It seems weird to have back to back home games on a Friday and Saturday night but it’s happening this weekend, following the Amerks 3-1 win over the Senators on Friday night they’re back on the ice in a few hours against the Grand Rapids Griffins. Based on Ticketmaster numbers it looks like a crowd of around 4,000 should be expected. If you don’t have tickets yet make sure to wear Amerks or Sabres gear to the box office to get discounts.
The Amerks lit up the scoreboard with a 7-2 win the last time these two teams played in the middle of October. The Griffins scored eight goals last night against the Hamilton Bulldogs so they’ll be ready to shoot some pucks.
Whether or not it’ll be David Leggio or Drew MacIntyre in net for the Amerks is an unknown at this time, we’ll likely find out when the team skates out for warmups. The rotation has Leggio in net but MacIntyre had a great game last night, maybe it’s the weekend the rotation ends.
