AHL Game Night: 12-6-19 Rocket at Crunch

Syracuse stops slide with First Period explosion.

LAV-2
SYR-5

Scott Wedgewood allowed 2 goals on 17 shots in a little over two periods of work. Spencer Martin stopped the three shots he faced the rest of the way. Wedgewood departed with a LBI.

First Period
0:19 SYR Smith (4), (Colton, Conacher)
9:13 SYR Gaunce (2), (Martel, Abbandonato)
10:50 SYR Katchouk (5), (Abbandonato, D. Stephens)
14:49 SYR Conacher (7), (Mueller)

Second Period
2:12 LAV Ouellet (4), (Barber, Evans)
9:14 LAV Vejdemo (8), (Barber, Evans)(PP)

Third Period
3:50 SYR Conacher (8), (Foote, Mueller)(PP)

Cory Conacher, Luke Witkowski, and Ross Colton were the game's three stars.

Syracuse came into this game a little embarrassed, a little ticked, and a lot hungry, and they took it out on Laval early and often. Good on the Crunch to also go ahead and put the game away early in the Third Period with the soul destroying PP goal to quell any comeback hopes by the Rocket. That's what good teams do.

AHL Game Night: 3-30-19 Comets at Crunch

Crunch issue a galactic beat down to Comets.

UTI-2
SYR-6

First Period

Third Period
11:51 UTI Gardiner (2), (Bancks)
19:50 SYR Raddysh (17), (Brassart)

Alexander Volkov, Carter Verhaeghe, and Tolvanen were the game's three stars. Volkov completes another late season assault on the 20 goal plateau. Ross Colton looks to have started his just a smidge to late to reach 20, but Taylor Raddysh might get there with a little push.

The Upstate Galaxy Cup, much like the Florida Governor's Cup, in the hands of the good guys.

Cal Foote is now just one point shy of the 30 point plateau for his rookie campaign. That's a solid first kick at the can.

Syracuse's win keeps them a scant one point ahead of Rochester for the top spot in the division. Both teams have six games remaining with Syracuse holding a two game ROW advantage.
