AHL Playoff Game Night: 5-27-17 Bruins at Crunch

Syracuse punches their ticket for another trip to the Calder Cup Final.

PRO-1
SYR-3

Syracuse Wins the Series 4-1

Mike McKenna allowed 1 goal on 28 shots for the victory. Without the usual aid of gobs of goal support, McKenna came up big to finish off the B's.

First Period
0:41 SYR Thomas (4), (Bournival, Condra)

Second Period
13:27 PRO Porter (5), (Fitzgerald)

Third Period
14:54 SYR Conacher (8), (Thomas, Taormina)
19:01 SYR Conacher (9), (Gourde, Dumont)(EN)

Cory Conacher, McKenna, and Byron Froese were the game's three stars.

Providence put up the kind of effort you'd have expected to see in Game Four, but they eventually met the same fate at the hands of Cory Conacher and the veteran-heavy Crunch. Up next? It'll be a rematch in the Calder Cup Final with the Grand Rapid Griffins, who defeated Syracuse in the 2012-2013 Final. Four years later, only Matt Taormina is on Syracuse's roster from that original squad, but it's still an opportunity for the Crunch and the Lightning organization to settle up with Grand Rapids.
