21 and over tower of power games: 5 things to know as Amerks wrap up regular season and gear up for playoffs

3. Reinforcements arrive: With the Sabres eliminated from the NHL playoffs for an eighth consecutive season, Victor Oloffson, Alex Nylander and defenseman Lawrence Pilut have rejoined the Amerks. Oloffson leads the Amerks in scoring with 27-33 – 60. He’s one of six 20-goal men in Rochester’s lineup; last season the team didn’t have one. With a full complement of players, Taylor will be forced to rethink his line combinations and defensive pairings. He said he’s already lost sleep. “That’s the hard part, finding which guys click,’’ he said. “A lot of guys who were in Buffalo are coming back, so there are a lot of moving parts.’’ It’s a good problem to have. “Depth in the playoffs is very important,” Porter said. “It has been that way all year for us. We have lost some guys whether it’s because of recall or injury, guys have stepped up and played very well. We have not really had too much of a dip in our play, but it’s huge to get those guys back.”
