Curtis Valk and Tommy Vannelli each scored in the shootout as Medicine Hat overcame a 2-0 deficit to beat the Tri-City Americans 3-2 on Friday night.
The Americans (8-8-0-2), in the first game of their three-game Central Division road swing, got goals from Parker Bowles and Beau McCue to take a 2-0 lead in the second period.
Steven Owre pulled the Tigers (11-3-2-0) within 2-1 with a goal at 16:06 of the second, while Logan McVeigh tied the game at 14:18 of the third.
Americans goalie Eric Comrie had stopped three consecutive shots before McVeigh was able to put the puck in the net. Comrie finished with 28 saves.
Never miss a local story.
Bowles, in his first game this season, turned a Dylan Bredo turnover into an unassisted goal to open the scoring at 11:54 of the second.
