The Rochester Americans (13-10-2-1) held the Syracuse Crunch (15-9-2-2) to just five shots in the final period before Brandon Biro capped the 3-2 win in overtime on Saturday at Upstate Medical University Arena.

With the overtime victory, the Amerks have won two of the first three games against the Crunch this season, which included a shootout win back on Nov. 4. Dating back to the 2022-23 regular season versus Syracuse, six of the last eight meetings between the two clubs have been decided beyond regulation.

Along with the overtime-winning marker, Biro also logged an assist on Lukas Rousek’s second-period goal to finish with a pair points, his eighth multi-point outing of the season. Aleksandr Kisakov scored his fourth goal of the season to kick-off the scoring for Rochester, which snapped its 0-3-0-0 winless skid.

The Rochester Americans (13-11-2-1) were unable to complete a two-game sweep over the Syracuse Crunch (16-9-2-2), dropping a 3-1 contest in a rematch with their intrastate rival Wednesday at The Blue Cross Arena.

The Amerks and Crunch have split the first four games of the season-series with the road team emerging victorious on all four occasions. Dating back to the 2022-23 regular season versus Syracuse, six of the last nine meetings between the two clubs have been decided beyond regulation.

Forward Lukas Rousek scored for the second time in as many games and pushed his point streak to four games as he has five points (3+2) dating back to Dec. 20. The Czech native has a goal in three of his last four outings over that same span for the Amerks, who remain winless on home ice in December.

Goaltender Dustin Tokarski (5-6-1) made his 12th appearance of the campaign and stopped 12 of 15 shots he faced.

Shawn Element (2+0) recorded the first two-goal outing of his professional career while Gage Goncalves pushed his point streak to five games as he added his sixth goal of the season to complete the scoring.

Forwards Linus Weissbach (1+1) and Tyson Jost (1+1) both recorded multi-point nights, but the Rochester Americans (13-12-2-1) were unable to get the best of the Hershey Bears (26-6-0-0) in dropping a 4-2 decision to the defending Calder Cup champions in front of a season-high 9,092 fans Friday at The Blue Cross Arena.

Despite the loss, the Amerks have collected at least one point in six of their last 14 games against Hershey overall, going 5-8-1-0 over that span dating back to the start of the 2016-17 campaign. Rochester entered the matchup, the first between the AHL’s two oldest teams since Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals this past spring, carrying a three-game home win streak against the Bears.

After being assigned to the club earlier in the day from the Buffalo Sabres (NHL), Jost made his Amerks debut. The former first-round selection (10th overall) in the 2016 NHL Draft scored his first goal in the AHL since Feb. 9, 2019, while also logging his first multi-point outing since Jan. 26, 2019.

Weissbach also factored in on both Rochester goals (1+1), which included his fourth of the season to open the scoring for the Amerks, who finished the month of December winless on home ice (0-5-0-0). Lukas Rousek and Viktor Neuchev both tallied an assist in the defeat, with Rousek extending his point streak to five games.

With the victory, the Amerks have collected points in nine of their last 10 road games against Utica dating back to Dec. 28, 2022, going 8-1-1-0 over that span. Rochester also improved to 3-1 in the skills competition this season and have appeared in a league-high 12 games decided beyond regulation.

Mersch logged his fourth two-point effort of the season and second of the month to help lead the Amerks to the win, while Tyson Jost scored his second goal in as many games since joining Rochester on Friday. Lukas Rousek pushed his point streak to six games, which matches a personal-best, as he added an assist.

After being swept in the two-game season-series in 2017-18 against Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, Rochester has gone a near-perfect 9-1-0-1 in the 11 meetings since, including winning each of the last four meetings on home ice.

The trio of Michael Mersch (2+1), Mason Jobst (0+3), and Linus Weissbach (1+1) combined for three goals and five assists as each turned in a multi-point performance. Tyson Kozak, who tallied a career-high three-point outing on Wednesday, and Jiri Kulich both scored in the second and third periods, respectively. Defensemen Joseph Cecconi and Jeremy Davies each notched an assist in the win.

