Blink and you'll miss it - wait - there it goes! The Rochester Americans have finished up their preseason after just two games against the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins, and are set to open the regular season on Friday, October 12.
The Amerks split the home-and-home series with the Baby Penguins, with both games finishing 4-3. Luke Adam, Phil Varone, and Brayden McNabb scored in the first game, and Varone added a goal in the second game, but it was defenseman Nick Crawford who was the big preseason winner. Crawford scored two goals in the second game and scored the shootout winner as the Amerks won 4-3.
