AHL Game Night 11/3: Americans at Falcons

How about not falling behind 3 goals to start the game for a change?

ROC-5
SPR-4

Karri Ramo allowed 3 goals on 10 shots for the loss before being pulled for Jonathan Boutin who allowed 2 goals on 24 shots for the loss. Credit to the Falcons for battling back and making a game of this one against a very good Rochester team, coming within just 1:19 of stealing a point, but have mercy, how about not playing from half a mile behind for a change?

Justin Keller led the way for the Falcons with a breakout night scoring his first AHL goal and adding three, three, three helpers and was named second star of the game. Dan Cavanaugh also chipped in a pair of helpers as the Birds' checking line slowly emerges from it's October long slumber. The Falcons' other goals were scored by rookie sensation Blair Jones, veteran Eric Healey, and the long invisible in this early season Darren Reid. Jay Rosehill checked in with an individual assist which was his first point of the season in the AHL.
