Ingram, Connor

AHL Playoff Game Night: 5-5-18 Crunch at Marlies

Crunch leave Toronto empty handed after double OT thriller.

Eastern Conference Semifinals

SYR-1
TOR-2 (2OT)

Toronto Leads the Series 2-0

Connor Ingram shined allowing 2 goals on 57 shots for the OT loss. He's exceeded expectations as a rookie and continues to make you think his ceiling could be higher than originally thought.

Double Overtime
15:10 TOR Gauthier (1), (Engvall)

Ingram was the game's second star.

That's a tough one to take, given the Crunch were just a bounce away from putting themselves in a really good position in this series. As it is, there's no need to panic. It's not a series until someone drops a home game. But, it does put a lot of pressure on Syracuse to win the next two tilts at home to get the series back to level.

Bye, Rochester.

Connor Ingram allowed 3 goals on 36 shots for the victory in his playoff debut.

First Period

13:50 RCH O'Regan (1), (Porter, Griffith)
19:08 SYR Volkov (3), (Peca, Condra)(EN)

Mitchell Stephens, Matthew Peca, and Gabriel Dumont were the game's three stars.

Well that was an interesting series considering the bluster from the Americans coming into the series based on their late regular season play against the Crunch. One of these teams clearly had an extra gear or two and the other was Rochester.

AHL Game Night: 4-11-18 Crunch at Americans

Ingram defeats Americans almost single-handedly.

SYR-1
RCH-0

Connor Ingram pitched a 38 save shutout for the victory, helping Syracuse overcome a staggering 38-18 shot deficit in the game. Ingram is now sporting a very stout 20-11-6 record with a 2.33 GAA, .914 save percentage, and 4 shutouts. It's a rookie campaign I dare say has exceeded expectations given the past performance of similar Lightning goaltending prospects, and points to the fact Ingram could have higher upside.

First Period
NO SCORING

Second Period
NO SCORING

Third Period
1:22 SYR Peca (13), (Verhaeghe, McNeill)

Ingram and Matthew Peca were the game's first and second stars.

Rochester looks to potentially be Syracuse's first round opponent in the playoffs, so there's positive and negative to consider in the night's victory heading into the postseason.

AHL Game Night: 3-31-18 Checkers at Crunch

Checkers put abrupt end to Crunch win streak.

CHA-4
SYR-1

Connor Ingram allowed 3 goals on 29 shots for the loss.

First Period
7:56 CHA Carrick (9), (Poturalski, McKegg)

Second Period
13:08 CHA McKegg (12), (Poturalski, Saarela)

Third Period
1:39 CHA McKegg (13), (Saarela, Poturalski)
6:23 SYR Archambault (12), (Condra, Peca)(PP)
18:37 CHA Saarela (24), (unassisted)(EN)

Ingram was the game's third star despite being victimized for 2 goals and 1 assist by ex-Lightning legend Greg McKegg. The betrayal cuts deep.

The Crunch are now off until Friday, when I suspect the game will be a-Foote in Bingo against the Devils.
