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.
