TCH: Late goal lifts Americans past Blazers

By Annie Fowler | Tri-City Herald

The Tri-City Americans’ power play hasn’t been very profitable this season, but Tuesday night it paid big dividends.

The Americans scored twice on the man advantage, including the game winner by Lucas Nickles with 1:38 to play, to squeak past the Kamloops Blazers 2-1 before an announced crowd of 3,052 at the Toyota Center.

“That was a really exciting game,” said Americans goalie Eric Comrie, who finished with 26 saves. “And a really big game for our team standings wise. We just have to keep building on this one for the weekend.”

The Americans (19-19-2-2, 42 points), who are 3-0 against the Blazers this season, stayed one step ahead of the Prince George Cougars, who are five points back of Tri-City for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Kamloops (10-28-2-2), the last-place team in the Western Conference, lost its third in a row.
