday night at 7:35 pm at Comcast Arena.

Rookie forward Patrick Bajkov scored twice on the powerplay in the game, giving him three of Everett’s five goals in the series.  Manraj Hayer was responsible for the primary assist on all three Silvertip goals, the other of which was scored by Mirco Mueller – who also had an assist.  Austin Lotz (0-3) turned away 25 shots in goal before Mathew Barzal’s turnaround shot off a carom in front slipped over the goal line in overtime to give Seattle the victory.

Despite getting off to a slow start, the Silvertips scored a powerplay goal on their first shot as Manraj Hayer picked up a deflected shot and made a quick pass to Patrick Bajkov for a one-timer over the shoulder of Taran Kozun.  The Thunderbirds tied the game during a delayed penalty when Russell Maxwell’s blind backhand pass from the corner crossed to Branden Troock, who slammed it in at the far post.  With one minute left in the period and Everett back on the powerplay, Zane Jones helped win the puck off the wall to Hayer, who again set up Bajkov for a one-timer into the open net to give the ‘Tips a 2-1 lead after one.

Early in the second period off a draw win in the Everett zone, Seattle’s Jerret Smith fired a shot that was tipped by Scott Eansor and floated over the shoulder of Austin Lotz to tie the game at two.  Shortly after the goal Lotz stoned Branden Troock on a scoring chance to prevent the T-Birds from going ahead.  The ‘Tips regained the lead for a third time late in the period off a nice rush in transition.  Mirco Mueller broke up a Seattle rush and went the other way with Hayer and Josh Winquist, who combined to feed him at the goal mouth for a shot that rolled off Kozun and into the net.  Shots were 22-21 for the Thunderbirds after two periods of play, but Everett held a 3-2 advantage.

Scott Eansor tied the game for Seattle early in the third off a pass from Jaimen Yakubowski, who held the puck inside the Everett blueline on a clearing attempt to set up Eansor’s chance.  The ‘Tips had two more powerplays in the third and the T-Birds had one late as the teams traded a few chances the rest of the way – none better than Ivan Nikolishin’s wrap-around attempt that clanged off the near post of an open net with 3:19 left in regulation.

Zane Jones had the first good luck in early overtime after Jujhar Khaira carried the puck into the Seattle zone, but Kozun turned the shot away.  Less than a minute later, Mathew Barzal cut around the Everett net and into the shot under pressure before releasing an innocent-looking shot that deflected off traffic in front and trickled in along the post to give Seattle the victory and a 3-0 series lead.

Final shots were 31-29 in favor of the Silvertips.  Goaltender Taran Kozun (3-0) turned away 28 shots in 64 minutes for the Thunderbirds.  Everett finished 2 for 7 on the powerplay, while the penalty killing unit was a perfect 3 for 3 against Seattle’s man-advantage.
