Amerks host Providence tonight
The Rochester Americans have been working overtime early on this season.
From our weekly Amerks Update…
The Amerks are one of only two AHL teams (Hartford) this year to appear in at least five games that have been decided in overtime and are one of just two teams (Colorado) to have won two games in overtime as well as a shootout.
Rochester has earned 12 out of a possible 18 points through its first nine games of the season. All but two have been one-goal games, including three wins beyond regulation.
