Amerks score again, Matt Ellis with a tip from Adam and Sulzer. Up 3-1 in the third

Ruhwedel with a slick feed to Varone and send him in on a breakway and he scores on the backhand. Amerks up 4-1. Patrick Roy is at the game watching his son.

They were outplayed but capitalized on their chances. I'll take it.

I disagree. I think the Marlies had more shots, but they were kept to the outside far more than the Amerks were. The Amerks' Defense did a very nice job of helping out Liuwen, who played a fantastic game. His rebound control was excellent. He looked miles better than Hackett has this year.

Luke Adam continues to be a new player. It's refreshing to watch. He's going to get a shot with Buffalo this year at some point for sure.

Varone looked good. JGL had a great game on D - he looked like Karlsson, playing great positionally, winning battles, and making great outlet passes.

Team looked good tonight. Tomorrow will be an emotional game for sure. Utica comes back into the building, and I KNOW the Amerks are going to respond for what happened last weekend. Utica hasn't won a game yet, so they'll be desperate. I'm excited. It will be better than the Sabres game...

OH! And Patrick Roy was at the game tonight. So that was kind of cool. Glad he got to see Freddy Roy kick the **** out of a Toronto player. That kid is a monster.

Puck possession wasn't even close. Toronto dominated. The Amerks finished their chances, Toronto didn't. Simple as that. I'm not complaining.

I'll agree with that. But I still think the Amerks kept them to the outside and made sure the Marlies weren't around their crease much. Very nice effort tonight against their boogyman.

They did, but you're not going to get away with that result every night when you never have the puck. They have to start establishing a forecheck.

10/18: Amerks 4, Marlies 1 -- A pleasing victory for the Amerks over the Marlies:
Quote:
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.
Post-game: Cassidy, Ellis, Lieuwen, Varone.

It seems like Lieuwen has established his spot in the team. Hopefully they can send Makarov to an ECHL team to get him some playing time.

Looking around the ECHL, it looks like Wheeling may be the best opportunity for him. Despite being affiliated with both Pittsburgh and Montreal, they have two journeymen goalies and no prospects at that position.

You're right. Plus, our goalie outplayed their goalie. That is not going to happen every night.

Good win though!

Good to see Lieuwen get a win against the dreaded Marlies.

Hell of a shot by Luke Adam on that 2nd goal.

Roy had to get some sparring in before Archibald and Utica return tonight.
McGuire fought Devane in this one too.

I wonder if they give Luke a shot on wing? It wouldn't hurt to give him one more chance. It sounds like he realizes this is his last shot with the team, and right now is as good as time as any to make a push for the roster.

Roy threw like 46 uppercuts in that fight, and most connected. Brad Ross got obliterated.

Son of a legendary Hockey player vs the son of a painter. Easy decision.

McGuire vs Devane; McGuire left with UBI, not concussion:

Hackett just got pulled again. After the 2nd with his team winning. Took yet another penalty. Total headcase.

I don't think I can remember the last time I saw a goaltender take four minors in a season, let alone four starts. I wonder if Cassidy goes back to Lieuwen next game.

At least they managed to pull this one out in the end. Good to see JGL starting to wake up offensively.
