Tbirds defeat Everett 5-2, plus Team awards

Seattle finishes the regular season with a 5-2 win over Everett. Everett rested several of their key players including Hamill, Gendur and Kyle Beach. Beach was no where to be seen in the arena though... hmmm...

With the win, Seattle goes over the 90 point mark on the season and finishes 42-23-5-2 which is good for 91 points, scoring 241 goals (never saw that happening around December 1st) and giving up 179 goals.

Jacob DeSerres was excellent and borderline unreal in the win. Not only did he make 36 saves on 38 shots in the win, but several of the saves were of the highlight reel variety and if Seattle had been a little less sloppy in their own end he likely would have had a 38 save shutout or perhaps 37 saves.

Prab Rai also scored in the 3rd period for his 20th of the season. Seattle finishes with five 20 goal scorers and narrowly missed the 6th as Ian McKenzie's backhand clanked off the post in the 2nd period before Jan Eberle finished for his 7th of the year.

Greg Scott did not score and finished with 38 goals, just short of the 40 goal mark.

Seattle opens the first round of the playoffs at home against the Kelowna Rockets on Friday for Game 1 and Saturday for Game 2. I will have more thoughts and previews later in the week.

After the game we saw the season ending Award Ceremony and I will have to remember all of them off the top of my head.
