Chiefs rebound from a pair of home losses with 3-2 overtime win over Silvertips @NHL

SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane Chiefs took a step in the right direction after a pair of bad home losses.

Steven Kuhn scored 46 seconds into overtime as the Chiefs pulled out a 3-2 win over the lowly Everett Silvertips in Western Hockey League action Wednesday.

Everett (5-21-6), which was outshot 45-15 in regulation, forced the overtime when Kohl Bauml deflected a shot from the point past Mac Engel for his fifth goal with 7:35 to play.

Kuhn's seventh goal came after he weaved through the Everett defence and then fired a quick wrist shot past Kent Simpson from directly in front of the goal.

Spokane (15-9-5) took the lead in the second period with a pair of import goals from the Czech Republic.

A giveaway deep in the Silvertips end allowed Dominik Uher to snap a high wrist shot from low in the right circle past Simpson at 7:11 for his 11th goal. Marek Kalus got his seventh from the opposite circle, waiting patiently while a defenceman slid out of the way then firing a shot that got between Simpson's pads.

The Silvertips only managed on shot in the period.

Everett came out of the first period despite being outshot 16-4. The Silvertips' first shot was an unassisted goal by Josh Birkholz at 13:37.

The Silvertips were without standout defenceman Ryan Murray, who made Canada's team for the world junior championship.
