Tri-City Herald: Tri-City clinches playoff spot, hosts Vancouver

By Annie Fowler | Tri-City Herald

The Tri-City Americans earned a playoff spot Monday and they didn’t even have to lace up their skates.

With Prince George’s 6-0 loss Monday to the Edmonton Oil Kings, the Americans, Spokane Chiefs and Victoria Royals all moved into the postseason.

The Portland Winterhawks already have won the U.S. Division title, picking up the honor after Tri-City beat Spokane on Saturday.

Now that the Americans have a guaranteed spot in the playoffs, their mission now is to get healthy.

Tri-City (33-22-1-2, 69 points) is at home with Vancouver (15-43-2-0, 32 points) tonight, and with Beau McCue, Ryan Chynoweth and now Justin Gutierrez on the sidelines, the Americans brought in a reinforcement this week — forward Fraser Bulbuc from Sherwood Park, Alberta.
