Americans Ready for Back-to-Back Games Against Seattle

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Times are good for the Tri-City Americans. The Ams have won 4 of their last 5.

On Friday, Winger and the boys back on the ice to take on Seattle at the Toyota Center. It is then a rematch with the T-Birds Saturday in Seattle.

Right now, Tri-City is 2nd in the US Division Standings, Seattle stands 3rd. But, the Ams are 3-0 against the T-Birds so far this season.

But, they know getting win number 4 won't be easy.

"They're a good team this year," said Defensman Spencer Humphries. "They're big and fast but I think we're better. We're a little bit smaller but we play just as hard and just as gritty as them so it's usually a good game."

"Their goaltender is unreal and he can steal games for them every night so we just got to keep getting pucks to the net and hopefully get those chances in," said Defenseman Zachary Yuen.

"They're good," said Sam Grist. "They're fast and they have got some pretty big guys. They're a physical team but we should beat them, no problem."

The back-to-back games against Seattle start Friday night at 7:05pm at the Toyota Center.
