Chiefs 4, Americans 3 OT: Liam Stewart scores at 9:33 of OT to tie series at 3-3 and send it to Game 7, which will be Wednesday at Toyota Center.
Americans 3, Chiefs 3, end of regulation: We are going overtime my friends. This is the third OT game of the series. The Chiefs won the first two, so the Ams are due to put this one away.
No shortage of excitement here at Spokane Arena.
Americans 3, Chiefs 3, end of second: Patrick Holland's goal at 18:31 ties the game at 3.
Spokane had a 2-1 lead going into the second, but Justin Feser's shorty at 8:47 tied the game. Just 33 seconds later, Spokane goes back on top 3-2 with a PP goal by Steve Kuhn.
I hear the fans at Kimo's are pretty wild right now. Nice to know. Ams win this one and Kimo's might need a new roof.
Chiefs 2, Americans 1, end of first: TC scores first with goal by Derek Ryckman, but Chiefs come back with goals by Dominik Uher and Mitch Holmberg for 2-1 lead. Ams will continue PP when second period opens.
It's nice to know that someone reads this. Actually two people responded that they always read it. Thanks for reading. Nice to know I'm not talking to myself.
Pregame: High above the ice here at Spokane Arena. The fans are starting to trickle in. Not sure what kind of a crowd Monday games draw, but it is Game 6 and the Chiefs are on the brink of elimination.
Me, I picked the Ams to finish this series in 6 games, and I'd like to think I might know something every once in awhile.
For those back home, you can watch the game on TV if you have Charter, if not, head on down to Kimo's and join the mob of Ams fans who have to work bright and early Tuesday and couldn't make the trip to Spokane. Besides, it's no fun to watch it alone.
The teams are on the ice for warmups. I never have liked the fact the teams warm up on one end, then start the game on the other end. This is the only rink in the league that does that. Something about season tickets holders who want to see the Chiefs shoot twice at the non-Zamboni end, and after a remodel years ago that wasn't going to happen. So, they do this. Be adventurous and try out the other end of the rink. A true fan wouldn't care.
Starters: Tri-City has Ty Rimmer in net, with Justin Hamonic and Mitch Topping on the blue line and the 300-point line of Brendan Shinnimin, Adam Hughesman and Patrick Holland up front. Such a dangerous line.
For Spokane, Eric Williams is in net. Corbin Baldwin and Davis Vandane are on defense, while Blake Gal, Steve Kuhn and Dominik Uher are the forwards.
On their best behavior: I'm talking about the officials calling the game tonight. Kevin Muench, director of officiating for the WHL is in the house. I guess he got my cryptic messages about his men in stripes and came to take a look-see for himself.
Puck drops in 20.
