Tri-City Herald: Tri-City’s season ended by rival Spokane

By Annie Fowler | Tri-City Herald

The Spokane Chiefs needed just one win to advance to the Western Conference semifinals.

Saturday night, they went out and got what they needed.

Brenden Kichton had the game-winning goal and an assist to lead the Chiefs to a 3-1 victory over the Tri-City Americans before a crowd of 3,889 at the Toyota Center.

“Getting the two-goal lead was huge. We weren’t good in a lot of areas, but we found a way to win,” Spokane coach Don Nachbaur said. “We had some good chances in the third. The penalty shot — you can’t get any better chance than that to seal the deal — but we couldn’t do it. But to their credit, they played hard and they made it hard.”

Spokane won the first-round series 4-1, with its only loss coming in overtime in Game 3.
