It was quite a journey to Everett for the Swift Current Broncos last season. The team, staff, media and a surprising number of fans made the trip about as far away from Swift Current as it could get for the WHL team. Swift Current knew they’d have to win at least once to bring the series back home. They did one better than that and in dramatic fashion too!

Round 3 – Game 3: Broncos 3 Silvertips 2 (OT)

One player scoring an overtime winner to complete a hat trick would be notable enough.

How about three?

For the third time in this playoff run the Swift Current Broncos got an overtime winner from a player finishing off their hat trick and this time it was on the biggest stage.

Glenn Gawdin scored his third of the night just 2:40 into overtime as the Broncos erased a 2-1 deficit to beat Everett 3-2 and take a 2-1 lead in the WHL Championship Series.

“It feels good,” Gawdin said. “I’m happy we got the win, but we need two more.”

Gawdin’s feat comes on the heels of similar achievements by Matteo Gennaro against Moose Jaw and Giorgio Estephan in the Lethbridge series.

Round 4 – Game 4: Broncos 1 Silvertips 0

Stuart Skinner has been concentrating on having fun on his third WHL playoff run and what could be more fun than hoisting the Ed Chynoweth Cup?

Skinner delivered another superstar performance with 32 saves for his fifth shutout of the playoffs as the Swift Current Broncos beat Everett 1-0 and took a 3-1 lead in the WHL Championship Series.

“I’m really happy with how my team played in front of me,” Skinner said. “I thought our PK was really strong tonight especially in the second period when they got a couple good opportunities. We were able to stay strong… the whole time I’ve just been having fun and doing my best.”

Colby Sissons scored the lone goal of the game late in the second period on a Swift Current power play. Just as the Broncos went to the man advantage he entered the zone and wired his fifth of the playoffs top shelf on Carter Hart.

Round 4 – Game 5: Silvertips 6 Broncos 3

Connor Dewar scored twice into an empty-net as the Everett Silvertips survived their final home game of the season to force Game 6 in the WHL Championship Series.

Riley Sutter had a goal and two assists in the win for Everett.

The Silvertips came out strong with an aggressive forecheck and desperation in securing a 6-3 win over Swift Current and keeping the series going. The Broncos now lead 3-2 with Game 6 set for Sunday at the Innovation Credit Union iPlex.
