Recap: Americans Top Giants with Goals from 7 Different Scorers

The Tri-City Americans defeated the Vancouver Giants tonight 7-3 with goals from seven different scorers. It was Tri-City’s first victory on the road since they defeated the Wheat Kings in Brandon on November 4th.

Tyson Greenway, who celebrated his 20th birthday today, opened scoring 4:11 into the game on the power play, scoring with a sharp-angle shot from the blueline that bounced in off the post. Midway through the period Alex Serraglio, a Langley, B.C. native, extended Tri-City’s lead to 2-0 as he sniped a shot top-shelf over the right shoulder of Giants goaltender Jesper Vikman.

Tri-City out shot Vancouver 8-5 in the first period.

Offense exploded in the second period for the Americans, beginning with a goal from Jalen Luypen just a minute into the period. The Chicago Blackhawks prospect swept in a loose puck in the crease after an odd-man rush set up by Reese Belton. Chase Friedt-Mohr followed a minute later with Tri-City’s fourth goal as he beat Vikman glove-side with a shot from the top of right circle. Halfway through the period Luypen set up Parker Bell on a shorthanded, odd-man rush. The Calgary Flames prospect tapped home another goal for the Ams, the first shorthanded marker of his WHL career. Tri-City continued to build on their lead with goals from Elouann Lemonnier and Ethan Ernst.

The Americans held a 7-0 lead after 40 minutes of play. They out shot Vancouver 17-4 in the second frame.

Tri-City’s offense halted and the Giants found their groove in the third period, scoring three straight goals. The night finished with a 7-3 victory for the Americans.

Tomas Suchanek and Adam Mechura returned to the lineup tonight after competing with Czechia, and earning a Silver Medal, at the recent World Junior Championship.
