‘Backs and Smokies battle to tie

Tuesday night’s action saw teams dig in and wind up even.

The Salmon Arm Silverbacks and Trail Smoke Eaters went the distance and then some in a game at the Shaw Centre on Tuesday night, but neither team could pull off the win.

Even after two overtime periods, the game remained 1-1.

Neither team was able to crack the opposing goaltender in the first two periods.

The men between the pipes kept the game scoreless until 11 minutes into the third when Connor Brown-Maloski got a shot past Silverbacks goaltender Nic Tallarico.

Carter Stephenson tied the game up for the ‘Backs four minutes later with a slap shot from the point.

Both teams’ defenses stood strong through both overtime periods concluding the game with a tie.
