Cougars rally from 3-goal deficit to beat Silvertips 7-6 in shootout

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.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
