Amerks down Monsters in OT, 6-5

The Rochester Americans defeated the Cleveland Monsters, 6-5, in overtime on Saturday night at the Blue Cross Arena.

Rochester trailed 4-1 midway through the second period and then 5-4 early in the third, but still found a way to pick up their second win over Cleveland in as many nights.

Mark Jankowski netted the game-winner in overtime while Jack Quinn, Nick Boka, Josh Teves, Arttu Ruotsalainen and Michael Mersch also scored.

Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen turned aside 34-of-39 shots to earn the victory.

Tristan Mullins, Roman Achan, Jake Gaudet, Tyler Angle and Zach Jordan tallied for the Monsters.

Jean-Francois Berube stopped 18-of-24 shots in the loss.

The Amerks went 1-for-4 on the power play and a perfect 1-for-1 on the penalty kill.

Rochester will be back in action next Friday when they host the Toronto Marlies at 7:05 p.m.
