Bertaggia scores twice in return as the Chiefs down the Silvertips

EVERETT, Wash. - Alessio Bertaggia scored twice in his first game back from injury as the Spokane Chiefs doubled up the host Everett Silvertips 6-3 on Friday in Western Hockey League play.

Bertaggia, who had played just two games for Spokane since arriving at the trade deadline because of an upper-body injury, scored a first-period goal and added an empty-net goal.

Cole Wedman, Mitch Holmberg, Dylan Walchuk and Mikulas Rimmel also scored for the Chiefs (34-22-2) and Eric Williams made 24 saves to earn the win.

Kohl Bauml scored twice for the Silvertips (21-33-5), who lost their ninth game in a row, and Manraj Hayer scored the other.

Daniel Cotton finished with 33 saves in a losing cause.

Both clubs went 1 for 3 on the power play.

Quote of the Day

The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
