TWO YEARS SINCE THE FROZEN FRONTIER

The recent Rochester weather makes it hard to believe that it was exactly two years ago (Dec. 13, 2013) when the Rochester Americans played their first-ever outdoor game in the historic Frozen Frontier at Frontier Field. Snowy conditions during the morning skate gave way to clear skies and frigid 18-degree temperatures that evening when the Amerks faced-off with the Lake Erie Monsters.

A back-and-forth game featured multiple lead changes, a buzzer-beating goal by Lake Erie, and a comeback in the shootout that gave Rochester a dramatic victory. Matt Ellis played the role of hero, scoring the game's first goal and then netting the shootout winner. His efforts famously resulted in a recall to the Buffalo Sabres immediately after the game.
