The Rochester Americans are heading to the Eastern Conference finals for the first time since 2004 after completing a sweep of the Toronto Marlies with an 8-4 victory on Wednesday night in front of a sold-out crowd at the Blue Cross Arena.
Isak Rosen netted two goals, Jiri Kulich scored for the sixth consecutive game, and Lukas Rousek chipped in with a goal and two assists for Rochester. Malcolm Subban made 34 saves, including 16 in the third period.
The Amerks will take on the Hershey Bears in a best-of-seven series, which begins Tuesday, May 23.
