The winner of last week’s “Play of the Week” as chosen by the fans was Stephen Keogh’s late fourth quarter goal. After receiving a behind-the-back pass from Casey Powell, Keogh bounced a shot five-hole on Buffalo goaltender Anthony Cosmo. CLICK HERE TO WATCH LAST WEEK’S “PLAY OF THE WEEK”

Johnny Powless continued his goal-scoring streak with the first goal of the game. He has now scored at least one goal in eight consecutive games. Powless followed a screen from Scott Campbell and netted this goal 1:08 into the first quarter.

In the 2012 East Division Finals against Toronto, Cory Vitarelli scored a wraparound goal against Rock goaltender Nick Rose which earned him the nickname “Air Dogger”. On Saturday, he struck again with another wraparound goal from behind the net. After the game, Vitarelli said “We were watching tape from the game last week against Philly and they got some (goals) from behind (the net).”

Cody Jamieson sniped the top left corner of the goal on this shorthanded shot. Dan Dawson used his large 6-5 frame to pick two Toronto defenders, giving “Jammer” a clear shot at the net.

For the third consecutive week, Rochester defenseman Brad Self has scored a breakaway goal for the Knighthawks. Against Toronto, he stole a mishandled pass from Kasey Beirnes, then raced down to floor and beat Rose one-on-one.

Vitarelli makes his second appearance on this week’s list of candidates for the “Play of the Week” with his second highlight-reel goal of the game. With two seconds left on the shot clock, Vitarelli let go of this behind-the-back shot and bounced the ball past Rose’s glove.
