    Crunch inexperience exposed.

    CHA-4
    SYR-1

    Connor Ingram allowed 4 goals on 33 shots for the loss. Actually played better than the stat line indicates, including stopping a penalty shot.

    First Period
    4:46 CHA Gauthier (1), (Maenalanen)
    17:57 CHA Kuokkanen (3), (Poturalski, Carrick)(PP)

    Second Period
    11:10 CHA Bishop (1), (Saarela, McKeown)(PP)
    16:25 CHA Brown (1), (Bishop, Cajkovsky)(SH)

    Third Period
    4:42 SYR Sosunov (1), (Tammela, Katchouk)

    Ingram was the game's third star.

    Syracuse took about a month last season to work out the kinks with a young lineup, and we may see a bit of that to start this season, too. It was a pretty ugly, mistake-pocked game for Syracuse tonight and Ben Groulx will have plenty to work on correcting. Silver lining: big Oleg Sosunov did pot his first pro goal.

    Rochester shows urgency in doubling up Syracuse.

    SYR-3
    ROC-6

    Eddie Pasquale allowed 6 goals on 33 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    13:02 ROC O'Regan (1), (Nylander, Redmond)(PP)
    19:59 SYR Barre-Boulet (2), (Cernak, Dumont)(PP)

    Second Period
    7:05 ROC Smith (2), (Criscuolo)(SH)
    9:42 ROC Criscuolo (1), (Smith)
    12:06 ROC Redmond (1), (Pilut, Olofsson)(PP)
    12:52 SYR Tammela (1), (Brassart)

    Third Period
    2:55 ROC Pilut (2), (Olofsson, Redmond)(PP)
    7:18 ROC Olofsson (1), (O'Regan, Dougherty)
    19:44 SYR Yan (1), (Volkov, Masin)

    It's probably not crazy to suggest that Rochester needed this game more given they were trying to avoid an 0-3 start to their campaign. Syracuse gave themselves a chance by getting it within a two goal deficit at the Second Intermission, but another power play goal by Rochester put the game into garbage time pretty quickly.

    So far so good with Alex Barre-Boulet, at least.

    14:02 SYR Raddysh (1), (Andreoff, Colton)

    Third Period
    5:26 SYR Barre-Boulet (1), (Foote, Dumont)(PP)

    Alex Barre-Boulet was the game's first star. He and Taylor Raddysh celebrated their first pro goals tonight while fellow rookie Ross Colton notched his first pro point.

    Quality outcome against a really quality opponent to open the campaign.

    The Syracuse Crunch couldn’t dig out of the hole they were in.

    The Toronto Marlies scored two power play goals in the first period, and despite the Crunch climbing back to within a goal in the third, held on for a 2-1 victory at in Game 4 of the North Division Finals at the Onondaga County War Memorial Tuesday. With the win, the Marlies sweep the series 4-0.

    Syracuse’s veterans addressed the rest of the team after the game.

    “I think the thing that we stressed a lot was that we left it all out there. There was no quit in anybody,” Crunch forward Matthew Peca said. “It’s easy to fold when you’re down 0-3. There was no sign of quit in the dressing room with a short lineup and guys were laying out blocking shots. You could just tell that everybody was doing everything for the guy next to them. That’s the biggest team-thing a guy can do, and we saw a lot of it all year and in the playoffs.”

    Third Period

    Ingram was the game's second star.

    This was a really strong season for Syracuse in terms of both overall performance and the ability to develop a very young group of players in the process. It's a shame that may end up being tempered by the embarassment of being swept by a very deep and powerful Toronto Marlies club. Looking forward to next year the club will get yet another influx of high caliber youth like Boris Katchouk and Alex Barre-Boulet, among others. So, the success is sustainable, but Toronto remains a problematic adversary in the division to overcome.

    After the final horn, the Syracuse Crunch were ready to put the game behind them.

    The Crunch didn’t score on an early power play and went into a tailspin, as Syracuse lost to the Toronto Marlies, 7-1, in Game 3 of the North Division Finals Sunday.

    Toronto, who topped Syracuse in double overtime Saturday, leads the series 3-0 and will go for the sweep on Tuesday.

