SilvertipsIt’s an enviable streak as the Everett Silvertips made the WHL Playoffs for the 18th time with a win in Vancouver Saturday night. Here’s the game recap from the Silvertips.

The Everett Silvertips clinched their 18th playoff berth in franchise history, continuing their streak of never missing the Western Hockey League’s postseason with a 3-1 victory at the Langley Events Centre Saturday night.

Caden Zaplitny opened the scoring for the Silvertips 6:38 into the second period, redirecting a Jesse Heslop shot for his 10th goal of the season. Ty Thorpe would answer for the Giants at 11:38 in the frame, slipping a low shot through Tyler Palmer for his 30th of the year.

Heslop gave the Silvertips the lead at 17:53, tapping in a backdoor pass from Beau Courtney for his ninth tally of the season. Aidan Sutter tacked on an empty netter with less than one second left to seal the 3-1 victory.

Tyler Palmer turned aside 22 of 23 for the win, his 11th as a Silvertip.
