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

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
