Crunch's Walcott 'Making Friends' With Abrasive Style


By Jeremy Houghtaling

Daniel Walcott realizes that he’s at his best when he’s abrasive.

The Syracuse Crunch forward prides himself on his play on the forecheck and ability to rile up opponents. Walcott can also chuck some fists when the time comes.

Since moving from defense to forward full-time earlier this season, Walcott has focused on bringing energy to the Crunch lineup.

“I’m an energetic guy, so if I can spread the wealthy with my energy, I’ll do that,” Walcott said. “Also, I want to create plays and play the right way defensively. If I’m on the ice, I can’t get scored on. That’s been a focus for me — to bring energy and be physically, but be sound defensively.”

AHL Game Night: 2-24-18 Penguins at Crunch

Streaking Crunch now await outcome of NHL trade deadline.

WBS-1
SYR-3

Connor Ingram allowed 1 goal on 27 shots for an impressive win. He hit a little rocky patch for a while, but he now has a sub-2.50 GAA and his save percentage is up to .906 for the campaign.

First Period
4:42 WBS Tiffels (2), (Quinney)

Second Period
1:35 SYR Dumont (1), (Bournival)(SH)

Third Period
6:02 SYR Volkov (16), (Walcott, Peca)
8:46 SYR Cirelli (12), (Joseph, Dumont)(PP)

Gabriel Dumont, Alexander Volkov, and Daniel Walcott were the game's three stars. That's right folks, Gabriel Dumont's triumphant return to the scoresheet for Syracuse has happened.

Syracuse opens up a little three point lead for second place in the North Division and are eight points back of first place Toronto. However, things get a little interesting now with the NHL trade deadline coming up on Monday. The prospect rich Lightning are in on some potentially big deals to improve the big club that would more likely subtract from Syracuse than add to its roster.

NHL Preseason Game Night: 9-22-17 Predators at Lightning

First string Lightning (closer to, at least) dismantle Preds.

NSH-1
TB-3

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed just 1 goal on 30 shots for the victory. He looked pretty locked in staring down multiple breakaways and keeping a clean sheet until a garbage goal late in the Third Period spoiled his shutout bid.

First Period
0:33 TB Hedman, (Stamkos, Kucherov)
15:37 TB Kucherov, (Stamkos, Palat)(PP)

Second Period
NO SCORING

Third Period
3:26 TB Gourde, (Callahan, Killorn)
14:05 NSH Watson, (Petterson, Girard)

Vasilevskiy, Steven Stamkos, and Matthew Peca were the game's three stars.

Playing against a B-team Nashville roster, I'm not going to celebrate this game too heartily, but I think it had the fingerprints of a lot of the things I feel give the Lightning the potential to have a very good season this year. Vasilevskiy's going to have a monster year, in my opinion, now that he enters as the clear number one netminder. Hedman and Kucherov continue to grow as team leaders as they did late in the last campaign. Steven Stamkos looks good in his return from injury and I like the initial form of the top two lines in appears Jon Cooper is forming. The only thing this game was missing was a scoring outburst by Brayden Point, but I expect that'll come in time, too. Long story short: I'm probably more bullish on the Lightning's outlook going into this season than a lot of my Bolt Prospects colleagues and tonight's performance added a little touch of validation to that opinion (as much as a preseason win can, I suppose).

Mathieu Joseph was -1 with 2 penalty minutes and 1 shot in 11:33.

Dennis Yan was -2 with 2 penalty minutes, 2 shots, and 1 hit in 8:02.

Ben Thomas had 4 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 3 hits in 20:55.

Peca was -1 with 2 shots and 1 hit in 13:15. He was also a gaudy 90% on 10 draws.

Matthew Spencer had 1 shot in 18:06.

Daniel Walcott had 4 hits in 14:13.

Erik Cernak was +1 with 3 shots, 2 hits, and 2 blocked shots in 16:16. He's shown well in camp and his exhibition game performances and appears to be moving up the organizational depth chart at right D.

Mikhail Sergachev had 2 shots, 1 hit, and 2 blocked shots in 20:03. Eat those minutes young fella. Eat those minutes.
