Americans Attempt 2nd Sweep in the 2018 Playoffs Tonight
It had been years since the Americans had just one sweep in the post season, but tonight they will play to win their second sweep of the 2018 WHL Playoffs!
The Americans lead Victoria 3-0 in the series with the 6-5 win last night in the Toyota Center in Kennewick. It was a 5-0 lead, but then Victoria fought back with 4 goals to cut it to 5-4. The Am's added an empty net tally before Victoria scored with literally 1 second left to make it 6-5, with an meaningless goal.
Americans star Morgan Geekie scored 3 goals and 1 assist. Geekie leads the WHL in goals for the playoffs with 14.
The Americans can finish their second sweep of the season if they win tonight in front of their home crowd.
Game time is 7:05 pm at the Toyota Center in Kennewick.
