The score remained that way until the second, when Everett got on the board just over three minutes in on a Martin Fasko-Rudas rebound goal. The Silvertips then made it 4-0 on the powerplay, when Bajkov fired home his second of the game at the 15:09 mark of the second frame. Late in the period, Everett made it 5-0 on a goal from Garrett Pilon.
In the third, Patrick Bajkov registered his third goal of the night on a powerplay to make a 6-0 final for Everett. With the win, Everett ties the best-of-seven second-round series at 1.
