Last night on the tails of a two goal effort by Cody McCormick and a shutout by David Leggio – the Amerks jumped from ninth place to seventh place, and are positioned to take over the lead in their division.
The odds are not in Rochester’s favor for tonights matchup. So far in six matchups – Binghamton shows a 5-0-1 record over the Rochester Americans. Rochester’s trips into Binghamton have come for naught – as the Baby Sens are undefeated at home against the Amerks.
Two points today will set the Rochester Americans up well for success – and will vault them to fifth place. The fourth place Charlotte Checkers have a ten point lead on the Amerks – but can surpass them by jumping over the Toronto Marlies in the divisional race.
Game time is scheduled for 7:05. If you missed last nights game against the Abbotsford Heat – here is the recap courtesy of the internet home of the Rochester Americans.
Rochester has 21 games left on the schedule this season, including tonights tilt with the Baby Sens. A solid run the rest of the way could set the Rochester Americans up from sneaking into the playoffs to raising a divisional banner.
