Prospects Report: Amerks home winning streak snapped

The Rochester Americans head to Christmas Break with a disappointing finish on home ice.

While Justin Bailey opened the scoring for the Amerks, the Binghamton Senators came back to earn a 4-1 win Monday night in Blue Cross Arena.

The loss snapped a three-game home winning streak for the Amerks.

Bailey scored his 10th goal of the season at 9:07 of the first period but Binghamton tied the game a minute later then grabbed a 2-1 lead by intermission.

“We had a strong first period despite trailing 2-1,” Bailey said to Rochester media after the game. “We came out and played our game but over the last two periods we got away from the things that made us successful for whatever reason, and against a team like Binghamton, they do not give their opponents much room and it came back to bite us tonight.”

Chris Rumble, who played at Canisius College, scored two goals for Binghamton while former Amerk Jason Akeson had two assists.

Rochester fell to 11-17-0-1 and next plays on Dec. 26 when the Amerks host Syracuse at 7:05 p.m. in Blue Cross Arena
