Jaret Anderson-Dolan lifts Chiefs to another OT win over Tri-City Americans

UPDATED: Fri., March 2, 2018, 10:45 p.m.

KENNEWICK – Jaret Anderson-Dolan and the Spokane Chiefs are heating up at the right time.

Anderson-Dolan scored the winning goal with 1 minute, 9 seconds remaining in overtime Friday night and the Chiefs defeated the Tri-City Americans 5-4 in a Western Hockey League matchup at Toyota Center.

The Chiefs’ fourth consecutive victory matches their season high, which they have reached three times in the past month and a half. In their past 19 games the Chiefs have only four losses – two in regulation and two in overtime.

Anderson-Dolan netted the winner after stealing the puck near center ice and beating Americans goalie Patrick Dea for the unassisted goal. Anderson-Dolan has a team-high 35 goals this season.

The Chiefs and Americans have played overtime in six of their 10 meetings this season, with the Chiefs winning four of the extra-period games.

As Spokane continues to strengthen its playoff positioning, the Chiefs are 37-21-3-2. With 79 points, they trail second-place Portland by two in the U.S. Division.

Spokane, which is 2-0 to open a six-game road trip, plays at Kelowna at 7:05 p.m. on Saturday.
