Spokane Chiefs blanked by Evertt Silvertips to start 4-game roadtrip

EVERETT – Brandson Hein scored his first goal of the season 2 minutes, 40 seconds into the second period to start a string of five straight and the Everett Silvertips handed the Spokane Chiefs a 5-0 loss at the XFINITY Arena on Wednesday.

The Chiefs (17-18-5-2, 41 points, fifth in U.S. Division) have lost three in a row and face three more games on the road in the next four days. Spokane is two points behind Portland for the final playoff spot with back-to-back games in Portland on Friday and Saturday.

Spokane was outplayed from the opening faceoff. The Chiefs were outshot 9-4 in the first frame and 34-23 overall.

Mario Petit made 18 saves in nearly 53 minutes of work for Everett (26-5-6-1, 59 points, first in division), while Dorrin Luding saved five in 7 1/2 minutes of relief. Dawson Weatherill went the distance for Spokane and made 29 saves.

Everett tallied twice in the second. Connor Dewar’s sixth of the season made it 2-0 midway through the period.

The Silvertips then scored three times in the third. Devon Skoleski notched his sixth on an short-handed marker a little over five minute into the period, and Jake Cristensen added his third just over three mintues later.

Riley Sutter capped the scoring with 7 1/2 minutes left, his 13th of the year.
