Hart, a second round draft pick of the Philadelphia Flyers, was solid all night as he made 37 saves and was especially sharp in the final frame as he stopped all 20 shots fired his way.

Victoria buzzed around the net throughout the contest, and besides a marker from Regan Nagy were unable to beat Hart. Everett’s Noah Juulsen tallied a pair of goals on the night, including an empty-net marker, while Dominic Zwerger recorded the game winning goal for the Silvertips.
