David Leggio makes 29 saves as Rochester beats Hamilton 3-2 in shootout

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - David Leggio made 29 saves as the Rochester Americans squandered a two-goal lead but held on to beat the Hamilton Bulldogs 3-2 in American Hockey League play Friday.

Phil Varone, Brian Flynn and Marcus Foligno each scored in the shootout for the Americans (6-2-1), while Zemgus Girgensons and Kevin Porter scored in regulation.

Rochester held a 2-0 lead after Girgensons scored in the first period and Porter added a power-play goal 2:02 into the third.

But Hamilton (3-2-2) forced extra time after goals by Brendan Gallagher and Darryl Boyce, who was the only Bulldog to beat Leggio in the shootout.

Hamilton goaltender Robert Mayer made 33 saves for the loss.

Quote of the Day

For us it's a little bit different. I've never been in front of this much media. This is more than we've ever had to deal with in Tampa. I guess we're on a little bit bigger stage now. It's nice, you have to enjoy it. This doesn't happen too often.
