Written By Kris Baker on Monday, April 7, 2008 | 4/07/2008
The forgettable season for the Rochester Americans endured another head-shaking blemish yesterday with a 10-3 loss to Syracuse. Dylan Hunter notched his 20th goal in defeat. The Rundown: Hunter - goal, -1 Mancari - assist, -1 Funk - assist, -3 Kaleta - fight with Derek Dorsett MacArthur - 5 SOG, -1 Gragnani - 1 SOG, -2 Zagrapan - 1 SOG, -3 Whitmore - -4 In another Sunday contest, Drew Schiestel was -1 as Niagara fell to Oshawa, 4-1. The Generals rode a two-goal first period en route to taking a 2-1 series lead over the Dogs. Adding insult to the pain of defeat for Niagara is the indefinite loss of defenseman Alex Pietrangelo. Projected as a top-five pick in the June draft, Pietrangelo sits in a St. Catharines hospital diagnosed with mononucleosis and fluid in his abdomen due to a small tear in his spleen. Schiestel and the rest of the Dogs D will have to step it up a notch when play resumes Tuesday night.
