Rochester Americans by the numbers - Blog

Posted by Bob Caico on December 2, 2014 - 4:51pm

The AHL Amerks is the breeding ground for future Buffalo Sabres players and now more than ever is it important for them to hone the skills of their young players. Rochester (9-11-1) is currently third in the North Division of the Western Conference, 11 points out of first place. The idea was to have the young Sabre prospects gain some available experience in the AHL and hopefully grow in a playoff run. They need to improve in some areas to get in playoff position.

Rochester Americans play home game in Buffalo - Blog

Posted by Bob Caico on October 30, 2014 - 7:42am

With the Sabres playing poor hockey, the Rochester Americans were a welcome diversion at First Niagara Center Wednesday night. The Amerks in fact had as many shots on goal in the first period (10) as the Sabres had in the whole game the night before in Toronto but there was no scoring after the first 20 minutes of play.
Goaltender Andrey Makarov stopped the first 17 shots on goal from the Hamilton Bulldogs before the visitors scored on their next two shots on odd man rushes to take a 2-0 lead. Makarov made some great stops in net and looks to be the goalie of the future for the Sabres. The Amerks got one back on a nifty pass from Joel Armia to Mikail Grigorenko who scored on a nice shot from the slot. Armia then scored right off an offensive zone faceoff won by Grigorenko to tie the game. Luke Adam fired a wicked wrist shot less than a minute later that gave the home team the lead giving the Amerks three goals in three minutes and thirty two seconds. Rochester lead after the second period 3-2 that also featured a fight between Nick Petrecki and Joe Finley making for an exciting 20 minutes of play.
There was no scoring in the third but plenty of entertaining moments. Grigorenko and Armia playing on the same line, Tim Schaller the big scoring center throwing his weight around, Mike Pysyk and Chad Ruhwedel puck moving scoring threats from the point all lead to signs of hope in the Sabres future.

JOHN AXFORD: From Ontario to Canisius to the Major Leagues - Blog

Posted by Ivan on October 8, 2014 - 5:31pm

The journey for John Axford to the Major Leagues started in Ontario, Canada, continued through Notre Dame, and came back to WNY when he enrolled at Canisius College in Buffalo. The right-handed relief pitcher made it to the majors in 2009, and has been there ever since. He debuted with Milwaukee, and eventually supplanted soon-to-be Hall of Famer Trevor Hoffman as their closer. John's 46 saves led the NL in 2011; that and his 1.95 ERA earned him the NL Rolaids Relief Award. His home address has changed a few times in the last two years. The Brewers traded Axford to St.
