Gameday: Amerks at Phantoms, Race Towards Playoffs

Short and sweet, the run for the playoffs starts this weekend. There’s no more excuses. There’s no time left to blame road trips or even personal gripes with anyone. With only 18 games remaining it’s time to see what this Amerks team is capable of and that includes the coaching staff and players.

The North Division is tight and continues to become tighter with every game played. Hamilton has the clear lead in the division and that does not look like it will change. Every team is looking to get better so it’s time for this team to step it up.

The Amerks are on the road tonight against the Adirondack Phantoms. The last time these two teams played on February 10th the Phantoms won the game 3-1. Rochester won the two previous games.

Graham Mink is not playing tonight, he’s staying in Rochester because his wife is expected to give birth anytime. Daniel Steiner has sat out the two previous games and will be looking to show how valuable he is to the team when he’s in the lineup.

The Amerks also play Saturday in Toronto and then on Sunday in Buffalo against the Portland Pirates.
