A small consolation prize

Chet Pickard has no trouble beating his little brother at hockey.

Chet led the Tri-City Americans to a 6-4 victory Friday over the Seattle Thunderbirds, beating his little brother Calvin, who took over in goal in the second period.

There was no hug at center ice after the game, no tap on the pads between periods, but Chet did have a little something for young Calvin -- his Xbox 360.

“When we were on our Eastern swing, my parents brought it to me and asked me to give it to Calvin,” Chet said. “I got him a copy of NHL 09.”

Now that’s brotherly love.
