Everett bows out of playoffs


There are no more U.S. Division teams alive in the WHL playoffs.

Division champion, and WHL regular-season points leader, Everett made an ignominious exit from the postseason Monday night, losing 8-2 at Prince George, dropping the series in six games.

The Tips led game five at home 3-0 in the third period and lost. That reverse momentum carried over into game six and now the U.S. Division will not be represented in the chase for the Memorial Cup.
