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

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
