David Leggio makes 29 saves for Rochester in 5-1 win over league-worst Hamilton

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - David Leggio made 29 saves as the Rochester Americans cruised past the Hamilton Bulldogs 5-1 in American Hockey League play Saturday.

Evan Rankin, Phil Varone, Maxime Legault, Dan Catenacci and Luke Adam each scored for Rochester (42-29-4), which holds the sixth place playoff berth in the Western Conference with one game remaining.

Olivier Archambault had the lone goal for lowly Hamilton, which will finish the season Sunday as the AHL's worst team at 29-40-6.

Archambault's goal cut Rochester's lead to 2-1 at 10:13 in the second, but a power-play goal by Varone two minutes later restored the Americans' insurance.

Dustin Tokarski finished with 22 saves on 27 shots in net for the Bulldogs.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
