Stadnyk scores twice, Cotton makes 40 saves as Silvertips edge Tigers 2-1

EVERETT, Wash. - Carson Stadnyk scored both Everett goals and Daniel Cotton made 40 saves as the Everett Silvertips edged the Medicine Hat Tigers 2-1 in WHL action Sunday.

Everett was outshot 41-18, with Cotton allowing only a power play goal by Curtis Valk in the third period, before Stadnyk put the Silvertips in front with his second goal of the game at 12:43.

Stadnyk opened the scoring in the second period with his second goal of the season at 13:17.

The Silvertips killed off 6 of 7 Medicine Hat power plays, while the Tigers denied the ‘Tips on all three of their opportunities.

Medicine Hat outshot Everett 14-3 in the first period, 14-8 in the second, and 13-7 in the third.

Everett was first to crack the scoreboard when Austin Adam released a shot from the blue-line that was deflected in off Stadnyk’s stick in front.

Medicine Hat tied the game on the power play at 7:34 of the third period when Valk scored on a one-timer from the top of the left circle.

The Silvertips re-took took the lead five minutes later as Landon Oslanski slipped a nice centring pass to Stadnyk, who tucked the puck past Cam Lanigan from just outside the crease.

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.
