Game Preview: Amerks at Penguins, 10/26/2012


Normally I reserve game previews for games I’m attending, but seeing that the next Amerks home game isn’t until next week, I thought I would drop some knowledge on you. Tonight marks the first of two meetings between the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins (Penguins) and the Rochester Americans. Last season the Amerks were 0-1-0-1 against the Penguins and 0-0-0-1 on the road. Will the Amerks be able to win their fourth game in a row? Well, I certainly hope they will. Read More…

From Where I Sat: Bulldogs at Amerks FNC Edition, 10/23/2012


Last night marked the first of twelve meetings between the Hamilton Bulldogs (Canadiens) and the Rochester Americans. Today’s game recap is brought to you by Section 116, Row 11, Seat 18 in the First Niagara Center. The Amerks, led by David Leggio, certainly made an impression on most of the 10,936 people who attended the game last night. If you are unaware, the final score was 3-1 Amerks. After the jump you’ll find The GoodThe Bad, and The Ugly.

Game Preview: Bulldogs at Amerks, 10/23/2012


Tonight marks the first meeting of the season between the Hamilton Bulldogs (Canadiens) and the Rochester Americans. During the 2011-12 season the Amerks were 3-5-1-1 overall against the Bulldogs and 2-2-0-1 against them at home. If you weren’t already aware, tonight’s game will be held at First Niagara Center. I’m sure that you can still get tickets, and I encourage you to do so. Every  seat filled by an Amerks or Sabres fan is one less seat that is available to Bulldogs and Canadiens fans! Read More…

From Where I Sat: Griffins at Amerks, 10/19/2012


Last night marked the first of two meetings between the Grand Rapids Griffins and the Rochester Americans. Following a record of 3-2-1-0 during the 2011-12 season, one would expect this to be a closely contested game. After falling behind 2-0 the Amerks were able to score 4 unanswered goals en route to a 4-3 regulation win. After the jump you’ll find The GoodThe Bad, and The Ugly. Read More…

Game Preview: Griffins at Amerks, 10/19/2012


Time for another Amerks game preview! Tonight’s game will feature the Grand Rapids Griffins (Red Wings) versus the Rochester Americans. Tonight we find out what, exactly, the Amerks are made of as they take on a team that is just below them in the Western Conference. Will they be able to find their cajones and squash the pestilence that is the Griffins, or will they have the same performance as Tuesday against the B-Sens? Questions, my friends, will become answers. After the jump you’ll find my preview of what may or may not be a fantastic game. Hopefully the former. Read More…

From Where I Sat: B-Sens at Amerks, 10/16/2012


Last night marked the first meeting of the season between the Binghamton Senators and the Rochester Americans. Given the Amerks’ record against the B-Sens last season (6-1-1) one would come into the game expecting a similar result. Unfortunately for Amerks fans, what they witnessed was anything but domination of a team that finished the 2011-12 season dead last in the AHL. The final score was 3-1 B-Sens. After the jump you’ll find The GoodThe Bad, and The Ugly.

Game Preview: B-Sens at Amerks, 10/16/2012


We here at The Ruff Writers have seriously slacked off on our blogging duties and for that we apologize (well, at least I do). So I thought it would be interesting to do a rare game preview for tonight’s Amerks’ game against the Binghamton Senators. After the jump you’ll find some very meaningful numbers for comparison.
