Tonight’s Game: The Adirondack Flames play host tonight to the Rochester Americans. This is the fifth meeting between these two teams this season, but just the second in Adirondack. The Flames are in search of their eighth win in a row, and now own a 10-6-1-0 record, good for sixth place in the Western Conference.

Last Time Out: The Adirondack Flames made it seven wins in a row with a 4-1 win over the Syracuse Crunch on Friday night at the Glens Falls Civic Center. Joni Ortio was sharp in net, as he turned aside 26 shots to earn his eighth win of the season. David Wolf, Taylor Vause, Brodie Reid, and Emile Poirier were the goal scorers for Adirondack, while Wotherspoon, Cundari, Vause, Wolf, Poirier, and Reid all collected assists along the way.

Head To Head: The Flames and Americans have become familiar foes during the early days of this season, as these two teams have already met four times. After Rochester took the first two games against Adirondack, the Flames responded by sweeping the next two meetings with the Americans. The only prior matchup in Glens Falls, however, was taken by the Flames by a 7-3 final. Tonight is the fifth of 12 installments between the Flames and the Americans this season.

Scouting The Americans: With their 7-4 win over the Utica Comets last night, the Rochester Americans now have 17 points, and sit in seventh place in the West with an 8-8-1-0 record. Despite their win over one of the hottest teams in the league, the Americans have struggled as of late, winning just three of their last 10 games, with seven points over that stretch. Phil Varone has led the Americans offensively, with 18 (5-13-18) points in 17 games, while Audrey Makarov has been the mainstay between the pipes with five wins on the season, a 3.04 goals against average, and a .905 save percentage.

Flames Quick Hits

In his first two games with the Adirondack Flames, Taylor Vause has recorded three points, including a two point performance (1-1-2) Friday night against the Syracuse Crunch.

The Flames penalty kill has been hot as of late, killing off 22 straight penalties, as well as 33 of their last 35.

The Flames power play scored added two more tallies on Friday, as they converted two of three opportunities with the man-advantage. The Flames’ power play is currently ranked 3rd in the AHL, with a 23.3 percent conversion rate on the season.
