No the sky isn't falling, but it sure felt like it when the Americans lost at home last night. Tri-City losing for the first time at home in 14 games, 4-3 to the Kelowna Rockets.
The Americans giving up a couple chances in front, and the Rockets didn't miss. On the other end, the Ams struggled on the power play failing to convert on four opportunities. After the game the team talked about not playing hard for the entire game.
Head coach Jim Hiller said, "When the feet aren't moving, the head's not moving to well either. That's... We were just foggy. We've seen our team at times out of sync. Where it looks like geez. Nobody can make a pass."
Ams forward Carter Ashton added, "Just learning to play in tight games. We've had some easy games lately.. Scoring six... Seven goals. And I think we got to learn how to play with... Tight games one or two goals."
Ams defenseman Matt MacKenzie"They played a really good road game. And they kinda took it to us physically. We just couldn't match it."
