    Dennis Yan saw the opportunity and took advantage,

    The Crunch rookie gathered the puck behind his own net, rushed up the right side of the ice, charged past the last defender and beat Americans goalie Linus Ullmark blocker side to lift Syracuse to a 6-5 overtime win over Rochester in a back-and-forth battle at the Onondaga County War Memorial Wednesday.

    “I didn’t plan to go all the way to the net, but once I took the puck I saw a huge space and I put the jets on,” Yan said. “I had space there and tried to get to the net as fast as I could.”

    Syracuse finally gets a break through.

    RCH-5
    SYR-6 (OT)

    Louis Domingue allowed 5 goals on 35 shots, but got a drink from the cool, refreshing fountain of goal support.

    First Period
    1:18 SYR Volkov (3), (Peca, McNeill)
    14:34 RCH Redmond (2), (Baptiste, Blackwell)
    17:00 RCH Porter (5), (Moses, Rodrigues)(PP)

    Second Period
    7:39 SYR Peca (1), (unassisted)(SH)
    11:10 RCH Malone (1), (unassisted)
    14:43 SYR McBain (2), (Conacher, Walcott)
    18:16 SYR Masin (3), (Peca, Bournival)(SH)
    19:50 RCH Baptiste (4), (Percy, Fasching)(PP)

    Third Period
    10:14 SYR Bodie (1), (Lynch)
    13:11 RCH Allen (1), (Blackwell, Smith)

    Overtime
    1:48 SYR Yan (3), (Masin, Cirelli)

    Dennis Yan and Matthew Peca were the game's first and second stars. Yan's quietly got points in 4 of his last 5 outings and has had decent production for his rookie campaign.

    This team has been so painfully close so many times this season that you just have to hope getting an emotional OT win is the elixir that slingshots them back into the playoff hunt.

    Crunch drop another close heartbreaker.

    SYR-1

    First Period

    10:02 SYR Lynch (3), (Conacher)(SH)

    Breakthrough for Crunch remains close, but out of reach.

    SYR-1
    TOR-2

    Louis Domingue allowed 2 goals on 27 shots for the loss. It was a quality start in his Syracuse debut, at least.

    First Period
    3:05 SYR Erne (1), (Thomas, Yan)(PP)
    13:54 TOR Johnsson (7), (Mueller, Kapanen)(PP)
    18:56 TOR Kapanen (5), (Rosen, Johnsson)(PP)

    Dennis Yan was the game's third star.

    Good to see Adam Erne rebound with a goal after his... inartful... breakaway attempt last time out made Sportcenter bloopers.

    Syracuse outshot the division-leading Marlies, but couldn't crack Garret Sparks for the equalizer. The team remains tantalizingly close to a breakthrough but is still struggling to figure out how to finish off and win games.

    Inspired Crunch effort fades into Third Period disappointment.

    SYR-2
    HER-4

    Connor Ingram allowed 3 goals on 25 shots for the loss. Ingram was the lone goaltender dressed for the Crunch as they await the newly acquired Louis Domingue.

    19:51 HER Johansen (3), (unassisted)(EN)

    With the departure of Leighton and McGinn in the Domingue deal and the release of Akeson from his PTO, Syracuse has opted to get even younger as they attempt to find a winning formula to get out of the cellar this season. If you're looking for a silver lining from tonight, all Crunch scoring was contributed by prospects. Cold comfort, but that's something.

    Crunch have, hopefully, a breakthrough victory.

    CHA-3
    SYR-5

    Michael Leighton allowed 3 goals on 24 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    9:14 SYR McBain (1), (Verhaeghe, Yan)

    Third Period
    18:19 SYR Condra (2), (Cirelli, McBain)

    Jamie McBain, Erik Condra, and Michael Bournival were the game's three stars.

    After what seems like a long line of heartbreaking, close losses, the Crunch led by their veteran leaders finally managed to close the deal on a victory tonight. The team pulls to 2 games under .500 and can hopefully turn this victory into the start of a nice little winning streak that gets their campaign back on the right track.

    The Syracuse Crunch took it to the Charlotte Checkers in the first 19 minutes.

    Crunch captain Erik Condra netted a goal in his long-awaited return, Jamie McBain had a hand in three goals and the Syracuse power play converted twice. The Checkers made it close late in the second period, but the Crunch held on to win, 5-3, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “I thought we came out strong and overall, we played a very good game,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “They’re a good team. probably the best team we faced this year with Toronto. They have skill on every line. They play with a lot of poise and they make plays with the puck. It’s very impressive the way Charlotte is playing. Tonight we were a good team.”

    Mathieu Joseph was told to not worry about the statistics.

    The Syracuse rookie, who averaged more than a point per game in junior, was held to a single assist over his first nine professional games. After a meeting with Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx, Joseph recorded four points in two games against the Rocket in front of friends and family in Laval.

    Joseph is taking Groulx’s words to heart as he adapts to the pro game.

    “He told me that he wanted me to have fun on the ice,” Joseph said. “My confidence wasn’t really there and I was trying to analyze the game too much. He gave me a little bit of a boost of confidence.”

    Crunch see another one slip away.

    SYR-2
    LAV-5

    Connor Ingram allowed 4 goals on 24 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    7:56 LAV Deslauriers (3), (Petti)
    10:08 SYR Verhaeghe (1), (Joseph)
    12:07 LAV Holland (4), (Gregoire)

    Third Period
    0:19 LAV Holland (5), (unassisted)
    5:56 SYR Conacher (6), (Verhaeghe, McBain)(PP)
    13:14 LAV Carr (7), (Holland, Froese)(PP)
    18:24 LAV Holland (6), (Lernout)(EN)

    Carter Verhaeghe was the game's third star.

    This is a young team. I'm not surprised they've taken a step back from the veteran-heavy team of a season ago. But, you'd have hoped to have seen a little more progress to this point. A .375 winning percentage is obviously well below the standard for this organization, at the moment.

    Wins still eluding Crunch.

    Shootout
    SYR- Conacher
    LAV- Holland, Froese

    Mathieu Joseph was the game's third star. His 2 goals and 1 assist were matched by fellow prospect Ben Thomas.

    Syracuse is only 5 points back of division leading Toronto, so it's not as if the hill to climb is insurmountable. But, the Crunch need to start putting together some wins pretty soon here. Close isn't enough after a subpar first 10 games of the year.
