BELLEVILLE, ON - The Belleville Senators flipped the script on the Rochester Americans and put together another strong effort, knocking off their divisional rivals 4-1, at CAA Arena.

The Senators power play would do most of the damage through the first two periods, with Garrett Pilon wiring his 13th goal of the season past Devon Levi a little over three minutes into the game. Then midway through the second, Rourke Chartier extended the lead with his sixth goal of the year, hammering a one-timer home to make it 2-0 after 40 minutes.

Cole Reinhardt tacked on his fifth of the season at around the five-minute mark of the third, to make it 3-0. Rochester's only goal would come at 9:22, as Zack Metsa finally beat Kevin Mandolese. Chartier would find the empty net for his second goal of the game with a little over a minute and a half left, lobbing the puck over the Amerks defenders and one-hopping it into the empty net.

The Senators are off until Wednesday when they visit the Toronto Marlies for a school day game at Coca-Cola Coliseum.
