The Silvertips extended their lead to 4-1 with a power play goal at 12:53 of the second period as team captain Matt Fonteyne deflected a shot off a Chiefs defenseman for his 24th of the season.

Spokane continued to battle, eventually cutting the lead to 4-2 with a Hudson Elynuik goal at 4:42 of the third, but the Chiefs couldn’t get any closer before Pilon completed his hat trick on an empty net late.
