 THREE STARS

3. David Leggio
 UPDATE
The Amerks are now 3-0-0-0 on the season when playing Lake Erie.
 WHAT'S NEXT
Rochester returns home to the Blue Cross Arena tomorrow night when they take on the Binghamton Senators at 7:05 PM.

The Rochester Americans set a new franchise attendance record by playing in front of a crowd of 19,070 fans at First Niagara Center. The record-setting attendance also represents the eighth-largest crowd for a single game in American Hockey League history and the fourth-largest for an AHL game played indoors. Rochester’s previous franchise record was set exactly eight years to the day on December 28, 2004, as 17,898 fans packed into then HSBC Arena to see the Amerks play the Edmonton Road Runners.

Cody Hodgson picked up right where he left off, scoring two goals for the second game in a row. Hodgson is now tied for the team lead with six multi-point games this season. Since returning from injury, Hodgson has eight points (4+4) in six games - including five points (4+1) in his last two games.

Mark Mancari extended his point streak to five games with a two-point (1+1) night, and he has now collected eight points (2+6) during the streak. Mancari helped get the scoring started with an assist on Hodgson’s first-period power play goal, and then added a goal of his own at the start of the second period. The Amerks winger is now third on the team with 23 points (6+17).

T.J. Brennan is now tied for seventh in the AHL with 29 points (12+17) after notching an assist on Rochester’s first goal of the game. Brennan has been hot as of late, tallying 11 points (3+8) in his last seven games.

Monsters rookie winger Andrew Agozzino extended his point streak to seven games with an assist on Lake Erie’s lone goal. Lake Erie’s David van der Gulik also had an assist, pushing his point streak to six games.
