10/23 recap: Amerks impress "home" crowd with win over Bulldogs

Written By Kris Baker on Wednesday, October 24, 2012 | 10/24/2012

Cody Hodgson connected for a goal and an assist Tuesday as the Rochester Americans rode a 36-save performance from David Leggio to a 3-1 win over the Hamilton Bulldogs at First Niagara Center in Buffalo. Joe Finley and T.J. Brennan added singles.

Finley opened scoring with a shot from the left point that was deflected on the way in past Bulldogs netminder Peter Delmas. After Michal Bournival beat late coverage to tie the game 1-1, Hodgson gave the Amerks their second lead of the night by following-up a nice individual effort to cash a second chance rebound. Brennan sealed the game on a late third period power play by bombing a one-timer from the point off a Hodgson feed.

Elsewhere, Logan Nelson added an assist to his season total as Victoria squeaked out a 4-3 overtime victory over Brandon. Nelson found Alex Gogolev with a long stretch pass midway through the third period to make it a 2-2 game. Nelson now has points in 10 of the royals’ 13 games for a line of 3-11-14.

Colin Jacobs assisted on the only Prince George goal as the Cougars were blown out by Spokane 6-1. Jacobs, who recorded a -4 rating in the loss, has eight goals and 16 points through the season’s first 13 games.

Fun game to be at, Foligno and Hodgson were the best players on the ice as expected. All is good in sabre prospect land.
