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

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
