Big win on the road for the Tbirds

Seattle just wrapped up a big road win over the Tri-City Americans.

Despite Tri-City playing without leading scorer Colton Yellow Horn this is a big win for a Seattle team looking to close the gap on Everett for 5th and Kelowna for 4th. Both of those teams did not play tonight so Seattle gains ground on both.

A solid effort tonight from Jacob DeSerres who had a bit of an off night on Friday in Spokane was very solid tonight. The lone surrendered to former Tbird Radek Meidl in the 2nd period. At the time the goal tied the score at 1-1 but the Tbirds were able to answer shortly after on goals by Jeremy Boyer and David Richard. For Boyer it was his 13th and for Richard it was his 12th and the second Short Handed Goal in as many nights. Richard's goal was initially recorded as unassisted but after the game assists were given to Greg Scott and Sena Acolatse. Acolatse also combined with Lindsey Nielsen assisting on Bud Holloway's goal in the 1st period that gave Seattle the lead.

Special Teams didn't play a "huge" role tonight as both teams only had 4 Power Play chances a piece. However... Seattle was not only able to keep the Americans off the board on the man advantage but cashed in that Short Handed Goal that gave them the two goal cushion and the final margin of victory.

Seattle now sits at 55 points, only 5 behind Everett for 5th place with 4 games still in hand.

Three Stars in the Arena:

1. Thomas Hickey, +2
2. Jacob DeSerres, 24 Saves
3. Radek Meidl

I'd have to also give honorable mention to: Sena Acolatse, 2 assists and also a +2 night. Bud Holloway. Jeremy Boyer.
