Angelidis Leads Crunch Past Senators, 5-3


By Jeremy Houghtaling

Mike Angelidis didn't pause to think over his answer.

The Crunch captain netted the eventual game-winning power play goal, chipped in a pair of assists, and dropped the gloves in a brawl in the final minute. But Angelidis was most proud of the two points in the standings after a 5-3 win over the Binghamton Senators at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

"I'm proud the team got two points," Angelidis said. "We've lost a couple games there ... We got two in a row here. So it's key for us to keep going here. I think we've got to get our swagger back. The chemistry is starting to click here, especially offensively, hopefully we can just keep riding it."
