The Rochester Americans (2-1-0-0) erupted for four first-period goals and saw five different Amerks forwards record multi-point efforts, including three-point outings from Michael Mersch (1+2) and Mark Jankowski (0+3), as the team began its four-game Canadian road swing with a convincing 7-3 win over the Toronto Marlies Saturday afternoon at Coca-Cola Coliseum. The win was the Amerks second in as many games and the first time Rochester has faced a Canadian team since the 2019-20 season.

The victory, Rochester’s first in Canada since March 24, 2019, improves the club to a 10-3-1-0 record in the last 14 meetings against the Marlies, which includes a near-perfect 5-1-0-0 mark in 2018-19.

The rookie forward has opened the season with at least one goal in each of his first three games while already doubling his total from last season. After combining for five points (3+2) in two games, he closes out the weekend leading all AHL rookies in goals (4) and points (6).

A pair of third-period goals, including Sean Malone’s empty-net tally, proved to be the difference as the Rochester Americans (9-6-0-0) defeated the first-place Utica Comets (13-1-0-0) Wednesday night at the Adirondack Bank Center.

The matchup was the fourth of the season between the two clubs and third in a week.

The Rochester Americans (10-6-0-0) stormed out to a 4-0 lead and never looked back on their way to a 7-3 drubbing of the Hershey Bears (8-6-2-1) Friday night in a battle of the American Hockey League’s cornerstone franchises at The Blue Cross Arena.

The Amerks erupted for a season-high four power-play goals and six different players posted multi-point performances. The matchup was the 461st all-time meeting between the AHL’s two oldest teams and first in Rochester since Oct. 23, 2019. With the win, Rochester, which has won 10 of its last 15 games overall, has earned at least one point in six of the last 11 games with the Bears dating back to the 2016-17 campaign, going 5-5-1-0 over that span.

Jack Quinn and Mark Jankowski each tallied a goal and two assists while Peyton Krebs finished with three assists. Michael Mersch (2+0), Ethan Prow (0+2) and JJ Peterka (0+2) all recorded a multi-point game. Mason Jobst, Sean Malone and Ryan MacInnis completed the scoring with one goal apiece. Oskari Laakonen and Josh Teves both earned an assist.

Goaltender Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen (6-6-0) made his eighth appearance of the last nine games and 12th overall. The Finnish netminder faced 40 shots, which included 27 over the final 40 minutes of play and picked up his sixth victory of the season.

Mason Jobst, Oskari Laaksonen, Ryan MacInnis, Peyton Krebs and Brandon Biro all chipped in an assist in the victory.
