The first period was dominated by the Americans early as Tri-City outshot Everett in the first half of the period. Tri-City would get on the board first as Brian Williams would deke out Everett goalie Austin Lotz and slip a backhand into the net for a 1-0 lead. The Silvertips outshot Tri-City 12-11 in the period, but Luke Lee-Knight made some great saves to allow the Americans to lead after one.

Tri-City dominated the second period, increasing the lead to two early in the second period on the power play as Michal Plutnar would fire a slap shot from the point through traffic into the goal. Just over a minute later, the Americans would add another goal as Parker Bowles would fire a wrist shot from the point that would find the back of the net for a 3-0 lead. Justin Gutierrez scored his second goal of the season midway through the period to make it 4-0 after two periods.

Everett finally broke through Lee-Knight early in the third period as Manraj Hayer fired a wrist shot from the top of the left faceoff circle into the goal. Tri-City would dash the dreams of an Everett comeback midway through the period as Mitch Topping would fire a slap shot into the goal on a 5-on-3 power play. Jesse Mychan would score on the ensuing power play to make it 6-1 to cap the scoring. Lee-Knight would guide the Americans the rest of the way to the win.

Topping’s goal and assist brings his point streak to five games. Feser had an assist tonight which brings him within two assists of tying Dylan Stanley for 9th on the Americans all-time assists list.

Lee-Knight made 32 saves in the win while Lotz made 38 saves in the loss.
