Beau McCue leads Tri-City Americans over Seattle Thunderbirds 4-1

KENT, Wash. - Beau McCue scored twice Tuesday to lift the Tri-City Americans to a 4-1 win over the Seattle Thunderbirds in the Western Hockey League.

McCue, who has 11 goals this season, opened the scoring for Tri-City just 58 seconds after the opening faceoff.

Justin Hickman tied it for the Thunderbirds later in the period with a power-play goal.

Tri-City took the lead on the first goal of the season by Ryan Chynoweth in the second period. Malte Stromwall, who also had two assists, made it 3-1 in the third period before McCue rounded out the scoring at 14:00.

Eric Comrie made 29 saves for Tri-City, now 20-12-3 on the season.

Seattle lost its fifth straight and is now 16-17-2.

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
