Amerks extend win streak to six games

The Rochester Americans (27-13-2-4) continued their winning ways Wednesday at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, where the Amerks doubled up the Cleveland Monsters (21-22-2-2) in goals and nearly did the same in shots to extend their win streak to a season-long six straight games. The 4-2 victory was also Rochester’s fourth straight on the road and moves the Amerks to within four points of the first place in the AHL’s North Division standings.

Eric Cornel had his hand in three of the four goals for the Amerks, scoring once and adding two assists, including one on the game-winner. The fourth-year forward has now tied his career-high in goals from each of the last two seasons, while hitting the mark this season in 31 fewer games. Pascal Aquin (2+0) logged his first multi-goal game of the season for Rochester, including the game-winner, in his first game back since being recalled from Cincinnati earlier today. Veteran defenseman Nathan Paetsch (1+0) scored his first goal of the season to get the Amerks on the board in the first stanza and Sean Malone (0+2) picked up his second straight multi-point effort with a pair of assists. Andrew Hammond (13-9-2) won his third straight contest, making 23 saves on the 25 shots he faced in net.
