    The Syracuse Crunch and Utica Comets could see a lot more of each other when the postseason starts in two weeks.

    Erik Condra scored the lone goal and Eddie Pasquale made 26 saves for the shutout, as the Crunch topped the Comets, 1-0, in what could be a preview of the first round of the playoffs at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    Syracuse is No. 2 in the North Division, while Utica is battling for the No. 3 spot with Rochester.

    “It’s a playoff game, and they’re probably going to be our first round matchup,” Pasquale said. “It seems like every time we play them it’s a low scoring game with a lot of penalties, a lot of extra stuff after the whistle. It’s that playoff environment and that’s the way it is.”

    Shootout
    SYR- Stephens, Verhaeghe
    BNG- Pietila, McLeod, Walman

    Cal Foote was the game's second star after scoring on the very first shot of his pro career. Efficient.

    Toronto clinched the North Division and the best record in the AHL tonight with the outcomes of the various games of the night. Syracuse therefore will finish second in the North Division.

    Checkers put abrupt end to Crunch win streak.

    CHA-4
    SYR-1

    Connor Ingram allowed 3 goals on 29 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    7:56 CHA Carrick (9), (Poturalski, McKegg)

    Second Period
    13:08 CHA McKegg (12), (Poturalski, Saarela)

    Third Period
    1:39 CHA McKegg (13), (Saarela, Poturalski)
    6:23 SYR Archambault (12), (Condra, Peca)(PP)
    18:37 CHA Saarela (24), (unassisted)(EN)

    Ingram was the game's third star despite being victimized for 2 goals and 1 assist by ex-Lightning legend Greg McKegg. The betrayal cuts deep.

    The Crunch are now off until Friday, when I suspect the game will be a-Foote in Bingo against the Devils.

    The Syracuse Crunch couldn’t overcome their slow start.

    The Checkers controlled play throughout most of the first period and the Crunch trailed by two heading into the final frame. Syracuse rallied in the third, but Charlotte held on for a 4-1 victory at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    The loss snaps the Crunch’s seven game win streak.

    “It’s two teams that are playing playoff style hockey right now,” Crunch captain Erik Condra said. “They gave us a little bit of a wake-up (call) in the first and second period with their speed, and we came out and it was too little, too late in the end.”

    Alexander's greatness puts red hot Crunch over Belleville.

    BEL-1
    SYR-4

    Eddie Pasquale allowed 1 goal on 28 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    3:19 BEL Leier (2), (Paul)
    5:57 SYR Volkov (20), (Dumont, Gallant)

    Second Period
    10:08 SYR Volkov (21), (Joseph, Thomas)

    Third Period
    3:16 SYR Joseph (15), (Dumont)
    16:12 SYR Lynch (14), (Lipanov, Verhaeghe)

    Alexander Volkov, Pasquale, and Gabriel Dumont were the game's three stars. Volkov becomes the first Crunch player to clear 20 goals this season, which is quite the rookie campaign for a 2nd round pick who didn't have a huge body of work coming into this season. He's definitely justified the love of the Lightning scouts.

    Syracuse is 8-0-0-1 in their last nine games and, oh by the way, the game's about to be a-Foote.

    The Syracuse Crunch continue to roll down the homestretch.

    Alexander Volkov scored two of the Crunch’s four unanswered goals, as Syracuse beat the Belleville Senators, 4-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    Syracuse has won seven straight and has points in 16 of its last 17 games.

    “Especially this time of the year heading into the playoffs, you want to get on a roll,” Crunch forward Kevin Lynch said. “It’s easy for teams who are doing as well as we are to take their foot off the gas a little bit. I think (Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx) does a great job keeping us humble and not complacent.”

    Red hot Crunch throttle Bingo.

    First Period
    6:47 SYR Verhaeghe (14), (Cernak, Archambault)(PP)
    9:28 SYR Archambault (11), (Lynch, Joseph)
    19:59 SYR Verhaeghe (15), (Dumont, Joseph)(PP)

    Carter Verhaeghe, Matieu Joseph, and Kevin Lynch were the game's three stars. The game also featured the first point of Alexey Lipanov's AHL career with his helper on a Lynch goal.

    The Syracuse Crunch were opportunistic early.

    The Crunch netted three goals in the first period and cruised to a 5-1 win over the Binghamton Devils at the Onondaga County War Memorial Wednesday. Syracuse has won six straight and has points in 15 of the last 16 games.

    “We had a very slow start in the first period, but we were very opportunistic,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “(Goalie) Connor Ingram was obviously very ready to play. He had to make some stops early in the game. … We did some good things, but I don’t think we were consistent enough.”

    For the Crunch and Comets, it felt like the playoffs came early.

    The two teams battled for 50 scoreless minutes before Mitchell Stephens crashed the net to put Syracuse on the board, as the Crunch topped the Utica Comets, 2-0, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    Syracuse has won five straight games, and has points in 13 of its last 14 contests.

    “The way that this series has been against Utica throughout the year, it’s becoming more and more like playoff hockey. Tonight was a classic example of playoff hockey,” Stephens said. “It was 0-0 going into the third. For us to bear down and come away with that win. … It goes to show we’re working for 60 minutes.”
