Darcy (pictured) broke his personal 3-game pointless streak with two assists, and was a highlight save away from a third assist on a potential game-winner in the final seconds of overtime. Moncton won the shootout, 1-0, but their goal came after a lengthy review to see if the puck slid into the net under Francois Brassard’s pad as Brassard’s momentum carried him into the net. The Eagles fought back from down 4-1 to tie the game. Both of Darcy’s assists came in the third period. Conor Garland (undrafted) had a goal and three assists for Moncton. Garland, who is listed at 5-8 (generous), is second in the league in points with 50 in 27 games.

Paradis Nets Hat Trick, But Crunch Fall to Senators


By Jeremy Houghtaling

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."

Brewer Trade Keeps Paquette in Tampa, Helps Replenish Lost Pick

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).
