Silvertips Blank Americans 2-0 in Everett

John Allen

Everett, WA- Despite outshooting the Everett Silvertips (3-1-0-0 6 pts.) 29-26 in the game, the Tri-City Americans (2-4-0-1 5pts.) were unable to solve Austin Lotz who recorded a 29 save shutout, leading Everett to a 2-0 victory over the Americans Friday night at Comcast Arena.

After getting its first power play opportunity at 3:47 of the first period, the Americans took early momentum. Brian Williams got the best chance of the power play narrowly missing a one timer to the right of Lotz, but his shot rang off the goal post.

Tri-City outshot Everett eight to five in the opening frame, but it was the Silvertips who found the net, breaking a scoreless tie at 12:30 of the first period. After going hard to the net, Josh Winquist found an open Jujhar Khaira who scored to give Everett the first period lead.  

In the second, it was the Silvertips who carried the momentum through most of the period, outshooting the Americans 12 to 6 in the middle frame. But Eric Comrie stood tall for Tri-City, keeping his team within one goal.

The best scoring opportunity of the period came once again from Williams who was sent alone on Lotz but was unable to lift the back handed shot over the Silvertip net minder.

In the third period, the Silvertips scored an insurance marker, taking advantage of a Matthew Gelinas Penalty at 5:30. Carson Stadnyk  scored off of a Winquist slap shot that ricochet off of the end board onto his stick.

Trailing 2-0 late, Williams drew a power play for the Americans with 6:25 remaining in the period, but Tri-City was unable to generate any scoring chances.  It was the first time in five games that the Americans went scoreless on the power play, going 0-2 on the night.

The Americans outshot the Silvertips 15 to 9 in the final period but never managed to solve Lotz.

Comrie had another strong outing in goal for the Americans, stopping 24 of the Silvertips 26 shots to keep his team in it the entire game. The Tri-City netminder continues to be one of the teams most consistent performers, dropping his goals against average to 2.60 for the year.

The Americans will head north of the border for its next two games, starting this Sunday for a 1:05 p.m. matinee against the Victoria Royals at the Save on Foods Memorial Arena. After completing its road trip in Kamloops on Tuesday, the Americans return home Friday October 11 to take on the Blazers again for a 7:05 p.m. faceoff at the Toyota Center.
