AHL Game Night: 3-2-13 Americans at Crunch

All of a sudden, Syracuse is struggling to win close games too.

ROC-2
SYR-1 (OT)

Riku Helenius allowed 2 goals on 26 shots for the overtime loss.

First Period
RCH Mancari, (17) (McCormick, Rissmiller), 10:25 (PP)

Second Period
NO SCORING

Third Period
SYR Palat, (11) (Barberio, Gudas), 1:28 (PP)

Overtime
RCH McNabb, (5) (Mancari, Adam), 4:50 (PP)

Ondrej Palat was the game's second star. Palat has 5 goals and 13 points in his last 8 games. I believe that technically qualifies as "on fire". With Benoit Pouliot possibly hurt in today's game against Boston, I wonder if Palat might be worthy of some consideration for a cup of coffee.

Syracuse finishes their weekend tomorrow against Hershey.
