KENNEWICK, Wash. - The Spokane Chiefs were defeated 3-0 by the Tri-City Americans on Saturday night, marking the end of the Chiefs' regular season schedule. The Chiefs finish the year with an 0-1 record versus the rival Americans.

The Chiefs finished 0 for 3 on the power play and 5 for 7 on the penalty kill.

With the loss, the Chiefs are locked in to the 6th Seed in the Western Conference and will face the Victoria Royals in the 1st Round. The schedule for the playoffs is yet to be finalized.
