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.
The Royals allowed 13 shots in the contest, which tied the franchise record for the least amount of shots given up in a game. The last time this occurred was on March 7th, 2012 in Everett.
Victoria netminder Griffen Outhouse turned aside 11 of the 13 shots he faced.
The Royals will now head on a four-game road trip that begins on Tuesday, October 25th against the Kamloops Blazers. Puck drop is slated for 7:00 p.m.
Victoria will return home on Tuesday, November 1st for a match against the Red Deer Rebels with puck drop scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
