Amerks point streak reaches nine games in overtime loss to Marlies

While the Rochester Americans (12-3-2-2) extended their point streak to a season-long nine games (7-0-1-1), it was the Toronto Marlies (14-2-2-1) who took the extra point as they left The Blue Cross Arena Friday night with a 3-2 overtime win.

Despite the loss in overtime, Rochester has earned 28 out of a possible 38 points through its first 19 games of the campaign and has picked up points in 14 of the last 16 contests overall, going 10-2-2-2 over that span, including earning at least one point in every game in November.
