Larry Brunt

SPOKANE, WA – After falling to the Everett Silvertips 5-0 last night in Kennewick, the Americans’ offensive struggles continued again tonight in Spokane. Tri-City was once again shut out, falling to the Chiefs 6-0.

The Americans started tonight’s game strong holding the Chiefs scoreless through the first period.

Spokane found their groove early into the second frame getting on the board just 53 seconds into the period with a goal from Jack Finley. Less than two minutes later Finley added his second of the night to give the Cheifs’ a 2-0 lead.

Americans netminder Talyn Boyko played tonight in his first game since being injured on January 17th in Kamloops. Boyko stopped 38 of 44 shots faced tonight from Spokane.

The Chiefs went on to add two more goals in the second period and another two in the third to take a 6-0 final victory. Two of the three goals were scored with a man advantage.
