After a rather disappointing start to the season, the Tri-City Americans have started to turn things around.

Four different players scored goals and Eric Comrie finished with 25 saves as the Americans thrashed the Brandon Wheat Kings 4-1 on Saturday night before a crowd of 3,657 at Toyota Center.

The Americans (8-8-0-1, 17 points) stretched their win streak to a season-high three games and finished their five-game homestand with a 4-1 record.

“It was a pretty good homestand. We needed that,” said Americans coach Jim Hiller. “That’s the real important part of the growth of a team is putting a winning streak together and feeling that your hard work and your passion is being rewarded. Then you can take the next step.”

Tri-City will head out for the first half of their Central Division swing Wednesday.

The Americans play at Medicine Hat on Friday, Lethbridge on Saturday and at Kootenay on Sunday.
