During training camp last year – the spotlight was on young Luke Adam – as he was supposed to be the next best thing for the Blue and Gold Buffalo Sabres. This year Adam is watching the Buffalo Sabres take form without him.
Kept in the AHL for the start of training camp – Adam will most likely be called up in the event of an injury – but for now will be kept in Rochester to mature and grow more as a hockey player.
Last night – the Rochester Americans could have used more of the NHL talent that has kept them in the rat race so far this year.
Corey Cowick, with two goals and an assist, and Jean-Garbiel Pageau, with three assists, led the charge for the Binghamton Senators – as they charged against Rochester and won 5-1.
David Leggio faced 33 shots, and Adam scored to extend his point streak to four games. With Adams goal, the end of the first period made the game seem like it was within reach. The end of the second period had the B-Sens up 5-1, and the teams skated to a scoreless tie in the third period.
Rochester found themselves down from the beginning, and probably realized it was going to be a bad night when Corey Cowick opened the scoring on the evening with a short handed goal.
Luke Adam was able to tie it in the first on the powerplay – but the rest of the game went south. Cowicks second goal of the first period ended up being the game winner.
Rochester opens up a four game homestand starting tomorrow night against the Syracuse Crunch at 7:05. If you want to get your Sunday tailgaiting started early – you can begin while watching the Rochester Americans on the Time Warner Cable Sports Channel. This will be the first game televised since the parent club took all NHL ready talent, and could give fans the ability to see some new faces and hear some new names.
