The Victoria Royals knew the challenge ahead of them last night as they entered Everett taking on the top seeded Silvertips in game one of their best of seven playoff series.
And the Royals couldn’t handle the ‘Tips explosive offence as Everett powered past Victoria 4-2 in Game 1 to draw first blood in the series. The Silvertips scored three goals in six minutes near the end of the second period, and the Royals simply could not recover. Jack Walker scored a goal late in the second and added another midway through the third, but the damage had already been done.
The two teams lock up again tonight in Everett for Game 2. Puck drop is set for 7:00pm.
