The Tri-City Americans have played so well on the road this season that coach Jim Hiller has no doubt the success will carry over to a pair of games at Prince George tonight and Tuesday.

“This team has been pretty resilient all year and I’m confident we can meet the challenge again,” said Hiller, whose team has won 20 games on the road this season. “This team has been pretty special this year. We have been good, and we strive for perfection as a whole. I’m proud of what we have accomplished.”

The Americans (38-23-1-2, 79 points), who have won seven of their last 10 games, have won 20 or more games on the road five of the last seven years.

Tri-City, which beat the Seattle Thunderbirds 5-3 on Saturday, left Kent Sunday morning for the 12-hour drive to Prince George in central British Columbia.
