Team From Toronto vs. Amerks, A Season Series Recap/Playoff Preview


With a 5-1 victory over the 30th place Hamilton Bulldogs on Saturday, the Rochester Americans clinched a playoff spot for the 44th time in franchise history. All that remained to be determined was who they would play in the best-of-five first round series. If everything went well the Amerks would finish in 6th place in the Western Conference and meet the Grand Rapids Griffins. For this to happen, the Iowa Wild Houston Aeros needed to defeat the Oklahoma City Barons in regulation on Sunday and the Amerks had to win against Hamilton. The Amerks were able to continue their domination of Hamilton and won their game by a score of 4-1. Unfortunately for the Amerks, however, the Barons were able to defeat the Aeros by a score of 3-0.
