Mueller scores winner as the Silvertips end 11-game winless streak

KENT, Wash. - Mirco Mueller scored 2:07 into overtime as the Everett Silvertips edged the host Seattle Thunderbirds 3-2 on Saturday in Western Hockey League action.

Mueller's goal snapped an 11-game winless streak for Everett, who last recorded a victory on Jan. 25th against the Prince George Cougars.

Tyler Sandhu scored twice for the Silvertips (22-35-5), who despite the winless streak still hold the final playoff position in the Western Conference, and Landon Oslanski assisted on all three of his club's goals.

Griffin Foulk and Shea Theodore scored for the Thunderbirds (21-32-8), who with the overtime loss have earned at least one point in five straight contests.

Austin Lotz stopped 36-of-38 shots for the win as Brandon Glover made 23 saves in defeat.

Everett went 2 for 7 on the power play while Seattle scored once on four chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
