Syracuse gets Binghamton on Wednesday. They've now dropped to 7th in the Eastern Conference.
Box score from TheAHL.com.
While Syracuse failed to convert on six power play chances, the Hamilton Bulldogs cashed in three times to hand the Crunch its fourth-straight loss, 3-0, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.
Former Tampa Bay Lightning prospect Dustin Tokarski stopped all 43 Crunch shots for his first shutout of the season with Hamilton.
"He played really well," said Syracuse defenseman Matt Taormina of Tokarski. "He did see a lot of shots, but we didn't really get in front to screen him."

Florida finally managed to solve netminder Garret Sparks early in the third period but surrendered a goal in the waning minutes of regulation to give Orlando its second-straight victory in the three-game weekend set between the two clubs. Sparks was sharp in goal for the Solar Bears, stopping 32 of 33 Everblades shots on goal. Sparks' counterpart, Lightning prospect Kristers Gudlevskis, also gave his squad a sound effort in net. Special teams was part of the difference tonight as the Solar Bears converted one of the six power play opportunities it was awarded while the Everblades came up short on all three of its shots with the man-advantage. Charles Landry, Danick Gauthier and Carl Nielsen remain up with AHL Syracuse. Florida (10-4-2, 22 PTS) and Orlando (10-5-1, 21 PTS) go at it again Saturday night.
