Tri-City Herald: Feser sets record in 3-1 Ams loss

By Annie Fowler | Tri-City Herald

On a night when the Tri-City Americans honored captain Justin Feser for setting the WHL Iron Man record with 312 consecutive games, the Seattle Thunderbirds threw a monkey wrench into the celebration.

First-period goals by Seth Swenson and Roberts Lipsbergs were all Seattle needed in a 3-1 victory Friday over the Americans before a crowd of 5,040 at Toyota Center.

“Give them credit, I thought they were hungrier than us,” Tri-City coach Jim Hiller said. “When you win you feel good about yourself, and there’s nothing wrong with that, but you can’t forget how you got there. Tonight, we didn’t want to work without the puck.”

The Americans (37-23-1-2, 77 points), who saw their six-game win streak come to an end, slipped to fifth in the Western Conference, one point behind Spokane, which beat Victoria in overtime.

Tri-City, which has a game in hand on the Chiefs, plays at Seattle tonight.
