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

I spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.
