Tri-City Americans roll Everett Silvertips 3-1 with three straight goals

KENNEWICK, Wash. - Tri-City scored three unanswered goals on Thursday as the Americans for a 3-1 win over the Everett Silvertips in Western Hockey League action.

Brian Williams and Malte Stromwall had power-play goals for Tri-City (1-2-0), while Justin Feser added an empty-net goal. Eric Comrie made 28 saves for the win.

"Winning is the best feeling in the world," said Comrie. "Everyone comes together. You could tell before the game everyone was excited for this. That's what got us this win."

Manraj Hayer was the lone scorer for Everett (0-2-1) and Austin Lotz stopped 33 shots.

The Americans were 2-for-6 on the power play, while the Silvertips went 0-for-4 with the man advantage.

Williams tied the game 1-1, then Stromwall scored in the second and Feser added the insurance goal with four seconds left to play.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
