Trombley makes 41 saves for first WHL win as the Americans beat the Winterhawks

PORTLAND, Ore. - Troy Trombley stopped 41 shots Friday for his first Western Hockey League victory as the Tri-City Americans defeated the host Portland Winterhawks 6-2.

Zachary Yuen and Justin Feser each had a goal and two assists for the Americans (32-22-3), who halted a three-game slide, and Mitch Topping, Brian Williams and Connor Rankin had a goal and an assist apiece.

Jesse Mychan added a single goal to round out Tri-City's offence.

Chase De Leo and Oliver Bjorkstrand each had a goal and an assist for the Winterhawks (46-9-3), who fell to 23-6-1 on home ice.

Mac Carruth picked up the loss after allowing five goals on 24 shots in 45 minutes of action. Brendan Burke replaced Carruth in the third period and stopped 7-of-8 shots in relief.

Tri-City went 2 for 3 on the power play while Portland failed to score on five chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

I think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.
