The Kelowna Rockets defeated the Everett Silvertips 3-2 on Sunday night in Everett, snapping a three game losing skid with the win.

Jackson Whistle made 27 saves in the win as the Rockets jumped out to a 3-0 lead before Everett scored twice to make the score 3-2 after two periods.

Colton Sissons, Ryan Olsen and JT Barnett scored for the Rockets, who shrugged off two weekend losses to Portland, bussed to Everett and picked up two points on the road.

The Rockets are in first place in the WHL BC Division and return to Prospera Place for home games this Thursday and Saturday, hosting Everett on Thursday before two games against the Kamloops Blazers including Saturday night in Kelowna.
