Schofield's second-period winner leads Americans to 6-3 win over Bulldogs

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Rick Schofield scored the winning goal and added an assist as the Rochester Americans beat the Hamilton Bulldogs 6-3 in American Hockey League action Monday afternoon.

Schofield's winner came at 1:47 of the second period, just 1:23 after Joey Tenute's goal erased a 3-0 Rochester lead.

Kevin Porter also had a goal and an assist for Rochester (21-15-3), while Kevin Sundher, Frederick Roy, Evan Rankin and Brian Flynn had the other goals. Mark Mancari added two assists.

Louis Leblanc and Zack Stortini also scored for the Bulldogs (13-21-6).

Rochester surged to a 2-0 lead before the game was a minute old. Sundher scored 13 seconds in, while Porter made it 2-0 at the 53-second mark of the first.

Roy put Rochester up 3-0 at 5:45 of the period before Leblanc got Hamilton on the board with a power-play goal at 8:15.

Stortini made it 3-2 at 16:25 of the first, then Tenute tied the game 24 seconds into the second period.

Hamilton's momentum was almost immediately killed by Schofield's goal, then Rankin scored at 8:42 of the second period and Flynn put the game away with a power-play goal in the third.

David Leggio made 21 saves for Rochester.

Robert Mayer stopped 28 shots for Hamilton.

Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
