TCH: Ams try to reset vs. Royals

By Annie Fowler | Tri-City Herald

If there was a restart button in the Western Hockey League, the Tri-City Americans would first in line to press the magic dot.

After a WHL record of seven consecutive seasons of winning 40 games or more, the Americans find themselves struggling to score goals. They hope to turn things around as they begin a five-game homestand tonight with a 4-7-0-1 record.

“We just need some more goals, however they come,” said Americans coach Jim Hiller, whose team is averaging 2.3 goals per game. “(Goalie) Eric (Comrie) is doing a great job keeping us in there and giving us a chance, and our guys, we are creating opportunities, we just need to finish them.”

The Victoria Royals (8-5-0-0) visit the Americans tonight, while the Portland Winterhawks (5-3-0-1) are at Toyota Center on Saturday.

Tri-City lost a 2-1 game at Victoria on Oct. 6, and are 1-1 against Portland, beating the Winterhawks 6-2, while dropping a 4-1 game Wednesday.