    “You’ve got to turn the page,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “It’s one of our worst games of the year. But again, you’ve got to give credit to Toronto. They won a big game last night and carried the momentum over. They jumped on us and we weren’t ready to play.”

    18:20 TOR Moore (3), (Mueller)

    Hard to believe about 24 hours ago the Crunch were a bounce away from making this a very competitive series. Clearly the sting of that Double OT loss carried over to Game Three and now the Crunch are in a seemingly impossible 3-0 hole.

    Crunch leave Toronto empty handed after double OT thriller.

    Eastern Conference Semifinals

    SYR-1
    TOR-2 (2OT)

    Toronto Leads the Series 2-0

    Connor Ingram shined allowing 2 goals on 57 shots for the OT loss. He's exceeded expectations as a rookie and continues to make you think his ceiling could be higher than originally thought.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    9:25 SYR Peca (3), (Stephens)

    Third Period
    6:52 TOR Marchment (2), (Moore)

    Overtime
    NO SCORING

    Double Overtime
    15:10 TOR Gauthier (1), (Engvall)

    Ingram was the game's second star.

    That's a tough one to take, given the Crunch were just a bounce away from putting themselves in a really good position in this series. As it is, there's no need to panic. It's not a series until someone drops a home game. But, it does put a lot of pressure on Syracuse to win the next two tilts at home to get the series back to level.

    Crunch drop opening round of heavyweight matchup with Toronto.

    Eastern Conference Semifinals

    SYR-4
    TOR-6

    Toronto Leads the Series 1-0

    Eddie Pasquale allowed 5 goals on 20 shots for the loss. Yuck. That stat line may beg for a goaltending change for Game Two.

    First Period
    8:33 TOR Brooks (1), (Marincin, Marchment)
    18:34 SYR Joseph (3), (unassisted)(SH)
    19:16 TOR Timashov (4), (Moore, Mueller)(PP)

    Second Period
    10:55 SYR Verhaeghe (1), (Stephens)(PP)
    15:15 TOR Dermott (1), (Johnsson, Grundstrom)(PP)

    Third Period
    7:56 TOR Marchment (1), (Gauthier, Marincin)
    8:53 SYR Lynch (1), (Condra, Volkov)
    12:46 TOR Engvall (3), (Moore, Brooks)
    18:55 SYR Lynch (2), (Joseph, Verhaeghe)
    19:23 TOR Smith (1), (Gauthier)(EN)

    Mathieu Joseph was the game's third star.

    Toronto draws first blood in what may be, arguably, the de fact Eastern Conference Final in a clash of two AHL titans. But the Crunch should not despair. They can still accomplish what they came to Toronto to do and they actually outshot the high-powered Marlies by a comfortable 32-21 margin (albeit score effects in the Third Period were heavily involved). This feels like a long series going into it, and each team's going to have to weather some haymakers if they want the prize.

    Bye, Rochester.

    Eastern Conference Quarterfinals

    SYR-6
    RCH-3

    Syracuse Wins the Series 3-0

    Connor Ingram allowed 3 goals on 36 shots for the victory in his playoff debut.

    First Period
    3:25 RCH Redmond (2), (Porter, Blackwell (2) (PP)
    19:16 SYR Peca (2), (Masin, Joseph)

    Second Period
    7:48 RCH Bailey (2), (Malone)
    8:17 SYR Foote (1), (Verhaeghe, Joseph)
    8:36 SYR Archambault (2), (Stephens, Peca)
    10:49 SYR Stephens (1), (Dumont, Verhaeghe)

    Third Period
    6:05 SYR Joseph (2), (Volkov, Dumont)(PP)
    13:50 RCH O'Regan (1), (Porter, Griffith)
    19:08 SYR Volkov (3), (Peca, Condra)(EN)

    Mitchell Stephens, Matthew Peca, and Gabriel Dumont were the game's three stars.

    Well that was an interesting series considering the bluster from the Americans coming into the series based on their late regular season play against the Crunch. One of these teams clearly had an extra gear or two and the other was Rochester.
