The shutout performance by Tyler Plante last night helped the Amerks clinch a playoff spot for the first time since 2007 and it also helped earn him recognition as AHL goalie of the month for March.
Plante finished the month with a 5-1-1 record in 7 starts and 5-3-1 in 9 decisions overall. A 1.88 goals against average and .942 save percentage also complinated his win/loss record.
If there was ever a time to be on top of your game it’s right now heading into the end of the season and the playoffs. Plante had missed time earlier in the season with a knee injury after a solid start.
The Amerks have two tough games this weekend against Hershey at home on Friday and on the road against Hamilton on Saturday.
