Tri-City Herald: The Americans are scuffling and need some wins this weekend

By Annie Fowler | Tri-City Herald

The Tri-City Americans’ hold on fourth place in the Western Conference was so brief that it barely registered in the hockey world.

They had won three consecutive games to move up in the standings and overtake rival Spokane, but costly losses to Victoria, Spokane, and most recently an embarrassing home loss to the Calgary Hitmen, and the Americans (31-22-2-0, 65 points) find themselves in sixth place, three points behind the Royals and Chiefs who each have 68 points.

“We are deep into this thing (season) and the players have proven that winnings matters to them,” Tri-City coach Jim Hiller said. “They want to compete and they want to win. There is a lot of pride.”

After Tuesday’s 6-2 loss to Calgary, the Americans will have to dig deep to pick up four points this weekend. They play at Portland (46-8-1-2, 95 points) tonight and host Spokane on Saturday. The Chiefs (33-22-2-0) are at Everett tonight.
