Pickard shuts the door on the Silvertips in 1-0 victory for Tri-City @NHL

KENNEWICK, Wash. - Tyler Schmidt scored the only goal the Tri-City Americans would need as goalie Chet Pickard notched his first shutout of the season in a 1-0 victory over the Everett Silvertips on Friday night.

Pickard stopped all 20 shots he faced, while Everett's Shayne Barrie was a workhorse, making 46 saves.

The win puts the Americans (10-3-0-0), who have won five straight, in first place in the U.S. Division after Spokane (8-2-0-3) lost 3-2 to the Seattle Thunderbirds.
