The Tri-City Americans made a stop at Tim Horton's for coffee and pastries Monday afternoon in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, before heading north to Saskatoon, where they will make camp the next three days.

"Tim Hortons is about $350 richer," Americans coach Jim Hiller joked on the phone.

The stop was a well-deserved treat for the Americans, who are 2-0 on their six-game trek through the East Division. Over their last six games, they are 5-0-0-1, including three consecutive wins on the road.

Tri-City topped the Brandon Wheat Kings 4-3 on Saturday, then faced off against former teammate Jordan Messier and the Moose Jaw Warriors on Sunday, coming away with a 5-0 win.

Today, the Americans (6-3-0-1, 13 points) face East Division-leading Prince Albert (7-2-0-1, 15 points), and Wednesday they will take on the Saskatoon Blades (4-7-0-0, 8 points), who are at the other end of the division standings but have won two in a row.
