ROCHESTER, NY – The Binghamton Devils were unable to solve goaltender Linus Ullmark on Wednesday night in a 3-0 loss to the Rochester Americans in front of 3,289 fans at Blue Cross Arena.
Binghamton surrendered two power-play goals in a 1:19 span early in the game to trail the Americans by a pair. Nathan Bastian took a roughing minor 0:44 into the game and Bracken Kearns went off for tripping 1:59 into the game to put Rochester on a two-man advantage. Stuart Percy fired a shot that beat Mackenzie Blackwood on the glove side for a 1-0 lead at 2:12. Assists on Percy’s first of the year were given to Steve Moses and Casey Nelson.
With Bastian out of the box and Kearns still serving his minor penalty, Eric Cornel put the Americans up two goals. Blackwood denied the original shot but Cornel immediately released a follow-up shot that beat Blackwood on the blocker side as he tried to dive back to his right. Cornel’s goal was his second of the season with assists from Sahir Gill and Percy 3:31 into the game. After one period, Binghamton trailed Rochester 2-0 while being outshot 16-9.
