Jimmy Bonneau has been a consistent enforcer for the Amerks this season and with the team already trailing 4-0 he dropped the gloves to square off with Grant McNeil. A decent fight even after the jersey went over his head he continued to connect with punches. Bonneau has not only been a consistent enforcer but also a consistent player that Benoit Groulx can rely on for a regular shift without being a liability on the ice.
Unfortunately Steve MacIntyre appeared to back down from two different requests to fight during the game, at least that’s how a couple of fans viewed things from the game. I don’t have any names of Bears players that challenged him, but I also have no reason to doubt those who told me this. The only reason I mention that is because it’s becoming a common occurrence for MacIntyre. He has gone from an anticipated heavyweight bringing some action to a complete snooze.
The Amerks welcome the Syracuse Crunch back to Rochester on Tuesday night. The Amerks are 6-0 against the Crunch this season and it’s a losing streak I know the Crunch would like to end, especially in Rochester. With the depleted roster and Graham Mink expected to sit the game out maybe we’ll see some early fireworks.
