A pleasing victory for the Amerks over the Marlies
If a coach could draw up how he'd like a game to go, Friday's 4-1 victory by the Rochester Americans over the Toronto Marlies would be pretty close to that ideal script.
Score early (really early), add to the lead, withstand mid-game pressure, fend off one of the AHL's elite power plays, and then pull away in the third period. Along the way, have your young goaltender show poise and confidence -- and make a lot of saves.
The Amerks did just that. Dan Catenacci scored nine seconds into the game and Luke Adam continued to find the net by scoring his fourth goal midway through the period for a 2-0 lead.
The Marlies had plenty of pressure with their power play but couldn't score (0 for 6). And while a good portion of the game was played in the Amerks zone, coach Chadd Cassidy was quite content with the overall performance.
