Groshev comes alive.
Hugo Alnefelt allowed two goals on 27 shots before allowing one of three shooters to convert in the penalty shot session for the SO loss.

Syracuse outshot Belleville 33-26 in the matchup. Maxim Groshev has started his North American career with 2-5-7 in his first 9 games. My expectation for European prospects coming over to North America is usually that they have a slow first half in the AHL and ramp up from there, so Groshev performing this well already certainly bodes well. He’s a player who, athletically, has the tools to be a NHL player and he’s been above expectations since jumping the pond, IMO.
