Seattle vs. Prince Albert Recap

Here is a link to the Seattle Time Recap: In short... Seattle wins tonight 3-1 over the Raiders in a very business-like fashion. Seattle gets goals from Brenden Silvester (his 1st in the WHL) and Charles Wells (his 2nd) and pretty much put on the cruise control in the 3rd period for the win.Seattle showed a lot of focus by coming out strong in the 1st period and grabbing a 2-0 lead, instead of allowing a team like P.A. to grab an early lead on them (something Everett allowed them to do). Holloway had a nifty setup on Silvester's goal and also helped to set up Greg Scott's goal in the 1st period that gave the Thunderbirds the 2-0 advantage. One thing I noticed last night was how much ice time everyone is sharing. Seattle was able to get some really good minutes from their 3rd and 4th lines with Silvester, Wells, Quakenbush and Boyer. It seems like Coach Rob Sumner has found a really nice rhythm trying to get everyone rotated into ice time and it is definitely paying off.

Seattle lost their focus a little bit in the 2nd period while the Raiders out shot them 12-7 and got the game to 2-1 before Wells answered 53 seconds later to restore the 2 goal lead. On the play Prince Albert was caught in a bad line change and an outstanding pass by David Richard gave Jim O'Brien and Wells the 2 on 0 against the goaltender Steven Stanford. O'Brien made the perfect feed and Wells finished over the top of the helpless Stanford.

Seattle then regained their focus in the 3rd period and put the game away out shooting P.A. 19-8 in the final frame.

Riku Helenius was solid again in goal, especially tested in the 2nd period, and finished with 27 saves on 28 shots.

Let's Go Birds Three Stars of the Game:

1. Holloway, 2 assists and led the effort
2. Helenius, solid in net for the W
3. Silvester, for his 1st WHL goal

In the Arena:
We agree tonight 100%
