Whittingham scores twice as the Chiefs down the Americans

SPOKANE, Wash. - Riley Whittingham scored two goals as the Spokane Chiefs downed the visiting Tri-City Americans 5-2 on Saturday in Western Hockey League play.

Adam Helewka, Mike Aviani and Connor Chartier also scored for the Chiefs (31-21-2) while Eric Williams made 30 saves for the win.

Lucas Nickels and Brian Williams scored for the Americans (31-20-3) and Luke Lee-Knight turned away 27 shots in a losing cause.

Spokane went 1 for 6 on the power play while Tri-City failed to score on its only chance with the man advantage.

The Chiefs are now just one point behind the Americans for fifth spot in the Western Conference.

Quote of the Day

Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
