KAMLOOPS — 16-year old Dustin Wolf stopped 20 shots to backstop the Everett Silvertips to a 4-0 win over the Kamloops Blazers Sunday afternoon in Everett.,

It was the fifth straight loss for Kamloops ---- five games in which they have have managed only one point, in a shootout loss to Prince George.

With 12 games left the Blazers are eight points out of a wild card.

Yesterday was the first meeting between Kamloops and Everett since a big trade ahead of the January deadline that saw the Blazers send Garrett Pilon and Ondrej Vala to the Silvertips for Orrin Centazzo and Montana Onyebuchi.

None of the four players in that deal figured in yesterday's scoring.

The Blazers play their next four games on the road, starting Wednesday in Portland.

Blazers end losing streak, edge closer to wild card
