    There was a big hit, a fight and two goals — and that was just the first 3:34.

    Mike Halmo’s bout and goals by Yanni Gourde and Cameron Darcy got the Crunch out to a fast start against the Americans, as Syracuse defeated Rochester, 5-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “I thought we were ready for this game tonight,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “Obviously, Mike Halmo set the tone right away, right off the bat. He’s a competitor and he’s a guy that when he gets involved physically, he’s at his best.”

    The Syracuse Crunch squandered a golden opportunity.

    With the score tied in the final two minutes against the Senators, the Crunch were awarded a power play after a tripping call. Instead of the Crunch completing a comeback, Max McCormick converted on a 2-on-1 shorthanded chance to lift Binghamton to a 3-2 win over Syracuse at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “It’s tough. There’s only 1:40 left and we’re going on the power play to win it, not to lose it,” Crunch alternate captain Matt Taormina said. “It takes a little bit of a bounce over (Matthew) Peca’s stick, and we don’t take guys going back to the net or anything, and that kind of takes the wind out of the sails a little bit.”

    Crunch can't parlay the false hope goal into real hope.

    SYR-2
    TOR-3

    Adam Wilcox allowed 3 goals on 28 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    9:44 TOR Froese (18), (Griffith, Rychel)(PP)

    Second Period
    19:23 TOR Froese (19), (Campbell, Johnsson)

    Third Period
    6:42 TOR Rychel (9), (Dermott, Froese)(PP)
    13:10 SYR Richard (12), (Conacher, Condra)(PP)
    14:52 SYR Comrie (6), (Taormina, Conacher)

    Tanner Richard was the game's third star.

    A three goal deficit in the Third Period of a pro hockey is just a death sentence 99% of the time. You'll see teams get that "false hope goal" to pull within one, but they rarely have enough gas to get the equalizer. It happened again to Syracuse today. They managed to get the false hope goal with a good 5+ minutes to go, but just couldn't find the equalizer. That's why you need timely goaltending and goal scoring to stay within 2 and give yourself a chance, because it's doom if you get down by 3.

    Crunch hold of a furious rally... barely.

    SYR-4
    SPR-3

    Adam Wilcox allowed 3 goals on 32 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    14:37 SYR Conacher (7), (Vermin, Gourde)

    Second Period
    11:27 SYR Brodeur (2), (Morin, Ikonen)

    15:08 SPR Rau (5), (Weegar, Berra)(PP)
    18:28 SPR Sutter (4), (Acolatse, Rau)

    Henri Ikonen and Cory Conacher were the game's first and second stars. Ikonen? I'll take unlikely heroes for $500, Alex.

    When you have a 4-0 lead in the Third Period, you really shouldn't allow the opposition to get as close as the old false hope goal. Fortunately, with the win, Syracuse maintained position 1 point back of Albany for the division lead with a game in hand on the Devils.
