Where Did Wednesday Rank?

Remi Laurencelle did more than just “show up,” his five point*** six point night is among the greatest offensive feats in Silvertips history.

He’s the first to eclipse five in a game since Tyler Maxwell did it in 2010-11 against the Seattle Thunderbirds, the first to hit six points since Dan Gendur did it in 2007-08, and the third player in Silvertips history to score four goals in a game.

The last guy in regular season hat trick mode: Kohl Bauml, who did it 366 days earlier against Victoria.

Even more impressive: his line combined for 12 points (Carson Stadnyk and Dawson Leedahl each had 3 points). Their line was a combined +8.

Leed(ahl) On

As Dawson Leedahl prepares for his 200th career WHL game, the Silvertips can snap a couple of pesky slumps by turning things around offensively tonight vs. the Vancouver Giants.

The Silvertips have owned a 4-0 record in the last 4 games (outscoring the Giants 17-3), but you’ll hear a lot tonight about getting past the offensive and special teams speed bumps that have populated the last couple of games.

Outscored 7-1 over the last two contests, the Silvertips let two separate five-on-three man advantages get by last night without scoring. It didn’t help they missed 2/3 of their top line as well in the process. But potentially getting them back, plus shifting the focus onto the second game in 24 hours, provides a big chance at opportunity.

It’s 80’s Night in the house (special Kingdome era apparel tribute you’ll see if coming to the game, from our pregame show), and Al Kinisky and I have the call at 6:30pm on Fox Sports 1380.

  • 1ST INTERMISSION: Carter Hart


TONIGHT’S MATCHUP
Tonight brings the second meeting of the season between the Silvertips and Vancouver Giants at XFINITY Arena, with the Silvertips playing in their fifth home game in a seven-game stretch. The Silvertips are 37-31-3-1 overall against the Giants and are 22-12-1-1 at XFINITY Arena. Everett defeated Vancouver in the first meeting, 3-2 at XFINITY Arena on Nov. 7 behind Patrick Bajkov’s game winning goal. The Silvertips are 9-4-0-1 at home this season. Both teams are playing in their second game in as many days.

HEAD-TO-HEAD: ON THE SHOULDERS OF GIANTS
The Silvertips host the Vancouver Giants for the second time this season, continuing a tight rivalry at a Silvertips 37-31-3-1 record. Last season, the Tips won all three games in Everett by a combined score of 14-1. The Giants are headlined by blue chip prospect Tyler Benson (one of four WHL players listed with an “A” rating in the CSS “Ones to Watch List”, a possible early selection in the first round of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. RW Ty Ronning, draft eligible in 2016, is the son of former Vancouver Canucks forward Cliff Ronning. Vancouver is led by head coach Lorne Molleken, who is just one of four coaches in WHL history to surpass 600 wins. The Giants have won three games in a row and defeated Kootenay, 4-0 last night at the Pacific Coliseum.

PG 3 – EVT 0 (12-5-15): Ty Edmonds turned in a 27-save shutout and Colby McAuley galvanized the Prince George Cougars with a pair of goals to hold off the Everett Silvertips, 3-0 at XFINITY Arena on Friday. The Silvertips suffered back-to-back losses at home for the first time this season and Carter Hart turned in 27 saves, decorating a game that took a bruising and physical approach. Both teams combined for 77 penalty minutes and nine major or misconduct infractions, involved in three fights in the first 15 minutes of the game.

STUCKY CELEBRATES A MILESTONE:
Silvertips equipment manager James Stucky worked the 1,500th game in his career on Oct. 28 vs. Brandon. The native of Burien, Wash. has served the Silvertips in his capacity since the inception of the franchise in 2003, having previously worked in the American Hockey League with Cincinnati, in the IHL with Indianapolis and in the CHL with Memphis from 1995-2003. He was honored last Friday night with a pre-game ceremonial puck drop.

THE KEVIN CONSTANTINE FILE
Kevin Constantine returns for his seventh season overall as head coach of the Silvertips, ranking as the club’s all-time leader in wins (259) and posting a record of 259-148-50 in his Everett career. All four of the Silvertips’ division titles have been achieved with Constantine as head coach, most recently last season which was Everett’s first since 2006-07. He was the recipient of the Dunc McCallum Trophy (WHL Coach of the Year) in 2003-04, when the Silvertips broke nearly every WHL expansion record and became the first expansion team in WHL history to win a division title. Constantine has coached in the NHL over the course of seven seasons with San Jose, Pittsburgh and New Jersey, helping guide all three clubs to an appearance in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

 

A Winning Attitude.

Wednesday, a 4-1 loss wasn’t what the Everett Silvertips had in mind.

And tonight, the Silvertips sit at the table of a card game, fresh off the losing hand, asking for “next hand.” Sitting at the table nearby are the Prince George Cougars, who amplified their season with five wins in six games.
