    After allowing a pair of one-goal leads slip away, the Syracuse Crunch were able to pull away.

    With Gabriel Dumont leading the charge, the Crunch scored four unanswered goals over the final 40 minutes in a 6-2 victory over the Rochester Americans in Game 1 of the North Division Semifinals at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “I don’t think we played the way we wanted in the first half of this game. We played better after that,” Dumont said. “If you’re a good team, you’re going to get chances. We were lucky enough to capitalize on our power play and there was a big goal by the fourth line too.”

    Although the teams will meet in the playoffs, the Syracuse game against Rochester Saturday wasn’t much of a preview.

    Looking to rest many of their regulars since they already clinched home ice in the first round, the Crunch had a lineup with 11 players who spent time in the ECHL this season and two more who joined the team after the conclusion of their junior seasons.

    Alexander Volkov scored twice and Olivier Mantha made 39 saves in his AHL debut, but Syracuse fell to Rochester, 4-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    The North Division Semifinal between the Crunch and Americans starts in Syracuse Friday.

    “We’ll see what kind of team we’re going to have next week,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “For me, I expect our team to be ready to play next Friday.”

    Ingram defeats Americans almost single-handedly.

    SYR-1
    RCH-0

    Connor Ingram pitched a 38 save shutout for the victory, helping Syracuse overcome a staggering 38-18 shot deficit in the game. Ingram is now sporting a very stout 20-11-6 record with a 2.33 GAA, .914 save percentage, and 4 shutouts. It's a rookie campaign I dare say has exceeded expectations given the past performance of similar Lightning goaltending prospects, and points to the fact Ingram could have higher upside.

    Third Period

    Rochester looks to potentially be Syracuse's first round opponent in the playoffs, so there's positive and negative to consider in the night's victory heading into the postseason.

    With the parade to the penalty box lasting throughout most of the game, special teams play proved to be the difference.

    The Crunch allowed a pair of Devils goals on the man-advantage and didn’t convert on their nine power play opportunities until late in the third period, as Syracuse fell to Binghamton, 4-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Sunday.

    “They had six or seven power plays. We had six or maybe eight power plays,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “I think our power play was not good enough. I think our PK was OK. We can’t go into the playoffs taking five or six penalties a game, for sure.”

    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.”

    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.
