Alexander Volkov and Dennis Yan were the game's first and second stars after potting a pair of goals each. Just a quick reminder: All Dennis Yan Does is Score (tm).

Syracuse becomes the second team in the Eastern Conference to clinch a playoff berth. They still trail the Toronto Marlies by seven points in the race for the top spot in the North Division with Toronto holding two games in hand. But, the Crunch and their fans go to bed tonight secure in the knowledge they're in the dance and their young team is a legit threat to do damage once they get there.

Big Second Period Lifts Crunch over Americans


By Jeremy Houghtaling

After a scoreless first period, things started to click for the Syracuse Crunch offense.

The Crunch scored three times in the middle frame — including a pair from players not necessarily known for their scoring prowess — as the Crunch beat the Rochester Americans, 4-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

“We started connecting,” Crunch forward Daniel Walcott said. “We got a good bounce off (Mathieu Joseph’s) leg and the floodgates opened. We just kept shooting on him. We knew he left a lot of rebounds, we just had to capitalize. We put pucks on net and we got some goals.”
