SEATTLE, Wash - The Tri-City Americans' hopes to stay alive in the playoffs are dwindling! Tonight the Ams dropped their third game to Seattle by a score of 2-0. Tri-City fired off only 24 shots and were unable to connect on 11 power plays. The Thunderbirds lead the best of 7 series by two games. Friday night's game five will be at the Toyota Center at 7:05. If Seattle wins that game the T-birds will knock the Americans out of the playoffs.
