Lotz made 65 saves but he was beat by Cole Ully's penalty shot in overtime that lifted the Kamloops Blazers to a 4-3 victory in Western Hockey League play Wednesday.
Ully, who also scored in regulation, was granted the penalty shot after Silvertips defenceman Ben Betker was sent off for tripping just 1:17 into overtime.
Lotz meanwhile was stellar from the start, blanking the Blazers through a first period where Everett was outshot 29-6 but still lead 2-0.
Elsewhere in the WHL it was: Edmonton 4, Saskatoon 2; Kootenay 3, Medicine Hat 2; Prince Albert 3, Prince George 2; and Spokane 5, Portland 4 (SO).
At Kamloops, B.C., Tim Bozon, JC Lipon and Ully each scored in the second period as the Blazers (31-14-5) finally broke through against Lotz.
Reid Petryk and Mirco Mueller each scored in the first period for Everett (20-26-3), while Ryan Harrison's short-handed goal 5:40 into the third sent the game to OT.
