Default AHL Game Night: 3-15-19 Wolf Pack at Crunch






Syracuse takes the North Division lead with smooth victory over Hartford.

HFD-2
SYR-3


Eddie Pasquale allowed 2 goals on 26 shots for the victory.

First Period
1:07 SYR Volkov (14), (Dumont, Conacher)

Second Period
19:27 SYR Andreoff (23), (Raddysh, Colton)

Third Period
1:56 SYR Stephens (10), (Katchouk, Brassart)
11:51 HFD Fontaine (9), (Gilmour, Beleskey)(PP)
18:53 HFD Lettieri (23), (Gilmour, Gropp)

Gabriel Dumont, Taylor Raddysh, and Boris Katchouk were the game's three stars. Katchouk made perhaps the play of the game with a Vincent Lecavalier-esque move around the corner on the rush and a behind-the-back pass that ended up being the goal that pushed the Syracuse lead to 3-0 that he chased with a roughing call and unsportsmanlike conduct penalty after starting a retaliatory scrap right after the goal. In other words, a Katchouk-ian microcosm of Katchouk-ianism. The goal gave the Crunch that all important three goal margin in the final frame. And, yes, Hartford did get the old false hope goal, but in the end the three goal lead remains a virtual death sentence for the trailing team in pro hockey.

With Rochester stubbing their toe against Charlotte, Syracuse moved one point ahead in the North Division while still holding a game in hand. Also of note: Syracuse is just a scant three points back of the Checkers for the best record in the entire AHL with both teams sitting on 14 games remaining on their schedules.

Box score from TheAHL.com.

It is good. 18 minutes of garbage time is very valuable during the stretch run of a very long regular season.

Unless you're a zillion points ahead of the rest of the league like TB is, in which case entire games are basically garbage time.

Katchouk has all the tools to be a dominant power forward, it just seems like he hasn't put it all together at the pro level. At least his elite penalty killing ability has followed to the AHL.
