Tri-City Americans 3 @ Seattle Thunderbirds 2 (OT)
G Riku Helenius , SEA: OTL, 34 saves on 37 shots, *First Star*
Helenius was â€œstellarâ€ for Seattle, only allowing one even-strength goal. The overtime winner was a shot through a screen that apparently bounced in off a shin, Helenius told the Seattle Times. It was scored on the power play.
Prince George Cougars 3 @ Chilliwack Bruins 6
C/W Dana Tyrell , PG: Did not play
Tyrell is recovering from a minor knee injury and may be ready for this weekend's games.
