Seattle Looks Listless In 7-1 Loss To Kamloops

Seattle was hoping to close off a great month of December the right way, but got off to a disappointing start against the Blazers, a team that came in dead last in the B.C. division. Prior to Tuesday’s game, the T-Birds were 7-1-1-0 for the month.

T-Birds Fly Out Of Everett With 3-2 Victory

Seattle (22-10-1-3) goaltender Justin Myles provided 36 saves including some critical ones late as Everett attempted a furious late rally with a 2-man empty-net power play with 45 seconds left. The win was Seattle’s 10th in its last 11 contests, and evened the season series with Everett (22-11-4-0) at one win apiece even as the team was outshot 38 to 21.

Break Comes At A Good Time For T-Birds

While the 10-day hiatus comes at a time the T-Birds are rolling, having won 9 of their last 10 games, it also comes at a time when the team is ailing.

Seattle (21-10-1-3) got off to a fast start thanks to Delnov. The 19-year-old Russian scored after he corralled a loose puck in the slot at 5:06 in the first period. He then assisted on Ryan Gropp’s goal which gave the T-Birds a 2-0 lead with just over seven minutes to play in the period.
