Amerks swept by Crunch, season comes to an end

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WKBW) - Allowing 18 goals in three games certainly isn't a winning formula and the Rochester Americans learned the hard way, falling to the Syracuse Crunch 6-3 on Wednesday as their season came to an end. Syracuse won all three games in the first round of the Calder Cup playoffs as the Amerks failed to win a single game in their first postseason berth since 2014. 

Despite jumping out to an early game and outshooting their opponent 35-25, Rochester couldn't contain the high-powered crunch who scored three goals in less than three minutes during the second period. 

After the game, Linus Ullmark, Brendan Guhle, and Kevin Porter discussed their season and Rochester and what they can build on moving forward.
