Cole MacDonald scored the lone goal for the Silvertips (11-18-2), who trailed 4-0 after 40 minutes of play.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
