Looking to continue their win streak after back-to-back victories last weekend, the Americans headed to Everett today to take on the Silvertips. The Americans fell behind early and couldn’t find the momentum to rebound, ultimately falling 5-1.
The Silvertips put themselves up by two in the first period with goals from Bryce Kindopp and Michal Gut. Dawson Butt added a third mid-second period extending the lead to three.
Colorado Avalanche prospect Sasha Mutala scored the Americans’ only goal tonight at 14:12 second period. The 18-year-old forward was able to make room in the high slot and score his fifth of the season with a hard wrist shot through traffic. The goal was assisted by Sam Huo.
Everett found the back of the net twice more in the final period cementing their victory.
Americans netminder Beck Warm stopped 28 of 32 shots faced. Everett out shot Tri-City 33-24.
