Americans hold entire team accountable rough weekend

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- The Tri-City Americans look to bounce back from a couple of weekend home losses. Wednesday Tri-City will host Prince George. 

Last Friday the weekend started fine for the Americans, a first period goal from Lucas Nickles. But from there, Medicine Hat and Portland combined to outscore Tri-City 13-4. The Americans talk about how every healthy body needs to step up.

"It's collective. It's guys on the ice at the same time. I think we saw a couple of guys wander. When guys wander, it's like basketball. One guy breaks down and 5-on-4 will get you pretty quickly the puck in your own net. I think that's what we saw," head coach Jim Hiller said.

"We've had some injuries the last couple of weeks, but we know guys can step up. Dallman is playing a lot more minutes lately, stepping up on the PK. Little things like that. Guys can really prove themselves," captain Justin Feser added.
