KENT, Wash. - Josh Winquist scored the only goal in the shootout and Austin Lotz finished with 45 saves and stopped all three Tri-City players in the shootout Tuesday as the Everett Silvertips rallied to beat the Americans 2-1 in the Western Hockey League.
Justin Feser ended an eight-game goal drought at 17:28 of the first period to give the Americans (18-12-3) a 1-0 lead they would hold until Everett's Carson Stadnyk tied the score at 10:46 of the third.
The Silvertips (13-20-2) had four power plays in the second period, including a 5-on-3 for 1:20, but had no luck against Eric Comrie and the Americans' defence.
Comrie, who has lost his last six starts, finished with 29 saves.
"Eric played terrific," Tri-City coach Jim Hiller said. "You give up one goal, you expect to win. We have to score more goals for him."
