AHL Game Night: 11-2-12 Crunch at Phantoms
Impressive thumping of a team with a lot of NHL talent on it.
Dustin Tokarski (pictured) picked up his 4th win of the season by stopping 23 of the 24 shots he faced. His numbers so far look like a carbon copy of last season's, right down to the .913 save percentage.
SYR Conacher, (6) , 10:03
ADK Zolnierczyk, (3) (Eddy, Couturier), 17:37
SYR Panik, (2) , 5:41
SYR Johnson, (6) (Taormina, Cote), 7:16
SYR Taormina, (1) , 19:22 (EN/SH)
Tokarski and Cory Conacher were the game's first and second stars.
Panik attack, y'all! Off the milk carton and onto the scoresheet.
This was a really odd game when you think that Syracuse actually got held down to 18 shots. As I said, there's a lot of NHL talent on Adirondack. On paper, they're one of the real threats in the conference, so to whip them 4-1 in their barn is good for the soul.
Syracuse is off until Wednesday when they'll start a 2 game set against Hamilton.
