ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — If they're not sick of facing each other yet, it's bound to happen pretty soon.

The Rochester Americans will face the Utica Comets more than a dozen times this season due to limited travel and a schedule that only includes four teams in total.

So far this season, Utica is the only team to have beaten the Amerks.

"To be a good hockey team, you need to find ways to win when you're not at your best, because you're never going to be at your best throughout the whole season, you're not going to dominate your opponent every night and I thought that wasn't our best," Seth Appert said. "I like that we found a way, I thought Ukko-Pekka was huge in the first period."

The Amerks won 4-3, that's three straight wins for Rochester.
