How the Rochester Americans changed their culture

by Jourdon LaBarber @jourdonlabarber / Sabres.com

Chris Taylor was displeased with the effort from his team, and he wanted his players to know it. The Rochester Americans had just lost in a shootout to the Utica Comets, a divisional rival whom they had already faced seven times with varying degrees of success. 

The Amerks admittedly were not at their best on this afternoon, and the fact that they salvaged a point at all could be seen as a testament to their development as a team. Furthermore, they remained a close second to Toronto in the North Division standings. 

Taylor was irked, however, by two factors. One was that Utica's lineup featured six players on professional tryouts. Rochester's had none. It was a contest, Taylor told reporters after the game, his team should have won based on the skill of its roster.
