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.
