Kassian scores again as Amerks win third straight

Zack Kassian scored a goal for the third straight game to help Rochester to a 2-1 Saturday night win over Grand Rapids. The 6'3 rookie, who pounced on a rebound for his fourth goal in his last five contests, continues to lead the Amerks with seven goals and 13 points through the club's first 15 games.

Veteran forward Colin Stuart potted the game winning goal, his fifth mark of the year, at 18:36 of the middle frame.

With Papa Kass providing a solid prospect beat, the bigger story this weekend may have been the play of veteran goaltender Drew MacIntyre. The 28-year old stopper made 78 saves in earning Friday and Saturday wins, and could emerge as the #1 guy if his sharp play continues Wednesday against Syracuse.

Kassian: G, +2
Szydlowski: A, 2 SOG
Crawford: even
