    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.”

    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.”

    Ingram and Mitchell Stephens were the game's first and second stars. Stephens with the gritty GWG to break a 12 game goalless drought and put him just one shy of the 20 goal mark for this rookie campaign.

    Despite going up against his former team, Carter Verhaeghe tried to treat it like any other game.

    The Crunch forward netted a pair of goals against Sound Tigers goalie Kristers Gudlevskis — the player he was traded for — as Syracuse beat Bridgeport, 4-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    The Crunch have won four straight games and have a point in 12 of their last 13 games.

    “It’s good seeing a couple familiar faces out there — guys that I’ve played with and are still friends. But I think I just went into it trying to play a hockey game and treat it like any other,” said Verhaeghe, who played his former team on the road earlier this season. “It was a little different going back to Bridgeport, but it made it a little easier being at home here for sure.”
