Crunch continue to scuffle along with SO loss.

BNG-4

AHL Game Day: 1-20-20 Comets at Crunch

Wedgewood's triumphant return comes at a good time.

UTI-2
SYR-4

Scott Wedgewood, appearing for the first time since getting injured on December 6th, allowed 2 goals on 28 shots for the win. I'm not saying Wedgewood, with his season .893 save percentage, is the second coming. But, this is a shot in the arm, for sure.

Second Period
5:02 SYR Katchouk (10), (Barre-Boulet, Thomas)
16:04 SYR Volkov (5), (Smith)

Third Period
12:26 SYR Barre-Boulet (17), (Sieloff, Colton)
14:40 UTI Gadjovich (10), (Teves, Bancks)
15:42 UTI Boucher (24), (Bailey, Juolevi)(PP)
19:04 SYR Smith (16), (Conacher, Volkov)(EN)

Alex Barre-Boulet, Boris Katchouk, and Wedgewood were the game's three stars.

Utica managed to get the old false hope goal with 4:18 left to play, but then discovered why we call it the false hope goal.

As crazy bad as Syracuse has been lately, they're just 4 points out of third place in the North Division. Maybe Wedgewood helps change the dynamic and the Crunch can make a little run here? Crazier things have happened, and this has been a proud AHL franchise in recent years.
