Pasquale, Gabriel Dumont, and Nolan Valleau were the game's three stars.

Syracuse maintains a 2 point lead over Rochester in the North Division, and if my memory serves me correctly, they pull one game ahead of Utica in the annual series against their derby rivals. All in a night's work.

AHL Game Night: 3-6-19 Crunch at Comets

Crunch defeat rivals to take lead in North Division.

SYR-5
UTI-3

Eddie Pasquale allowed 3 goals on 33 shots for the victory. Syracuse's goaltending situation took on a soap opera-like tack today with the sudden demotion of prospect Connor Ingram to the Coast as an "internal matter." Credit Pasquale's professionalism in blocking out the noise to get the W in a key game tonight.

3:30 SYR Dumont (8), (Andreoff, Thomas)(SH)
9:34 SYR Colton (11), (unassisted)

15:16 UTI Anselmini (1), (Lind, Bancks)
19:57 SYR Rutta (4), (Conacher, Masin)(EN)

Carter Verhaeghe was the game's first star.

Syracuse burns its game in hand on Rochester to take the two point lead in the division with 18 games left to go in the regular season. Down the stretch we go.

AHL Game Night: 3-3-19 Crunch at Americans

Syracuse strikes back to even up weekend series with Rochester.

SYR-4
ROC-1

Martin Ouellette allowed 1 goal on 37 shots for the victory. There's real intrigue in net in Syracuse where speculation has ranged from Connor Ingram possibly nursing an injury, living in Ben Groulx's Chateau au Bow Wow, or the Crunch showcasing Eddie Pasquale for a potential trade for a veteran D-man so the Lightning can recall Jan Rutta full time. With the AHL trade deadline coming Monday, at least one of those scenarios will be eliminated soon.

First Period
7:24 SYR Andreoff (22), (Verhaeghe, Conacher)(PP)

Second Priod
3:57 ROC Nylander (10), (Tennyson, Leier)
6:38 SYR Barre-Boulet (27), (Verhaeghe, Conacher)(PP)
12:00 SYR Stephens (9), (Colton, Foote)(PP)

Third Period
18:51 SYR Katchouk (9), (Stephens)(EN)

Ouellette and Carter Verhaeghe were the game's first and second stars.

Syracuse and Rochester now sit tied atop the North Division with Syracuse holding a game in hand and a two game lead in the ROW tiebreaker.
