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.