Levi (5-2-2), who made his ninth appearance of the campaign and fifth straight, turned aside 41 of the 44 shots he faced, both of which were career-highs in the AHL. The rookie netminder has made 30 or more saves in six of his nine games with the Amerks this season, which includes each of his last three contests.

Despite opening the scoring for the sixth straight game, the Rochester Americans (23-17-5-1) were unable to keep pace with the intrastate rival Utica Comets (20-20-4-3), who came away with a 7-3 win Sunday at The Blue Cross Arena.

Despite the loss, the Amerks, who entered the contest with at least one point in nine of their last 12 games dating back to Jan. 17, saw their five-game point streak come to an end. Rochester shows a 5-3-1-0 record through the first nine games of the season-series with Utica this season.

Forwards Tyson Jost and Brett Murray scored in the first and second periods, respectively, for the Amerks while defenseman Jeremy Davies also found the back of the net. Zach Metsa, Isak Rosen, Ethan Prow, and Lukas Rousek all added an assist to complete the scoring.

b>Devin Cooley (6-6-2) and Dustin Tokarski (7-7-2) split the goaltending duties with Cooley drawing the starting nod. Cooley, who appeared in his first contest since Jan. 26, finished with 23 saves, while Tokarski stopped three of four shots he faced in 13 minutes of relief.

Santeri Hatakka (1+1), Max Willman (1+1), Kyle Criscuolo (1+1), Graeme Clarke (1+1), Justin Dowling (0+2), Nolan Stevens (0+2) and Xavier Parent (0+2) all had multi-point efforts for Utica. Robbie Russo, Erik Middendorf, and Daniil Misyul each tallied a goal to complete the scoring.

Jeremy Davies scored in the final seconds of overtime and rookie goaltender Devon Levi turned in a brilliant 52-save performance as the Rochester Americans (24-17-5-1) prevailed with a thrilling 2-1 win over the Toronto Marlies (21-16-7-2) Monday afternoon at Scotiabank Arena.

With the overtime victory, the Amerks have recorded at least one point in 10 of their last 13 games dating back to Jan. 17 while also taking the first two meetings with the Marlies this season in the extra frame.

Mason Jobst scored his 14th goal of the season, which matches a career-high, in the second period before Davies sealed the win with his eighth. Lukas Rousek and Brandon Biro each added an assist to conclude the scoring.

After finishing with a then career-high 41-save effort on Feb. 16, Levi stole the show again as he had 52 on Monday afternoon in his 10th appearance of the campaign. The rookie netminder, who has back-to-back 40-save performances, has made 30 or more saves in seven of his 10 games with the Amerks this season.

Dylan Gambrell notched his ninth goal of the season for the Marlies, who are winless in their last four games. Kieffer Bellows and Matt Anderson, who made his AHL debut, both assisted on the goal.

Goaltender Dennis Hildeby (12-7-5) made his 25th appearance in the crease for Toronto.

Forward Mason Jobst scored his career-best 15th goal of the season but the Rochester Americans (24-18-5-1) dropped a 4-1 score to the Belleville Senators (24-20-2-3) in the first of back-to-back meetings between the two teams Wednesday at The Blue Cross Arena.

Despite the defeat, the Amerks have recorded at least one point in 10 of their last 14 games dating back to Jan. 17. Rochester shows a 1-2-0-0 record through the first three games of the season-series ahead of Friday’s rematch against the Senators.

While Jobst scored in the second period for the second consecutive contest and added his ninth point (5+4) of February, Lukas Rousek and Linus Weissbach tallied an assist. Rousek has recorded a point in 21 of the last 25 games for Rochester, registering six goals and 19 assists dating back to Dec. 20, while Weissbach has picked up 11 (7+4) of his last 12 points on home ice.

In his 11th appearance of the campaign, goaltender Devon Levi (6-3-2), who entered the contest coming off back-to-back 40-save performances, stopped 32 of the 36 shots he faced. The rookie netminder has made 30 or more saves in seven of his 11 games with the Amerks this season.

Rourke Chartier opened the scoring in the first period while Angus Crookshank, Josh Currie and Garrett Pilon capped the win as they found the back of the net in the final 10 minutes of regulation.
