Chris Mast

For the first time in a span of 12 games, the Vancouver Giants lost a hockey game. Saturday night in front of nearly 8000-strong in Everett, WA the Giants (30-21-3-2) dropped a 2-1 decision to the Everett Silvertips (39-12-3-1). Gage Concalves’ power play goal late in the third period broke up the 1-1 score and sent Everett to their fifth victory in a row. Bryce Kindopp also scored for Everett. The Giants got their lone goal from Milos Roman and received 33 saves from Trent Miner. It marked the end of a spectacular 11-game winning streak for the Vancouver Giants, matching their longest ever regular season winning streak (Set in 2008-09).
