Verhaeghe, Carter

AHL Game Night: 1-26-19 Americans at Crunch

Verhaeghe's hat trick inches Crunch closer in the division.

Verhaeghe, in my opinion, merited a cup of coffee in Tampa in the second half of last season and he's done nothing but improve his stock since then. The guy's done nothing but produce since coming over to the Lightning organization after the Isles cut bait. On a similar note, Jan Rutta now has 2-2-4 in his first couple of games with the Crunch. The guy's a NHL defenseman, and he seems to be a nice depth piece after the trade deadline when rosters can be expanded.

Syracuse sneaks to within three points of the division lead with two games in hand on Rochester.

Shootout
CLE- Korostelev
SYR- NONE

Alex Barre-Boulet, Gabriel Dumont, and Carter Verheaghe were the game's three stars.

Syracuse surrendered a 6-on-4 goal with under a minute to go that ultimately cost them a point in the standings. That point accounts for the deficit between Syracuse and first place Rochester, although the Crunch hold two games in hand.

AHL Game Day: 1-5-19 Marlies at Crunch

Crunch done in by poor opening period.

TOR-5
SYR-2

Eddie Pasquale allowed 4 goals on 24 shots for the loss.

First Period
6:09 TOR Brooks (6), (Mueller, Gagner)(PP)
12:23 TOR Gagner (9), (Rosen, Bracco)(PP)

17:02 TOR Mueller (19), (Gagner, Rosen)(PP)

Third Period
18:50 TOR Brooks (7), (Gagner)(EN)

Carter Verhaeghe was the game's third star.

The Crunch fell behind 3-0 in the First Period and that was ultimately the margin. They made a valiant attempt to climb back into it in the Second Period, but Toronto got their third power play goal toward the end of that frame, which really took the starch out of the rally.

AHL Game Night: 1-4-19 Sound Tigers at Crunch

Crunch quickly get back on winning track.

BRI-1
SYR-3

Eddie Pasquale allowed 1 goal on 20 shots in the victory.

First Period
12:26 SYR Barre-Boulet (16), (Conacher, Verhaeghe)(PP)

Second Period
4:40 SYR Volkov (8), (unassisted)

Third Period
6:55 SYR Verhaeghe (14), (Barre-Boulet)
9:18 BRI Koivula (11), (Wotherspoon)

Alex Barre-Boulet, Carter Verhaeghe, and Alexander Volkov were the game's three stars. Coincidentally, three players very much in line for cups of coffee in the NHL in the second half as the Lightning may want to diagnose just how much NHL-ready depth they might have available down in Syracuse.
