TCH: Ams beat Seattle, push win streak to 4

By Annie Fowler | Tri-City Herald

The Tri-City Americans have faced their fare share of bad luck this season, but things are starting to turn around.

Eric Comrie had 37 saves and Beau McCue added a goal and an assist as the Americans won their fourth consecutive game with a 3-1 victory over Seattle before a Friday night crowd of 5,199 at Toyota Center.

Celebrating Nuclear Night, the Americans blasted the Thunderbirds’ seven-game winning streak out of the water, while winning their seventh in a row on home.

“It’s awesome to get these wins at home,” said Tri-City forward Devon McAndrews, who had a second-period goal. “The fans are awesome here. It’s a wonderful place to play when the fans are on your side. The atmosphere was unreal and the fans were into it. A fun night for sure.”

The Americans (24-21-2-2, 52 points), who opened up a nine-point lead on Prince George in the race for a playoff spot, are 5-1 on Nuclear Night, winning the first four before a 7-0 setback to Portland last year.
