The Seattle Thunderbirds were lighting the lamp for an average of 5.3 goals a games during their current six-game win streak.
Tri-City goalie Eric Comrie slowed their production Tuesday night, but without help at the other end, the Thunderbirds continued their winning ways.
Comrie had 29 saves and allowed two goals, but that’s all Seattle needed for a 3-1 victory over the Americans before a crowd of 3,312 at Toyota Center.
“We needed Eric to make three or four remarkable saves and that’s what he does,” said Tri-City coach Jim Hiller. “He gave us a chance. We had chances at the end, but we are having a tough time scoring. That is obvious. Our structure and effort wasn’t good enough.”
Seattle (19-9-1-3, 42 points) ran its win streak to seven and moved into fourth place in the Western Conference standings.
