They still trail the Toronto Marlies by seven points in the race for the top spot in the North Division with Toronto holding two games in hand. But, the Crunch and their fans go to bed tonight secure in the knowledge they're in the dance and their young team is a legit threat to do damage once they get there.

Crunch's Yan Focuses on Consistency in Rookie Season


By Jeremy Houghtaling

Consistency is a key for Dennis Yan’s development.

The Syracuse Crunch winger has four multi-point games during his rookie season, including a goal and an assist against Laval Saturday. Of his 20 points in 40 games this season, nine have come during a multi-point performance.

Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx believes Yan has the tools, but needs to use them each and every game.

“I like the skills. I like the size. He’s got to bring it together every day,” Groulx said. “He’s not consistent at doing that. When he does that, he’s a very good player. When he does not, he’s a different player.”

Gabriel Dumont and Dennis Yan were the game's second and third stars. Dennis Yan: all he does is score.

On the opposite end of the spectrum from the big club's matinee tilt, Syracuse had to face the disappointment of seeing a two goal Third Period lead slip away into an Overtime loss.

With Toronto falling to Rochester, the Crunch did narrow the Marlies lead in the North Division to just four points with Toronto holding a pair of games in hand. So, there's a silver lining.
