Amerks lose on Devils' shootout goal

Jake Walman, the third Binghamton shooter, scored in the shootout to give the Devils a 2-1 victory over the Rochester Americans Sunday afternoon at Blue Cross Arena in Rochester.

Walman beat Amerks goalie Linus Ullmark to give the Devils a sweep of their two weekend games against Rochester. Binghamton won, 1-0, in overtime on Saturday on its home ice.

Each team scored a regulation goal in the second period. Kyle Criscuolo's 15th of the season with assists by Taylor Fedun and Nathan Paetsch, put Rochester in front at 8:50. Walman tied it with his third of the season at 10:50 with Michael Kapla and Ben Thomson assisting.

Binghamton goalie Ken Appleby, who made 22 saves and stopped Rochester shootout attempts by Seth Griffin, Kevin Porter and Alexander Nylander was named the game's first start. Ullmark was the No. 2 star. Criscuolo was the third star.

It was the league-leading 23 overtime or shootout game for Rochester this season. It was the sixth shootout loss for the Amerks who are 26-13-8-6 overall. It was the 36th time in the last 45 games that Rochester has collected at least one point in a game.

Rochester will be home against the Syracuse Crunch on Wednesday night.
