A night that would otherwise be memorable for all the right reasons was soured for Philippe Paradis.
The Syracuse forward netted a natural hat trick in less than a five minute span to turn a two-goal deficit into a Crunch lead late in the first period. But the Binghamton Senators rallied for four goals in the third to top Syracuse, 6-3, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.
"It doesn't matter how many goals you score, you just need the two points at the end of the day," Paradis said. "We didn't do it."
Bingo crushes Crunch in Third Period fiasco.
Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 5 goals on 32 shots for the victory. At some point, patience wears thin waiting for what should be one of the better goaltending tandems in the AHL to play like it.

Box score from TheAHL.com.
Today the Tampa Bay Lightning announced the club acquired a third-round pick in 2015 from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for defenseman Eric Brewer.?The 2015 third round pick the Lightning received from the Ducks was previously acquired from the Edmonton Oilers.
According to reports, the Lightning will retain 26% of Brewer’s salary.
BP Commentary: This was the move everyone was waiting for so Victor Hedman could come back into the lineup. I mentioned in the podcast Brewer was an outside-the-box option to be moved as the two waiver-free forwards, Namestnikov and Paquette, had done enough to stay in Tampa yet were the most likely to go. The Brewer trade enables both to stay, but also means the 2-scratch forward rotation will continue. It also means Syracuse, which was counting on one of them to be a part of the Crunch, is painfully thin at center (Richard, Angelidis, Kunyk, Lynch - who is on a tryout).
