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.

AHL Game Night: 12-12-18 Crunch at Marlies

Syracuse builds a snowman in the Marlies' own barn.

SYR-8
TOR-1

Eddie Pasquale allowed 1 goal on 29 shots for the victory.

First Period
4:46 SYR Andreoff (12), (Gaunce, Masin)
10:25 SYR Barre-Boulet (10), (Valleau, Pasquale)
19:33 TOR Bracco (5), (Mueller, Gagner)(PP)
19:53 SYR Yan (6), (Verhaeghe)

Second Period
7:00 SYR Somppi (1), (Bourke, Raddysh)
8:43 SYR Colton (2), (Yan)
18:26 SYR Gaunce (5), (Verhaeghe, Katchouk)

Third Period
9:08 SYR Andreoff (13), (Barre-Boulet, Conacher)(PP)
11:39 SYR Barre-Boulet (11), (unassisted)

Alex Barre-Boulet, Andy Andreoff, and Dennis Yan were the game's three stars. Boulet now sits above a point a game pace in this rookie pro campaign with 24 points in his first 22 games. Otto Somppi also cashed in his first pro goal in his AHL season debut with the Crunch after a brief stint in Orlando.

Toronto's been a fairly regular tormentor of the Crunch over the past few seasons, so to hang eight goals on them in front of their home crowd represents a small measure of sweet revenge. Syracuse moves past Cleveland into second place in the North Division with the win, four points back of Rochester with three games in hand.

Ben Groulx is a warlock.

11:55 SYR Raddysh (9), (Stephens, Volkov)(PP)

Ingram was the game's second star.

Syracuse put forth a very game effort to try to pull off the Third Period comeback against the division leaders, but came up just short. They slip to third in the division with the loss, one point back of Cleveland for second place and six points trailing Rochester.
