Tri-City Americans stomp Chiefs

KENNEWICK – Rather than finding a way to get back on the winning path, the Spokane Chiefs ran into a buzz saw Saturday. The Tri-City Americans (12-8-1-1) scored four goals in the first period and added three more in the second, eventually beating the Chiefs (10-9-1-1) 8-3 in the Toyota Center.

Chiefs silence Tri-City Americans

It was a game that was played on the edge until the Spokane Chiefs pushed the Tri-City Americans over it. Three goals in the last half of the second period of a Western Hockey League game played with playoff intensity led the Chiefs to smothering 5-0 win over their rivals Saturday night at the Arena.

Chiefs’ late goals beat Americans

Only three games into the Western Hockey League season – and the first at the Arena – the Spokane Chiefs took a big step forward. Blake Gal scored with 1 minute left in regulation and Mitch Holmberg scored 3:32 into overtime – the second goals of the game for both – to produce a dramatic 6-5 win over the Tri-City Americans before 8,686 fans Saturday night.

New-look Chiefs ready to start season

The Spokane Chiefs have some big holes to fill as their Western Hockey League season gets under way Saturday with a trip to rival Tri-City. Gone are a pair of forwards who combined for 82 goals and 182 points, a pair of defensemen with 76 assists and 92 points, plus the steadying influence from a couple of other veterans.

Chiefs’ preseason win offset by lackluster loss

It would seem the second weekend of preseason games was a rousing success for the Spokane Chiefs. Minus a few veterans, the Chiefs put a 7-2 whippin’ on Lethbridge before losing to Tri-City, 2-1.

John Blanchette: Hire stokes an already hot rivalry

A decade ago, the Kamloops Blazers fired coach Marc Habscheid, who months later wound up 200 kilometers down the road in Kelowna, where eventually he would win a Memorial Cup. In the space of 10 years, Lorne Molleken coached three different hockey clubs in Saskatchewan. Inevitably, the guy at Medicine Hat ends up with the same job in Lethbridge, and just as inevitably it is something less than cataclysmic. Some bloodlines you just don’t cross – an Auburn man, for instance, cannot be the football coach at Alabama.
