ROCHESTER – The Binghamton Devils poured 40 shots on net, however, Jonas Johansson stopped them all as the Rochester Americans picked up a 3-0 win over the Binghamton Devils in front of 4,067 at BlueCross Arena on Friday night.
John Gilmour’s shot from the blue line put Rochester up 1-0 late in the first period. Right as the Devils penalty came to an end, Gilmour sent a wrist shot through traffic and by the blocker of goaltender Evan Cormier. The goal was Gilmour’s second of the year with assists from Taylor Leier and Jean-Sebatian Dea with 3:46 remaining. The Americans took that one-goal lead in the first period along with a 15-12 shot advantage.
In the second period, Tyler Randell tipped a low shot at the top of the circle to give the Americans a 2-0 lead.

The lone assist was given to Gilmour on the shot and Binghamton trailed by two to start the third period.
Lawrence Pilut added an empty-net goal late in regulation for the 3-0 victory. Cormier stopped 22 of 24 in the loss while Jonas Johansson stopped all 40 shots in the win.
