Americans Down, But Not Out

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- If the Tri-City Americans are to move past Spokane in the playoffs, they are going to have to earn it on the road.

Sunday night, the Ams fought back from a 2-0 deficit to tie Game 5 of their series with the Chiefs.

But in overtime, it was the Chiefs scoring the game winner, leaving the Ams in a 3-2 hole going into Game 6 Tuesday night.

"We've been through this before with many of these players," said head coach Jim Hiller. "As high as we were after the win [in Game 4], we can't get too low here after the loss [Sunday]night. We've got work to do, [Tuesday] we've got another game. We have to win one. That is all we're talking about. We're not talking about winning two right now, we're talking about winning one. We want to go up there Tuesday and playing another great game. Then, we'll talk about what happens after that."
