Moose conclude road swing with 5-1 win in Rochester


Jason Jaffray netted a pair of goals as Manitoba took a 5-1 road win over Rochester on Monday at the Blue Cross Arena.

Guillaume Desbiens and Mark Cullen each posted a goal and an assist for the Moose, who wrapped up a six-game road swing at 6-1-0-0. Manitoba is now 15-0-0-1 in its last 16 games against the Americans, including a 4-0-0-0 mark this season.

Jaffray put the Moose on top 1-0 just 2:50 into the game, but Rochester’s Michael Duca tallied his fourth goal of the season to tie it at 10:10.

From that point, Manitoba received unanswered goals from James Neal in the first period, Jaffray in the second, and Cullen and Desbiens in the third.

Lawrence Nycholat and Mario Bliznak each chipped in a pair of assists, and Moose goaltender Karl Goehring earned the victory with 26 saves on 27 shots.
