EVERETT, Wash. — The Red Deer Rebels got off to a terrible start and could never recover as they dropped a 4-1 decision to the Everett Silvertips in Western Hockey League action before 2,657 fans Wednesday.

The ‘Tips jumped all over Red Deer starting netminder Lasse Petersen as Dominic Zwerger connected just 26 seconds into the game and Patrick Bajkov made it 2-0 at 2:13.

Petersen and his teammates settled down after the second goal with both teams finishing with 10 shots in the first period.

However, Zwerger made it 3-0 with a power play goal at 6:53 of the second period. Michael Spacek gave the Rebels a bit of life as he connected on his ninth goal of the season at 14:07 of the middle stanza.

But that was all they could get past Everett netminder Carter Hart, who finished with 27 saves. Petersen had 28 saves.

The Silvertips put the game away at 11:11 of the third period when Eatu Tuulola scored on a penalty shot.

The Rebels failed to score on four power play opportunities while Everett was one-for-three.
