Nelson scores twice as Amerks double up Devils

With a career-high three-point outing (2+1) by defenseman Casey Nelson and two third-period goals, the Rochester Americans (6-3-1-1) opened the month of November with a 4-2 victory over the Binghamton Devils (3-6-2-0) at The Blue Cross Arena.

By doubling up the Devils, the Amerks earned their seventh win in the previous eight meetings between the North Division rivals while also claiming a point in 17 of the last 21 contests dating back to the start of the 2017-18 slate. The Amerks hold a 13-4-3-1 record during that same span. Additionally, Rochester has picked up points in six of its last eight games overall to start the 2019-20 season.

As Nelson netted his first and second goals of the campaign to go with an assist, fellow defensive partner Will Borgen tallied a pair of helpers to help the Amerks earn 14 out of a possible 22 points through their first 11 games of the season. Remi Elie, who missed the last four games due to an injury, also tallied a two-point night (1+1) while Jean-Sebastien Dea netted his team-leading fifth goal of campaign. Goaltender Andrew Hammond snapped his three-game winless streak as he made 27 saves to improve to 4-1-1.
