EVERETT, Wash. - The Prince George Cougars rallied from a three-goal, third-period deficit and went on to defeat the Everett Silvertips 7-6 in a shootout on Sunday night in Western Hockey League action.

Everett led 6-3 with 12 minutes remaining in regulation, thanks in large part to two goals and two assists from Landon Oslanski.

But Prince George got one back when Alex Forsberg scored on a three-on-one then Marc McNulty and Caleb Belter scored 25 seconds apart late in the third to tie it.

The Cougars won a seven-round shootout 4-3.

Daulton Siwak added two goals and Daniel Gibb also scored for Prince George (2-0-0), which swept a weekend doubleheader against the Silvertips.

Brett Zarowny earned the win in goal with 33 saves.

Josh Winquist also scored twice for Everett (0-1-1), while Kohl Bauml and Ryan Murray added goals for a Silvertips team that was shut out 6-0 the previous night. Cole Holowenko stopped 32 shots in net for Everett.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
