"Score if you can. Survive if Ouellette you."

BNG-1
SYR-2

Martin Ouellette had a wildly successful first start for the Crunch, stopping 19 of 20 shots for the win in a bit of a goaltending duel.

First Period
1:24 SYR Barre-Boulet (20), (Andreoff, Volkov)
19:44 SYR Gaunce (7), (Conacher, Foote)

Second Period
9:49 BNG Quenneville (10), (Kapla, Tangradi)(PP)

Third Period
NO SCORING

Alexander Volkov, Ouellette, and Cal Foote were the game's three stars. Ouellette's performance provided welcome relief for Eddie Pasquale, who has shouldered an incredibly heavy load with Connor Ingram out injured.

Syracuse inches to within two points of the top spot in the North Division with a game in hand on Rochester.

Alexander Volkov and Nolan Valleau were the game's first and third stars.

Syracuse built a nice three goal lead early in the Second Period only to surrender that lead entirely by early in the Third Period. It took a key goal by Volkov to help the Crunch get this one across the finish line. It was vital for a team that's been struggling a bit lately with a slightly sub-.500 record in their last ten games. Part of the issue has been the injury absence of Connor Ingram, who reportedly is close to returning, which has put an unsustainable workload on Eddie Pasquale over the past few weeks. Ingram's return could be a needed shot in the arm for Syracuse whenever it happens. The team remains three points out of the top spot in the North Division with one game in hand on Rochester and six in hand on Utica.

BRI-1
SYR-3

First Period

4:40 SYR Volkov (8), (unassisted)

Third Period
6:55 SYR Verhaeghe (14), (Barre-Boulet)
9:18 BRI Koivula (11), (Wotherspoon)

Alex Barre-Boulet, Carter Verhaeghe, and Alexander Volkov were the game's three stars. Coincidentally, three players very much in line for cups of coffee in the NHL in the second half as the Lightning may want to diagnose just how much NHL-ready depth they might have available down in Syracuse.
