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.
Jamie improves every game and every year. I've only been with him for two years, but as a player and as a person it seems like every week he's getting stronger and better, and becoming a better leader and better captain. He wants the team to be so successful that he's making himself better as a player.
