Penticton, B.C.- The Penticton Vees power play was the catalyst in a 5-3 come from behind win over the Salmon Arm Silverbacks, Wednesday at the SOEC.

Salmon Arm replied with a power play goal from Ethan Ullrick at 12:16 as the Silverbacks went ahead 3-1 midway through the frame.

Penticton then got back-to-back power plays late in the second period and got back-to-back goals from Bradly Nadeau. Bradly made it 3-2 with his 21st at 16:41, then he scored his 22nd of the season at 18:52 to tie it, 3-3. His first goal coming on a 5-on-3 power play, then his second during an extender man advantage, after the Silverbacks were handed a four-minute high-sticking penalty.

Suniev scored his two goals in the third period. Hi first turned out to be the game-winning goal at 6:25, on another Vees’ power play. Bradly fired a cross-ice pass over to Suniev for the one-timer. His 15th goal on the year made it 4-3. Then the 18-year-old put the game away with his second goal of the night, 16th of the season, on a breakaway with five-minutes to go. Thomas Pichette made a great lob pass down ice from his own end to spring Suniev on the breakaway.
