Comrie makes 35 saves as the Americans blank the Silvertips 2-0

EVERETT, Wash. - Eric Comrie turned aside all 35 shots he faced to lead the Tri-City Americans to a 2-0 victory over the host Everett Silvertips on Wednesday night in Western Hockey League action.

The 17-year-old Comrie faced all kinds of pressure, particularly in the third period when Everett produced 18 shots.

Malte Stromwall and Jordan Messier scored for the Americans (2-3-0), who have earned both their victories this season against Everett.

Austin Lotz stopped 20 shots in a losing effort (1-3-1).

Tri-City went 1-for-2 on the power play while Everett failed to score on five chances with the man advantage.

Everett has been shutout in two of their five games this season.

Quote of the Day

Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
