Rochester currently trails the best-of-five series 1-0 following Tuesday’s 6-3 loss in Game 1 at Utica.
The matchup from Adirondack Bank Center in Utica will be livestreamed on AHLTV, featuring the call of Amerks Hall of Fame broadcaster Don Stevens, who’s currently in his remarkable 36th season as the legendary “Voice of the Amerks.”
