The last time these two clubs met, it was last season, and the 2-1 Rochester Americans victory ended the season for the Lake Erie Monsters.
The game winning goal last year was scored by the relegated Luke Adam – who was serving time in Rochester after having been demoted from the Blue and Gold. Adam has goals in his last two games – putting him on a point streak that he hopes to continue as he pushes forward with his campaign to get back into the regular rotation at center for the Rochester Americans, and hopefully soon the Buffalo Sabres.
Rochester is coming off an emotional shootout win over the league leading Abbotsford Heat – compliments of the red hot T.J. Brennan. Lake Erie is returning home to Cleveland off a four game road trip that saw them go 1-3-0. The Monsters are just two points ahead of Rochester in the standings.
Game time tonight is 7 PM and is again radio only. The next televised game for the Rochester Americans is December 21st.
