Spokane Chiefs’ 6-5 overtime loss to Everett Silvertips eerily familiar

UPDATED: Sun., Jan. 28, 2018

For the second straight night, the Spokane Chiefs gave up the tying goal in the final minute of regulation then the winner early in the second minute of overtime, losing 6-5 to the Everett Silvertips on Sunday.

Connor Dewar tied the game at 19:36 of the third period and scored the game-winner at 1:10 of overtime on a 2-on-1 rush.

Saturday night against Tri-City, the Americans scored with a minute left in regulation then got the winning goal 1:14 into overtime.

As in the loss to Tri-City, the tying goal came with an extra skater on the ice after Everett pulled its goalie.

The Chiefs never trailed against Everett until the game-winner, alternating goals with the Silvertips until the third period when Kailer Yamamoto and Jaret Anderson-Dolan scored in the first 4:38 for a 5-3 Chiefs lead.

Everett’s Wyatte Wylie scored his second goal of the game less than a minute later before Dewar tied it.

Anderson-Dolan, who leads the club with 27 goals, scored twice and had an assist. Yamamoto had a goal and three assists to run his points streak to 10 games.

Jake McGrew and Luke Toporowski each had a goal while Ty Smith had two assists and Riley McKay one for Spokane. For Toporowski, it was his third goal in five games.

Dawson Weatherill made 42 saves on 48 shots on goal for Spokane while the Chiefs put 41 shots on goal. Spokane’s five goals were two more than Everett goalie Carter Hart had given up in a game this season.

Spokane scored on two of three power plays against the league’s top penalty-kill unit. Everett scored on one of three power plays.

The OT loss gave the Chiefs (26-19-3-2) 57 points, and they were joined in fourth place in the Western Hockey League’s U.S. Division by Tri-City, which defeated Seattle on Sunday night.
