Johansson earns first AHL shutout in Amerks 4-0 win over Marlies

Just two days after earning a 4-0 win over the Toronto Marlies, the Rochester Americans (15-3-2-2) duplicated the effort in shutting out the defending Calder Cup champion Charlotte Checkers (9-11-3-0) by the same score Friday at The Blue Cross Arena.

The only difference was goaltender Jonas Johansson, who was perfect in stopping all 26 shots he faced to earn his first AHL shutout while also collecting his 100th pro win. The 4-0 win served as the first of back-to-back to meetings between the two clubs and also helped Rochester take over the top spot in the AHL’s North Division standings.

The victory also pushed Rochester’s point streak to 12 straight games (10-0-1-1), their longest since a 14-game run from Jan. 16 to Feb. 11 during the 2004-05 campaign. Additionally, the Amerks have now picked up points in 17 of the last 19 contests overall, going 13-2-2-2 over that span, while also earning 34 out of a possible 44 points through their first 22 contests of the season.
