Everett’s Sean Richards was called for a checking to the head major while the Silvertips were on a power play. After 19 seconds of four-on-four play, the T-Birds had a power play for 4:41.

Dillon Hamaliuk tied the game 1-1 a second after the five-minute major penalty ended.

Hamaliuk came out of the right corner and powered to the net, beating Everett goalie Dustin Wolf with a shot over the right pad for his fourth goal in as many games. Noah Philp and Jake Lee had the assists.

Dewar won the game 17 seconds into overtime off an assist from Kindopp.

Wolf had 16 saves on 17 shots.
