Toronto Leads the Series 2-0

Connor Ingram shined allowing 2 goals on 57 shots for the OT loss. He's exceeded expectations as a rookie and continues to make you think his ceiling could be higher than originally thought.

Ingram was the game's second star.

That's a tough one to take, given the Crunch were just a bounce away from putting themselves in a really good position in this series. As it is, there's no need to panic. It's not a series until someone drops a home game. But, it does put a lot of pressure on Syracuse to win the next two tilts at home to get the series back to level.
