The Amerks failed to win the game but getting one out of two points against a team not in your conference is better than not getting anything at all. Rochester had a lot of chances to score goals throughout the second period but continued to hit the posts and give the Crunch too much room and they were able to succeed. The Amerks had a lead until halfway through the third period Peter Holland scored the tying goal and then Dan Sexton scored the eventual game winner in the shootout.
This game wasn’t lost because the Amerks were without Marcus Foligno, Corey Tropp and Travis Turnbull but because they were inconsistent the whole game. Those three players certainly would have helped but the game wasn’t lost due to their absence.
Igor Gongalsky and Kyle Kurtz had the only fight of the game at 5:06 of the first period. There weren’t many punches thrown but the two certainly gave it a shot against each other. You can see the video here:
