AHL Game Night: 3-17-17 Crunch at Comets

Crunch comeback dissolves into defeat.

SYR-3
UTI-4

Mike McKenna allowed 4 goals on 23 shots for the loss. Thus far with Syracuse he is 1-3-1 with a 4.23 GAA and a .868 save percentage. His acquisition has not led to the expected results thus far, needless to say.

First Period
13:22 UTI Rendulic (12), (Pelletier, Robak)

Second Period
14:42 UTI Pelletier (9), (Carcone, Rendulic)
17:44 SYR Ikonen (3), (Comrie, McGinn)(PP)

Third Period
4:05 UTI Archibald (20), (McEneny, Kunyk)(PP)
6:31 SYR Halmo (16), (Ikonen, Koekkoek)
7:01 SYR McGinn (7), (Condra)
8:15 UTI Zalewski (4), (Subban, Bancks)

Tye McGinn was the game's second star. Since returning from injury on 3/3, McGinn has 6-2-8 in 8 games. And there ain't nothing wrong with those stats.

Tonight's game was a frustrating one. Syracuse outshot Utica 38-23 and battled their way back from a pair of 2 goal deficits to get things level in the Third Period only to eventually lose the contest in regulation. The consistency from the net out needs to get dramatically better by the playoffs.
