KENT, Wash. - Luke Lockhart had two goals and an assist to pace the Seattle Thunderbirds to an 8-3 victory over the Tri-City Americans on Tuesday in the WHL.

Seattle (24-37-9) increased its lead to three points over the Everett Silvertips and seven points over Prince George for seventh place in the Western Conference with two games left to play in the regular season.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
