AHL Game Night: 11-8-19 Senators at Crunch

Barre-Boulet leads Crunch to OT win over Sens.

BEL-3
SYR-4 (OT)

Martin Spencer allowed 3 goals on 29 shots for the win.

First Period
14:14 BEL Batherson (4), (White)
14:34 BEL Batherson (5), (Labrie, Jaros)

Second Period
1:59 SYR Mueller (4), (Barre-Boulet, Gaunce)(PP)
2:41 BEL Abramov (2), (Batherson, White)

Third Period
7:31 SYR Barre-Boulet (7), (Gaunce, Mueller)(PP)

Overtime
2:07 SYR Martel (4), (Stephens, Gaunce)

Alex Barre-Boulet and Spencer were the game's first and third stars.

The star power of Syracuse's skill players showed up in making a comeback from a pair of two goal deficits. There's no doubt the quality the Crunch have with Barre-Boulet and Martel is near the top of the AHL when it comes to the kind of ability they bring to the rink. Expect that to continue to the fore for Ben Groulx's team as the regular season grinds along.

Syracuse still sits in sixth in the North Division, but they have at least a game in hand on all the divisional rivals ahead of them in the standings due to their sparse early season schedule.

NHL Game Day: 11-8-19 Lightning at Sabres (In Sweden)

Lightning get back on track in Global Series opener.

TB-3
BUF-2

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 2 goals on 22 shots for the victory.

First Period
3:19 TB Kucherov (5), (Point, Shattenkirk)
16:14 TB Killorn (3), (Hedman, Stamkos)(PP)

Third Period
7:45 TB Gourde (3), (Maroon, Paquette)
11:30 BUF Reinhart (7), (Jokiharju, Olofsson)

Nikita Kucherov and Victor Hedman were the game's first and third stars.

The Lightning, who got a week to regroup and get healthy, played a game that checked off a lot of the boxes as they try to regroup in this second ten game segment of the year. They're still a bit behind the eight ball needing eight points over the next six games to stay on playoff pace for the year, but this was a good start.

Alexander Volkov was -2 with 1 shot and 3 hits in 10:36.

Tough assignment to have to go into Hershey for the third in three nights.

Third Period
11:37 SYR Conacher (4), (Gaunce, Colton)
19:59 HER Sgarbossa (5), (unassisted)(EN)

Hershey's always been a fortress. So, while there are no moral victories in pro sports. I'm heartened the Crunch played a very competitive game on the backside of a three in three.
