Petryk scores twice, including winner, as the Silvertips down the Chiefs

EVERETT, Wash. - Reid Petryk scored twice, including the winner on a penalty shot at 17:16 of the third period, as the Everett Silvertips edged the visiting Spokane Chiefs 3-2 on Friday in Western Hockey League action.

Petryk earned the penalty shot after being tripped up from behind by Spokane defenseman Reid Gow while on a breakaway.

Joshua Winquist also scored for the Silvertips (16-23-2) while Austin Lotz made 33 saves for the victory.

Blake Gal and Mike Aviani scored for the Chiefs (24-13-1), who are winless in three games, and Garret Hughson turned aside 23 shots in defeat.

Everett failed to score on two chances with the man advantage while Spokane went 1 for 4 on the power play.

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
