The Tips are in first place in the U.S. Division

Coming into a crucial match with the Portland Winterhawks, the Everett Silvertips very well knew what was a stake. A win over Portland would put Everett’s winning streak at ten and propel the Silvertips into first place in the US Division.

With 6,633 loud fans in downtown Everett roaring on the Silvertips and a big night from Dustin Wolf, who made 38 saves, Everett took down Portland 4-1 for a pivotal win over their US Division rivals.

Cole Fonstad, Dawson Butt, Kasper Puutio and Ty Kolle (multi point game) notched the goal scoring for the Silvertips, who won their fourth in a row over Portland and tied Edmonton for the top record in points, in the WHL with eight games remaining.

The Tips reduced their magic number to four points to clinch home ice advantage in the opening round of the WHL Playoffs, going 2-of-2 on the power play for the day.
