The Rochester Americans reached the Calder Cup finals against the Springfield Indians in 1990 but lost in six games and the highlights of that game are down below. Â Looking back it’s hard to imagine at that time there was only 14 teams in the American Hockey League compared to the 30 today.
The Amerks defeated the Utica Devils in the first round of the playoffs and then the Baltimore Skipjacks before reaching the finals of the 1989/1990 season.
Stay tuned, more highlights of the past to come! Â Thanks to Kevin (disengage) on the forums for recording and sharing these!!!
