AMERICANS LOOKING TO EXTEND SERIES AGAIN, IN GAME 6
May 9th, 2017 by Tommy Daniels
Allen, Texas – The Allen Americans, ECHL affiliate of the San Jose Sharks, look to extend the Mountain Division Finals to a Game 7 if they can win a third straight in the series. Puck drop tonight in Allen is at 7:05 PM.
The Americans won two of three games in Colorado, winning back to back in Games 4 & 5 and now return to Allen for Games 6 & 7 (if necessary) on Tuesday and Wednesday night. “We earned the right to be here,” said Americans for ward Dyson Stevenson. “We went to Colorado and took two of three and now we’re back home ready for Game 6. We’ll be ready.”
The Americans have dropped three straight in their building, going back to the Utah series. Allen is 5-1 on the road during the playoffs.
Chad Costello is on a three-game scoring streak, with goals in all three games in Colorado. He leads the team in points with 12, and is leading the league in power play assists with 5. Costello picked up his 100th career playoff point over the weekend and now has 102 after the goal and assist in Game 5.
Riley Gill has allowed just one goal in his last two starts, getting the 35-save shutout on Sunday afternoon in Colorado. He now has a .923 save percentage and a 2.31 goals-against average.
‘Riley (Gill) has been spectacular between the pipes,” said Americans Defenseman Joel Chouinard. “He’s showing them and everyone else why he won the Goalie of the Year Award.”
Tyler Barnes has been heating up with goals in consecutive games, and David Makowski is now second overall on the team with nine points and tied for second overall in D-man points, right behind Colorado’s Matt Register (11).
