OK, here's something for the nostalgia lovers.

For Everett's game Friday against Prince George the Tips put together a line of Matt Fonteyne at center, Patrick Bajkov at right wing and Jake Mykitiuk at left wing. I was struck at just how identical it was to Everett's fourth line in 2006-07 when the Tips won the Scotty Munro Trophy for the league's best record. Consider:

- At center you have a 17-year-old third-round bantam draft pick in his second season with...

TALKING POINTS

The past two nights the third periods have been night and day for the Silvertips.

On Friday the Tips took a 1-0 lead into the third period against Prince George, but surrendered the initiative and ended up losing 3-1. It was a pattern that's become all too familiar for Everett the past month.

On Saturday the Tips carried a 4-2 lead in the third against Tri-City, and I imagine many of us were wondering if the...

If I can paraphrase the comedian Chris Rock, "Those Silvertips ain't go crazy, those Silvertips went Silvertips!" (you'll have to search for the tiger quote yourself).

Everett fell back into its bad third-period habits again. The Tips led 1-0 going into the third and had a 20-10 edge on the shot clock. It seemed like Everett should have been in control of the game.

But as has become all too frequent for Everett over...

Everett won another shootout Tuesday when the Tips topped Tri-City, winning a six-round shootout 1-0.

The victory was Everett's fourth in a shootout this season, and the Tips at 4-1 sit at the top of the WHL's shootout standings.

The holidays are approaching, which means it's teddy bear toss season in the WHL.

The teddy bear toss is simple. Fans are encouraged to bring teddy bears to the game, and after the home team scores its first goal the teddy bears get tossed onto the ice. They are then collected and donated to local charities.

That was a fun game to watch.

Medicine Hat has a really good team, and the Tigers have played the same style for as long as I can remember. Medicine Hat always has a bunch of small, fast forwards, and they aren't just fast of foot, they play a fast game as they're constantly moving the puck. It makes for very entertaining hockey.

Everett actually outshot the Tigers 31-16, and I thought the Tips played pretty well. But...

The Tips moved to address their depth issues up front Thursday, bringing in 19-year-old forward Jake Mykitiuk from the AJHL's Spruce Grove Saints.

Mykitiuk, who's from St. Albert, Alberta, spent his 16- and 17-year-old seasons in the WHL with the Prince George Cougars, where he was probably best known for being short. He spent the past two seasons in the AJHL with the Saints,...

This game was all set up to be another third-period disaster for Everett.

The Tips entered the third period leading 3-1. They gave up a goal less than six minutes into the third. They were playing a Spokane team that's given Everett more trouble in the third period than any other in the league. And with the Tips fresh off blowing a 3-0 third-period lead against Kootenay on Sunday, there was a definite sense of, "Here we go...

When Kevin Constantine invokes the memory of Game 5 against Prince George in the 2007 playoffs during a postgame interview, you know bad things went down.

This was an absolutely brutal loss for the Tips. Everett led 3-0 after two periods and was in complete control against a road-weary Kootenay team playing its third game in three nights. But the Tips went full Keystone Kops in the third period and overtime to toss this one away.

Somewhere on high it was mandated the Everett Silvertips and Seattle Thunderbirds shall play close games from now until eternity.

For four-plus seasons the series between the I-5 rivals has been a dead heat. The previous four campaigns the 10-game season series was split 5-5. Last season six of the 10 games were decided by one goal. The previous three meetings this season were a 1-0 regulation result, a 2-1 overtime result and a...

This was eerie.

The Tips and the Blazers squared off 11 days earlier at Xfinity Arena, and Wednesday's game nearly followed the script from that game to a T. The Tips dominated the first period and took a 2-0 lead, just as they did on Nov. 15. Play evened out in the second period, just as it did on Nov. 15. Then Kamloops took the initiative in the third, just as it did on Nov. 15.

Even at the very end, with Kamloops...

So far we've had general reports on the status of Silvertips star winger Nikita Scherbak, who was stretchered off the ice during Saturday's 3-2 shootout victory at Seattle. Well, here's some specific details about what happened:

- Scherbak was heading along the right boards looking to slip past the check of Seattle's Keegan Kolesar, who was speeding across the ice in an attempt to cut Scherbak off.
