Opponent: Rochester AmericansSite: Baltimore ArenaTime: 7Radio: WITH (1230 AM), WAMD (970 AM)Outlook: This is a makeup of a game snowed out Jan. 7. The Bandits were playing up a storm of their own then, winning four of five and scoring in bunches. Goals have been hard to come by since Plug Line center J. F. Jomphe was called up, but the defense has taken up the slack, allowing two goals or fewer in six of 10 games. Rochester beat two good teams over the weekend -- Adirondack, 5-2, and league-leading Albany, 4-3.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- The Bandits left most of their key players back in Baltimore and all but conceded a 5-2 defeat to the Rochester Americans last night in the final game of the American Hockey League regular season.Three of the Bandits' top four scorers -- forwards Dwayne Norris, Jim Campbell and Viacheslav Butsayev -- were spared the bus trip to Rochester for a game with no playoff implications. David Sacco is nursing a bruised left foot and did not play, but he will be ready for the best-of-five series with Hershey beginning Friday.
