Petryk scores twice, including winner, as the Silvertips edge the Giants 6-5

EVERETT, Wash. - Reid Petryk scored twice, including the game-winning goal with less than five minutes remaining, as the Everett Silvertips beat the Vancouver Giants 6-5 on Saturday night in Western Hockey League action.

Petryk took a pass off the board to get past the defense, then made a move to his backhand to score his second goal of the game.

Nick Walters, Landon Oslanski, Tyler Sandhu and Ty Mappin also scored for Everett (8-14-2), which was playing without its captain and defensive star Ryan Murray. Murray suffered a dislocated shoulder Friday night against the Victoria Royals and is out indefinitely.

Brett Kulak, Anthony Ast, Kale Kessy, Trevor Cheek and Taylor Vickerman scored for the Giants (7-14-0).

Austin Lotz earned the win in goal, making 21 saves, as Payton Lee stopped 21 shots in a losing cause.

Everett went 2-for-6 on the power play while Vancouver went 1-for-2.

Quote of the Day

I don’t know if it was more relief for me that [Stamkos] scored or the power play scored. It was a whole compilation of Alka Seltzer.
