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

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
