Feser scores twice as the Americans edge the Thunderbirds in OT

KENT, Wash. - Justin Feser scored twice, including the winner 27 seconds into overtime, as the Tri-City Americans edged the host Seattle Thunderbirds 4-3 on Saturday in Western Hockey League play.

Malte Stromwall and Parker Bowles each had a goal and an assist for the Americans (31-19-3), who have won three games in a row, and Luke Lee-Knight made 32 saves for the win.

Jesse Forsberg, Seth Swenson and Connor Sanvido scored for the Thunderbirds (19-29-5), who hold down the final playoff spot in the Western Conference, and Brandon Glover turned aside 24 shots in a losing cause.

Both clubs went 0 for 4 on the power play.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
