David Leggio makes 34 saves as Americans shut out Bulldogs 2-0

HAMILTON - David Leggio stopped 34 shots as the Rochester Americans shut out the Hamilton Bulldogs 2-0 in American Hockey League action Monday.

Evan Rankin and Mark Mancari scored for Rochester (16-12-3), which sent Hamilton to its second straight shutout defeat.

Cedrick Desjardins stopped 24 shots for Hamilton (11-17-3)

The Americans opened the scoring at 6:33 of the first period on a power-play goal by Rankin. Brian Flynn brought the puck in on the left side and feathered a pass to Rankin in the slot who tapped the puck by Desjardins.

Rochester made it 2-0 at 11:15 of the second period as Mancari skated down the boards on the right side and took a shot from a sharp angle which squeaked over the shoulder of Desjardins and into the back of the net.

Quote of the Day

When somebody goes out and is there to score goals, but is also there to make some big hits, fight, do all of those things, and he has a great mustache, it was great to see him get that hit and get everybody going.
