Shootout
SYR- Volkov, Somppi
LAV- Audette

Andy Andreoff and Carter Verhaeghe were the game's first and second stars.

When Syracuse recently lost Mitchell Stephens from the lineup again due to injury, one might've been concerned with the Crunch once again losing the services of one of their best centermen. Except, oh, they just pulled Otto Somppi out of the can. Somppi's first two games with Syracuse, 1-1-2 and a shootout winner tonight. Tampa Bay's organization continues to be an embarrassment of riches from a depth standpoint.

The Crunch Star disintegrates Bingo.

BNG-0
SYR-5

Connor Ingram had an 18 save shutout in unseasonably light work.

First Period
7:01 SYR Barre-Boulet (9), (Gaunce, Verhaeghe)(PP)
9:40 SYR Stephens (2), (Verhaeghe, Gaunce)

Second Period
12:37 SYR Verhaeghe (9), (Stephens, Barre-Boulet)

Third Period
3:04 SYR Yan (5), (Stephens, Archambault)

Mitchell Stephens, Alex Barre-Boulet, and Ingram were the game's three stars. Stephens returned to the lineup after missing over a month of hockey due to injury and promptly put 1 goal and 3 points on the board. Not bad.

Syracuse is 4 points back of Rochester for the North Division lead with three games in hand on the Americans.

AHL Game Night: 10-19-18 Crunch at Devils

Ingram pitches a shutout in slump busting win.

SYR-4
BNG-0

Connor Ingram stopped all 27 shots he faced and a penalty shot for the victory. How a man does all that and doesn't get a star is beyond me.

First Period
4:07 SYR Andreoff (1), (Dumont, Gaunce)(SH)

Second Period
12:59 SYR Stephens (1), (Cernak, Dumont)(PP)

Third Period
9:46 SYR Andreoff (2), (Martel, Verhaeghe)(PP)
19:41 SYR Katchouk (1), (Stephens)(EN)(SH)

Andy Andreoff, Gabriel Dumont, and Mitchell Stephens were the game's three stars.

Danick Martel appeared for the Crunch on a conditioning stint after not getting into a game thus far for the Lightning and had a helper. Boris Katchouk scored his first pro goal into the empty net to seal the deal.

Syracuse evens their record at 2-2-0. They've played significantly fewer games than most of the teams in the Eastern Conference and have a fair number of games in hand to make up.
