T-Birds doubled up by Cougars

Prince George, BC, September 23, 2006 - Four different Seattle Thunderbirds scored a goal Saturday night at the CN Centre to help the T-Birds to a 4-2 victory over the Prince George Cougars.

This was the second game of a back-to-back series between the two teams. Seattle split the season opening series after the Cougars won the first game, 4-2, on Friday night.

Seattle's record is now 1-1-0-0 as they return home for the home opener on Saturday, September 30, against the Vancouver Giants. Game time is 7:05 p.m. at KeyArena. Greg Scott put the T-Birds up 1-0 at 16:24 the first period with an unassisted goal. He picked up a loose puck in the neutral zone, brought the puck in the Cougars zone, split two defenders and beat Prince George goalie Real Cyr glove side.

Seattle outshot Prince George 13-8 in the first period.

Prince George tied the game 1-1 with a power-play goal at 1:30 of the second period by Jared Walker. Brett Robertson and Ty Wishart had the assists.

The T-Birds outshot the Cougars 9-8 in the second period and led 22-16 in total shots after two periods.

Bretton Stamler beat Cyr five-hole with a slap shot 45 seconds into the third period on a five-on-three power play to give the T-Birds a 2-1 lead. Thomas Hickey had the assist when he took the puck off the right boards and passed to Stamler just inside the left circle. Hickey has an assist in the first two game of the season.

Seattle struck on the power-play again at 5:39 of the third. Lindsay Nielsen put back a rebound from a Stamler slap shot to give the T-Birds a 3-1 lead. Scott had the second assist on Seattle's third goal.

Robertson scored a power-play goal at 18:12 of the third period to cut the T-Birds lead to one goal. Dan Gendur and Dana Tyrell had the assists.

Jan Eberle gave the T-Birds their two-goal lead back when he scored a shorthanded empty-net goal at 19:01 of the third. Eberle shot the puck from along the left boards in the T-Birds zone.

The T-Birds finished with a 31-25 advantage in shots.

Seattle goalie Derek Yeomans stopped 23 of 25 shots and his record is now 1-1-0.

Cyr stopped 27 of 31 shots and his record is now 1-1- 0.

Silvertips Win 2-1 over Bruins

The Everett Silvertips ended their first game of the regular season with a notch in the win column. With a late goal from rookie Brandon Campos, the Silvertips defeated the new expansion team, the Chilliwack Bruins, by a score of 2-1. Everett starts off on the right foot with a 1-0 record while Chilliwack evens out at 1-1.

Zach Hamill opened up the scoring for Everett midway through the first period after he one-timed it into the back of the net on a Silvertips power play. Jason Fransoo and Eric Doyle earned the assists. Then late in the third period, on another Everett power play, newcomer Brandon Campos tipped the puck behind Alex Archibald and earned his first career Western Hockey League goal. Hamill and Doyle tallied the helpers on Everett's second goal.

Scoring in the second period for the Bruins was Nick Holden. Holden sent the puck high and beat veteran goaltender Leland Irving on the glove side. This was Holden's first goal in the WHL as well.

Leland Irving was solid and made a few key saves to keep his opponents at bay. He now sits at 1-0. Alex Archibald, also standing strong for the Bruins, evens out at 1-1. On the power play Everett converted on only two of eleven while Chilliwack scored on one of ten. The Silvertips out shot their foes 27-23.

Tomorrow night, Sunday September 24th, the Everett Silvertips will drop the puck against the Kamloops Blazers. The action begins at the Interior Savings Centre at 7pm.
