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

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.

Alexander Volkov, Ben Thomas, and Boris Katchouk were the game's three stars. Volkov, who was among the last cuts from the Lightning's camp, had been notably absent from the goalscoring ledger throughout the early parts of this AHL campaign. Good to see him open his 2018-2019 account tonight and good to see fellow prized prospect Boris Katchouk go get a couple of helpers to boot.

Hopefully this starts the climb back up the mountain for the Crunch. They've got at least two games in hand on the rest of the North Division, so if they can string some W's together, they can quickly climb to the middle of the divisional pack with teams like the Sens.
