With the departure of Leighton and McGinn in the Domingue deal and the release of Akeson from his PTO, Syracuse has opted to get even younger as they attempt to find a winning formula to get out of the cellar this season. If you're looking for a silver lining from tonight, all Crunch scoring was contributed by prospects. Cold comfort, but that's something.

Lightning goalie prospect Connor Ingram and Beast goalie Andrew D'Agostini put on goaltending clinic Sunday afternoon at the Powerade Centre in Brampton. The two netminders allowed just one goal each and made a combined 82 saves en route to a shootout duel. D'Agostini, the ex-Peterborough Pete goalie and former teammate of Lightning prospects Matthew Spencer and Slater Koekkoek, turned away all 4 Adirondack shooters including Syracuse depth forwards Ty Loney and Shane Conacher. Ingram finally yielded a goal on the fourth Brampton shooter, but still earned Second Star honors for his performance. For the weekend, Ingram played a total of 185 minutes and turned away 95 of 99 shots, while backstopping the Thunder to earning 5 of the possible 6 points on the weekend. Loney and Conacher once again combined on the power play 40 seconds into the 3rd to knot the score at 1-1. Now that the weekend three-in-three is completed, it is expected that Ingram and Spencer will be recalled to Syracuse.

With only one game on the weekend docket for the Syracuse Crunch, the organization reassigned Lightning prospect goalie Connor Ingram and defenseman Matthew Spencer to the Adirondack Thunder for the weekend to get some playing time. Ingram responded with a 33 save effort, allowing just one goal on the road in Kalamazoo, earning First Star honors. Syracuse depth forward Ty Lomey earned Second Star honors with a power play goal in the third period. The Thunder draw the rematch against the K-Wings Saturday night, before a matinee Sunday in Brampton against the Beast.

Carter Verhaeghe was the game's third star.

This is a young team. I'm not surprised they've taken a step back from the veteran-heavy team of a season ago. But, you'd have hoped to have seen a little more progress to this point. A .375 winning percentage is obviously well below the standard for this organization, at the moment.

AHL Game Night: 10-27-17 Marlies at Crunch

Young Crunch's growing pains continue.

TOR-4
SYR-2

Connor Ingram allowed 2 goals on 5 shots before giving way to veteran Michael Leighton who allowed 1 goal on 19 shots for the dreaded backdoor loss.

First Period
0:48 SYR Stephens (2), (Yan, Cernak)
4:21 TOR Aaltonen (1), (unassisted)
10:27 TOR Greening (2), (Dermott, Liljegren)

8:57 SYR Volkov (1), (Erne)

Third Period
17:26 TOR Johnsson (3), (Smith, Rosen)

Alexander Volkov was the game's second star after scoring his first pro goal.

Maybe it shouldn't be surprising the Crunch have struggled to produce wins with the amount of roster turnover that happened over the offseason and the number of veterans that have been replaced by rookie pros. That doesn't make it sting any less, though.

AHL Game Night: 10-21-17 Thunderbirds at Crunch

Ingram, Jason Akeson, and Adam Erne were the game's three stars.

After a healthy dose of one goal losses, the Crunch finally picked themselves off the mat against the 0-6-0 Thunderbirds. Is the win impressive given the quality of opponent? Who cares. It was necessary, and the team got it.

BNG-3

Michael Leighton allowed 2 goals on 2 shots before being lifted quickly in the First Period. Connor Ingram allowed 1 goal on 20 shots for the injustice of the backdoor loss.

Third Period
NO SCORING

Michael Bournival and Erik Cernak were the game's second and third stars.

Syracuse sits alone in the North Division basement at a dismal 1-4-1-0. That said, they've only really been run off the rink in one of the losses (against the Penguins) and there's probably an alternate dimension where Syracuse could just as easily be 4-1-1-0. There's no such thing as moral victories, though, and Syracuse needs to figure out how to get on the right side of these 1 goal decisions quickly.
