Wilcox and Mike Blunden were the game's second and third stars.

Syracuse outshot the Phantoms 48-30 in regulation, but it still took a Tye McGinn goal with just 30 seconds to go in the Third Period just for the Crunch to salvage a point from the game. The final shot advantage was 53-31 on a frustrating night where the Crunch probably deserved better.

Phantoms' Stolarz Stymies Crunch


By Jeremy Houghtaling

The Syracuse Crunch seemed to throw everything they could at the net.

The Crunch registered 53 shots on goal and controlled the play for long stretches, but needed a goal with the extra attacker on in the final minute of regulation to send the game to overtime. Led by Phantoms goalie Anthony Stolarz, Lehigh Valley prevailed over Syracuse in a shootout, 3-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Wednesday.

“I wish we would have gotten the two points tonight. We sorely need them,” Crunch head coach Rob Zettler said. “I’m happy with our guys’ effort. The process was good, the details were good, but the outcome was not what we wanted.”

Syracuse’s Mike Blunden finished with a goal and an assist. Tye McGinn added one goal, and Jeff Tambellini, Anthony DeAngelo, and Adam Erne each had one assist.
