KENT, Wash. - Tyler Sandhu scored twice as the Everett Silvertips edged the host Seattle Thunderbirds 4-3 on Saturday in Western Hockey League action.

Dawson Leedahl broke a 3-3 tie at 17:03 of the third period for the Silvertips (23-39-6), who halted a three-game winless streak, and Reid Petryk had the other.

Connor Honey, Shea Theodore and Luke Lockhart scored for the Thunderbirds (23-36-9).

Austin Lotz made 28 saves for the win as Brandon Glover stopped 27 shots in defeat.

Everett went 1 for 3 on the power play while Seattle failed to score on its only chance with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
