The Great Goaltender Debate: Tri-City Americans

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Ever since Alexander Pechurskiy came to the Tri-City Americans, the Ams have juggled two goaltenders, Pechurskiy and Drew Owsley.

But, at the end of the reular season, Owsley went down with an injury and it was Pechurskiy's time.

The Ams aren't saying whether Owsley is healthy so we will just have to wait to see who will be in the net Friday night.

"We need one goaltender playing really well so you have two goaltenders for a reason," said Head Coach Jim Hiller. "You need one of them to play really well and that's what it comes down to. Whether, whoever it is, it just needs to be one guy playing well. I don't think you trick the other team by putting the other guy in. You just need the guy who is playing to play really well and if he plays really well he keeps going."
