AHL Game Day: 1-20-20 Comets at Crunch

Wedgewood's triumphant return comes at a good time.

UTI-2
SYR-4

Scott Wedgewood, appearing for the first time since getting injured on December 6th, allowed 2 goals on 28 shots for the win. I'm not saying Wedgewood, with his season .893 save percentage, is the second coming. But, this is a shot in the arm, for sure.

19:04 SYR Smith (16), (Conacher, Volkov)(EN)

Alex Barre-Boulet, Boris Katchouk, and Wedgewood were the game's three stars.

Utica managed to get the old false hope goal with 4:18 left to play, but then discovered why we call it the false hope goal.

As crazy bad as Syracuse has been lately, they're just 4 points out of third place in the North Division. Maybe Wedgewood helps change the dynamic and the Crunch can make a little run here? Crazier things have happened, and this has been a proud AHL franchise in recent years.

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.
