AHL Game Night: 3-16-19 Devils at Crunch

Volkov and company expand Crunch's North Division lead.

BNG-1
SYR-4

Martin Ouellette allowed just 1 goal on 18 shots for the victory.

First Period
4:02 SYR Andreoff (24), (Barre-Boulet, Verhaeghe)(PP)

Second Period
1:59 SYR Volkov (15), (Dumont, Tammela)
11:42 SYR Verhaeghe (28), (Stephens, Labrie)
19:24 BNG Schmelzer (10), (Saracino, Seney)(PP)

Third Period
19:02 SYR Volkov (16), (Andreoff, Thomas)(EN)

Carter Verhaeghe, Alexander Volkov, and Ouellette were the game's three stars. Volkov made a strong push late in the season last year to seal a 20-goal campaign and he looks to be following the same roadmap this season. He now had 4 goals in his last 5 games to ease up to 16 goals for the season.

Syracuse's win, coupled with Rochester's loss to Charlotte, pushes the Crunch up to a 3 point advantage in the race for the North Division crown. Now the schedule gets a little spicy with a short turnaround for a Tuesday/Wednesday back-to-back against the league-leading Checkers. Glass half empty man says, "Oh my goodness, if the Crunch drop both games they open the door for Rochester to take back the division lead!" Glass half full man says, "Sweep the set and the Crunch will have the best rest record in the entire league." The stakes are high this coming week.

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.

NHL Game Night: 3-14-19 Lightning at Red Wings

Lightning take Wings' souls en route to season sweep.

TB-5
DET-4

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 4 goals on 27 shots for the loss.

First Period
2:20 DET Bowey (2), (Ehn, Rasmussen)
10:24 DET Helm (7), (unassisted)(SH)

Second Period
3:43 DET Abdelkader (6),(Glendening)
12:57 TB Stamkos (35), (Miller, Kucherov)(PP)

Third Period
1:46 TB Point (38), (Stamkos, Kucherov)
8:24 Kucherov (34), (Hedman, Point)(PP)
8:50 TB Johnson (25), (Cernak, Palat)
16:38 TB Kucherov (35), (Point)
18:18 DET Rasmussen (8), (Vanek, Zadina)

Nikita Kucherov and Steven Stamkos were the game's first and second stars.

Detroit came into this contest having dropped 14 straight contests against the Lightning. Tampa Bay, conversely, came into this game with a dozen games worth of time to kill before the postseason. So, when Detroit got up 3-0 in the Second Period, somewhat against the run of play, it might've been easy for the Lightning to decide it wasn't worth the effort to mount the comeback. No such luck, Detroit. Five straight goals later the Lightning had once again emotionally gutted their division rivals, completed another season sweep, and extended their streak of victories over the Wings to a hearty 15 games. I laughed. I cried. No, actually, I only laughed. A lot.

AHL Game Night: 3-13-19 Crunch at Rocket

Crunch keep pace by doubling up Laval.

SYR-4
LAV-2

Eddie Pasquale allowed 2 goals on 32 shots for the victory.

First Period
2:39 LAV Ouellet (4), (unassisted)(PP)
14:28 SYR Foote (8), (Andreoff)

Second Period
18:37 SYR Raddysh (16), (Colton, Stephens)(PP)

Third Period
1:14 SYR Dumont (10), (unassisted)
18:43 LAV Vejdemo (12), (Evans, Alain)
19:15 SYR Barre-Boulet (29), (Pasquale)(EN)

Pasquale and Gabriel Dumont were the game's first and second stars. Taylor Raddysh is started to sneak up on the 20 goal plateau while Ross Colton has continued his hot run of production as of late. In his last six games, Colton has a stylish 3 goals and 8 points.

Unfortunately, Rochester also won tonight, so Syracuse only managed to keep pace in the division. They currently sit one point back of the Americans with a game in hand.
