Everett, Wash. — The Spokane Chiefs lost their third straight contest as the Everett Silvertips jumped out to a 3-0 lead and held off Spokane for a 4-2 victory on Wednesday night in Everett. The Chiefs are now 15 points back of the first-place Silvertips in the U.S. Division as Spokane fell for the second game at Everett in the last six days.
Everett scored a power play goal late in the first period to take a 1-0 lead after one. The Silvertips added a break away goal early in the second to go up 2-0 and then scored their second power play tally of the night midway through the second to go up three after two. Spokane killed off two Everett power plays late in the second to keep it a three goal margin.
In the third, Ethan McIndoe scored his eighth of the year from Luc Smith and Riley Woods on the power play 48 seconds into the period to cut the margin to 3-1.
Woods then notched his team-leading 21st goal of the year with a power play marker at 9:26 from McIndoe and Ty Smith to bring the Chiefs within a goal at 3-2.
Spokane could not get the equalizer, however, as an empty net goal from Sean Richards at 18:25 sealed the 4-2 win for the Silvertips. Everett is now 3-0-1 vs. the Chiefs this season.
Spokane returns home for back-to-back games on December 7 and 8, including the annual Teddy Bear Toss presented by the Spokesman-Review Christmas Fund on the 8th. Fans are encouraged to bring a new or gently used stuffed animal to the game to throw on the ice after the Chiefs’ first goal. Toys will be gathered and donated to local families in need.
