    Before the shootout began, Syracuse Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx looked down his bench.

    “My plan was to send him first. We asked him how good he was in the shootout and he went like ‘uhhh’ so waited a little bit,” Groulx said with a laugh. “Finally, he ended up having the winner.”

    “I’m more of a clean-up guy, not a lead-off guy,” Loney said with a smile.

    The Syracuse Crunch were able to overcome some adversity to remain on a hot streak.

    Despite getting back into town late after a trip from Toronto and at one point being down to 10 forwards, the Syracuse Crunch held the Laval Rocket off the scoreboard until the final four minutes and hung on to win their fifth straight game, 2-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “Tonight was a tricky game for us,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “We came back very late from Toronto, and it’s never easy when you travel during the night. We came in at 3 or 3:30 a.m., so the following game is always a tough one. We saw it right away that we didn’t have our best legs tonight. … It was a tricky game, but I thought we did enough to win. We hung in there at the end. Our goalie was solid again. It’s a good win for us.”

We had some big kills and were able to pull it off.”
