Alexander Volkov, Ben Thomas, and Boris Katchouk were the game's three stars. Volkov, who was among the last cuts from the Lightning's camp, had been notably absent from the goalscoring ledger throughout the early parts of this AHL campaign. Good to see him open his 2018-2019 account tonight and good to see fellow prized prospect Boris Katchouk go get a couple of helpers to boot.

Hopefully this starts the climb back up the mountain for the Crunch. They've got at least two games in hand on the rest of the North Division, so if they can string some W's together, they can quickly climb to the middle of the divisional pack with teams like the Sens.

Carter Verhaeghe was the game's third star.

Give some credit to the Crunch for battling their way out of the 2-0 hole they originally dug themselves in the First Period, but in a span of a little under eleven minutes from the midway point of the game on they allowed three unanswered and on the wrong side of garbage time. Syracuse sits at the bottom of the North Division, and although they have at least two games in hand on every other team in the division it's starting to get a little concerning.

19:10 UTI Sifers (1), (Jasek)

Third Period
12:41 SYR Andreoff (3), (Barre-Boulet, Cernak)(PP)

Cory Conacher and Alex Barre-Boulet were the game's second and third stars. Barre-Boulet now has 2 goals and 5 points in his first 5 pro games.

Syracuse did some good things in this game to nearly crawl out of a three goal hole they dug for themselves early in this contest. Still, the team's got to have a better showing in the 20-30 minutes of games than they did and they cannot allow goals late in periods like they did to Sifers. That ultimately became the margin for Utica and just can't happen. Hockey 101.
