ROCHESTER, N.Y. - The Rochester Americans had a lot of newcomers on the score sheet Wednesday in their 6-3 victory over the Hamilton Bulldogs in American Hockey League action.

Rasmus Ristolainen scored his first two goals of the season, Johan Larsson got his first, Kevin Porter scored his second and third goals of the campaign and Jamie Tardiff got his second.

Porter opened the scoring in the first period, and made it 4-2 Rochester (8-7-4) with a power-play goal in the third.

Jamie Tardiff's short-handed goal at 2:55 into the second period gave the Americans a 2-0 lead.

Ristolainen got his first AHL goal on the power play at 15:35 of the second period to give the home team a 3-1 lead, and he scored shorthanded into an empty net in the final minute.

Christian Thomas had a goal and helped set up Morgan Ellis and Martin St. Pierre to account for the Hamilton (9-8-3) scoring.

For Thomas and Ellis, it was their second goals of the season. St. Pierre's was his fourth.

Nathan Lieuwen made 24 saves for Rochester, while Dustin Tokarski turned back 23 shots for the Bulldogs.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
