The ShoWare Center was exploding with excitement this past week as the Seattle Thunderbirds swept the Everett Silvertips 4-0 and are now boasting an impressive 8-0 in the 2017 WHL Western Conference Playoffs! We couldn’t be more proud to be supporting the Thunderbirds as their official team doctors. Helping these players stay healthy and in tip-top shape this season has been such an honor.
Seattle is 8-0 in the 2017 playoffs and 20-1 in postseason games against Western Conference opponents the last two years. What is the postseason secret?
“I respect the heck out of all the players in there,” coach Steve Konowalchuk said outside the T-birds’ celebratory locker room. “It really starts with the leadership in there.”
The victory lifts the Thunderbirds into the Western Conference finals for the second straight year. They will open at home against the Kelowna Rockets on Friday.
Seattle scored twice in each of the first two periods and maintained constant offensive pressure. The T-birds outshot Everett 17-6 in the second period and 31-25 for the game.
