EVERETT – The Spokane Chiefs’ winning streak reached a season-high six Wednesday as the usual suspects picked apart the Everett Silvertips in the final two periods.
Season points leaders Drayson Bowman, Mitch Wahl, Levko Koper, Tyler Johnson and Stefan Ulmer played a major part in Spokane’s 5-1 Western Hockey League win at Comcast Arena.
Bowman and Wahl scored during the second period after the teams ended the first period tied at 1. Wahl has a team-high 19 goals, one more than Bowman.
Koper had two assists to take over the team lead with 21, one more than Bowman, Johnson and Ulmer. Johnson, Ulmer and Brady Calla had one goal and one assist apiece.
Ondrej Roman had two assists to give him six in five games since rejoining the team. The Chiefs haven’t lost since Roman returned from the Czech Republic.
The teams traded power-play goals in the first period, with Calla scoring at 4 minutes, 43 seconds and Everett’s Dale Hunt tying the game at 15:55.
James Reid made 27 saves for Spokane, which is 4-1 against Everett this season.
Spokane improved to 28-14-0-3 (59 points) and closed within six points of Tri-City in the Western Conference’s U.S. Division.
