Amerks shutout Crunch 4-0 to tie AHL playpff series at two games apiece

Last weekend after dropping the first two games of the AHL North playoff series in Syracuse, Rochester Amerks coach Seth Appert made it clear that nothing was decided.

This is a series, after all, the Crunch still needed one more win to clinch it, and Appert knew one thing: His team wasn’t going to make it easy on them with the next two at Blue Cross Arena.

Alas, after a brilliant, season-saving 8-5 win on Friday night, the Amerks put together a dominating performance on Sunday and evened the series at two games apiece with a 4-0 victory.

“You’re down 2-0, we didn’t create much offense, especially in Game 2, it’s easy to feel weak after something like that,” Appert said. “And I just liked the attitude and the approach the guys took all week to correct the things we needed to correct in our game to try to create a little bit more. And then that led to success on Friday, and Friday now plants a seed in (Syracuse’s) mind and they have to get back here today.”
