Seattle Drops Third Straight In Shootout Loss To Kamloops

Kamloops (13-44-2-3) continued its dominance over Seattle thanks to a Matt Bellerive game-winning shootout goal on a shot that just inched past the goal line. The Blazers forced extra time despite being out shot 16-2 in a third period the teams entered tied 2-2.

Everett Stifles Seattle, Handing T-Birds Second Straight Loss

Mueller scored at the 10:45 mark of the final period on a drive from the left wing to give the Silvertips a 2-0 lead which felt more like 4-0 considering the lack of shots Seattle was able to generate on Tips goalie Austin Lotz. The win was just the first for Everett in the last four tries at home versus Seattle (37-19-2-3).
