    Shootout
    SYR- Conacher
    LAV- Holland, Froese

    Mathieu Joseph was the game's third star. His 2 goals and 1 assist were matched by fellow prospect Ben Thomas.

    Syracuse is only 5 points back of division leading Toronto, so it's not as if the hill to climb is insurmountable. But, the Crunch need to start putting together some wins pretty soon here. Close isn't enough after a subpar first 10 games of the year.

    Cory Conacher was the game's second star.

    Syracuse remains in the North Division basement. There's time to get the ship righted, but the team needs to start collecting some wins over the next 10 games or so to get themselves on better footing.

    Alexander Volkov received the drop pass and quickly fired it from the top of the right wing circle past Garrett Sparks.

    The rookie’s first professional goal brought the Crunch to within one midway through the second period but the Marlies goalie finished with 29 saves, as Syracuse was topped by Toronto, 4-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “I scored my first goal, but I’m not happy because my team lost the game,” Volkov said. “I scored a goal, but it’s a bonus for me.”

    Young Crunch's growing pains continue.

    TOR-4
    SYR-2

    Connor Ingram allowed 2 goals on 5 shots before giving way to veteran Michael Leighton who allowed 1 goal on 19 shots for the dreaded backdoor loss.

    First Period
    0:48 SYR Stephens (2), (Yan, Cernak)
    4:21 TOR Aaltonen (1), (unassisted)
    10:27 TOR Greening (2), (Dermott, Liljegren)

    Second Period
    3:28 TOR Greening (3), (Mueller, Timashov)
    8:57 SYR Volkov (1), (Erne)

    Third Period
    17:26 TOR Johnsson (3), (Smith, Rosen)

    Alexander Volkov was the game's second star after scoring his first pro goal.

    Maybe it shouldn't be surprising the Crunch have struggled to produce wins with the amount of roster turnover that happened over the offseason and the number of veterans that have been replaced by rookie pros. That doesn't make it sting any less, though.

    Crunch finally break through with a big win.

    SPR-1
    SYR-4

    Connor Ingram allowed 1 goal on 23 shots for the victory. He played well in relief against the Devils and followed it up with another solid effort.

    1st
    17:45 SYR McGinn (2), (Conacher, Lynch)

    Second Period
    14:44 SYR Akeson (1), (Erne)

    Third Period
    3:19 SYR Bournival (2), (Erne, Masin)
    4:42 SPR Valk (1), (Hawryluk, Wittchow)(PP)
    19:57 SYR Bournival (3), (Lynch, Cirelli)(EN)

    Ingram, Jason Akeson, and Adam Erne were the game's three stars.

    After a healthy dose of one goal losses, the Crunch finally picked themselves off the mat against the 0-6-0 Thunderbirds. Is the win impressive given the quality of opponent? Who cares. It was necessary, and the team got it.

    Syracuse Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx believes his team took a big step forward.

    The Crunch created significantly more scoring chances and held the Thunderbirds off the board until the third period, as Syracuse beat winless Springfield 4-1 at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “I thought tonight was pretty good. We were a second effort hockey club,” Groulx said. “Many blocked shots by many different players. They’re driving the net. That demands a second effort. I thought we played well in the three zones and we moved the puck quick.

    “They had a push late in the game, but overall I thought we controlled that game pretty well.”

    The struggle continues.

    BNG-3
    SYR-2

    Michael Leighton allowed 2 goals on 2 shots before being lifted quickly in the First Period. Connor Ingram allowed 1 goal on 20 shots for the injustice of the backdoor loss.

    First Period
    0:11 BNG Quenneville (4), (Bastian, Strait)
    3:57 BNG Speers (1), (Pietila, Rooney)
    11:49 BNG Lappin (4), (Erixon, Kapla)

    Second Period
    11:54 SYR Bournival (1), (unassisted)(SH)
    13:26 SYR Cernak (2), (Bodie)(SH)

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Michael Bournival and Erik Cernak were the game's second and third stars.

    Syracuse sits alone in the North Division basement at a dismal 1-4-1-0. That said, they've only really been run off the rink in one of the losses (against the Penguins) and there's probably an alternate dimension where Syracuse could just as easily be 4-1-1-0. There's no such thing as moral victories, though, and Syracuse needs to figure out how to get on the right side of these 1 goal decisions quickly.

    The Syracuse Crunch’s penalty kill provided a spark in the second period, but it wasn’t enough to overcome a rough start.

    Syracuse allowed goals on the first two shots and trailed 3-0 after the first 20 minutes. The Crunch netted a pair of shorthanded markers on the same penalty, but their rally came up short in a 3-2 loss to the Binghamton Devils at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “Obviously, when you have a rough start like we did tonight, you only can get better,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “When you’re down 3-0 after the first period, you have a choice. You battle back or you quit. I like the fact tonight we battled back. We had our chances. We manufactured more chances on the power play. Their goalie was good and they blocked shots.

    “Other than the first period, I thought we got much better. It’s a work in progress I guess.”
