Amerks Drop Game 2 To Rocket; Face Elimination On Wednesday
LAVAL (WHEC) – Just as they did in game 1 of the North Division Finals 24 hours ago, the Amerks whiffed on four power play chances in Monday evening’s 2nd game against the Rocket. Laval was kept off the board on three man advantage opportunities but it didn’t matter. The three goals they did end up scoring (at even strength) would be more than enough to go up, 2-0 over Rochester in this best of five. 3-1 was the final across the boarder. Arttu Ruotsalainen netted his ninith playoff goal for Rochester with minutes left.
The series shifts back to Blue Cross Arena on Wednesday for game 3, which Rochester must win to stay alive in the series. If they do, game 4 would be set for Friday evening in town.
