PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. - Mac Engel made 21 saves as the Prince George Cougars blanked the visiting Everett Silvertips 4-0 on Saturday in Western Hockey League play.

Colin Jacobs scored twice for the Cougars (15-28-6), who halted a three-game winless streak, while Rinalds Rosinskis chipped in with three assists.

Jake Mykitiuk and Zach Pochiro had a goal apiece to round out Prince George's offence.

Austin Lotz made 35 saves in a losing cause for the Silvertips (21-26-3), who lost in regulation for the first time in six outings.

Prince George went 2 for 5 on the power play while Everett failed to score on five chances with the man advantage.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
