Tri-City Herald: Feser leads Ams to 4-3 overtime win over T-birds

By Annie Fowler | Tri-City Herald

Jim Hiller isn’t much of a gambler, but when the game was on the line, the Tri-City Americans’ head coach pulled an ace out of his pocket.

After Hiller twice pulled goaltender Luke Lee-Knight, Justin Feser tied the score late in the third period, then added the game-winner 27 seconds into overtime to rally the Americans to a 4-3 win Saturday over the Seattle Thunderbirds at ShoWare Center in Kent.

“We weren’t in it for 40 minutes,” said Hiller, whose team won all three games during the week. “We got after it the last 20 and got on the bus with a win. We were short-handed tonight, but we got a lot from a lot of people. The penalty kill and goaltending gave us a lot. Lucas Nickles had his best game.

“It was a good week. This is a tough time of the year, and the pressure increases week after week.”
