The Tri-City Americans fell to 0-3 against their chief rival Spokane in 2012, suffering a 3-2 home loss Saturday at Toyota Center.
But the big discussion in the Ams locker room wasn’t about how to beat the Chiefs so much as how to build on a strong third period in which Tri-City scored two goals to get back into what looked like an early rout.
“There were lots of good things about the second half,” Tri-City coach Jim Hiller said. ”In the first half, we didn’t play with a lot of energy. We made a few mistakes — not that many, but a high percentage of them ended up in the net.”
