Brenden Kichton scores two goals to lead Chiefs over Silvertips 4-1

EVERETT, Wash. - Brenden Kichton scored two goals to lead the Spokane Chiefs over the Everett Silvertips 4-1 on Wednesday night in WHL action.

Carter Proft and Todd Fiddler also scored for Spokane (37-24-2), which won its third straight. Garret Hughson played a strong game in goal for the Chiefs, making 25 saves.

Ryan Harrison scored the lone goal for Everett (22-36-5). Austin Lotz made 25 saves in net for the Silvertips.

Kichton's first goal broke a 1-1 tie with Spokane on the power play late in the first period. Everett appeared to get a period-ending clear, however, Blake Gal corralled a rebound and fed Kichton with 0.5 second remaining in the period, giving Spokane the lead for good.

Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
