News and Notes
On the strength of back-to-back wins over the first-place Belleville Senators this past weekend, Rochester moved to within six points of the Senators for the top spot in the AHL's North Division standings with a game in hand.
The Amerks, who have earned 15 out of a possible 22 points in their last 11 games, also hold a two-point lead over the Comets for second place in the Division, but the Comets do have a game in hand on Rochester coming into this week.
With a 16-6-3-5 home record, Rochester has the third-fewest regulation losses in the AHL and have the sixth-most points on home ice (40). Only the Hartford Wolf Pack and Milwaukee Admirals have fewer regulation losses (5) at home this season.
