The Pirates are still last in the Atlantic Division with a 5-9 record, but have played .500 hockey over their last six games.  They head into their first of two games in Buffalo this season against the Rochester Americans.  The Americans are first in the North Division and first overall in the AHL with an 11-1-1 record.  

Overall this past week, goaltender Jean-Phillippe Lamoureaux has been the player of the week.  Lamoureaux stopped 47 of 49 in the past two games in relief for Jhonas Enroth.  While Lamoureaux started the season slow, he has heated up in the first two games in November.  Lamoureaux should continue to play well for this team as he continues to gain experience in his first AHL season. 

For the forwards, Phillip Gogulla had three points on the week, with one goal and two assists.  He was the lone scorer in the Springfield game and is currently fourth on the team in points with seven.  This is Gogulla's first season in the AHL and if he continues at this pace, he will continue to move up the forward ladder.
