Gage Goncalves scored at 2:21 of overtime to lift the Everett Silvertips past the Seattle Thunderbirds 1-0 in a Western Hockey League game Saturday night at Angel of the Winds Arena.
Seattle kept the Silvertips hemmed in the offensive zone and had several scoring chances in the last two minutes of the game but could not beat Dustin Wolf.
Seattle goalie Roddy Ross made 24 saves in the game and was stellar in the second period when he stopped Jacob Wright all alone in front with a big right pad save and then minutes later, stopped Goncalves on a two-on-one break.
The T-Birds return to the accesso ShoWare Center on Friday, Oct. 18, to play the Brandon Wheat Kings at 7:35 p.m.
