    After a scoreless first period, things started to click for the Syracuse Crunch offense.

    The Crunch scored three times in the middle frame — including a pair from players not necessarily known for their scoring prowess — as the Crunch beat the Rochester Americans, 4-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “We started connecting,” Crunch forward Daniel Walcott said. “We got a good bounce off (Mathieu Joseph’s) leg and the floodgates opened. We just kept shooting on him. We knew he left a lot of rebounds, we just had to capitalize. We put pucks on net and we got some goals.”

    The Syracuse Crunch had a sizable advantage in shots, but the Hershey Bears were more opportunistic.

    The Crunch led 30-18 in shots on goal but the Bears’ Aaron Ness broke the tie with 6:38 remaining, as Syracuse was edged by Hershey, 2-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday. The loss snaps the Crunch’s seven game point streak.

    “It was a tough game to lose tonight,” Syracuse forward Mathieu Joseph said. “We outshot them and had a lot of scoring chances. A couple missed scoring chances on my part and a couple guys on the team. We weren’t opportunistic enough. We’ve got to find a way to win like that. It’s a tough loss.”

    Evidently it was 80's Night in Syracuse, too.

    LAV-5
    SYR-4 (OT)

    Eddie Pasquale allowed 5 goals on 22 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    4:28 LAV Terry (23), (McCarron, Boucher)
    5:02 SYR Dumont (2), (Bournival)(SH)
    9:07 SYR Condra (8), (Tammela, Verhaeghe)

    Second Period
    4:15 SYR Yan (11), (Bodie, Stephens)(PP)
    11:22 LAV Boucher (9), (Waked, Gelinas)(PP)
    16:15 SYR Bodie (5), (Yan, Verhaeghe)(PP)

    Third Period
    0:12 LAV Waked (5), (Parisi, Gelinas)(PP)
    15:04 LAV Rychel (12), (Terry, Parisi)

    Overtime
    4:28 LAV Gregoire (9), (Corrin, Rychel)

    Gabriel Dumont and Dennis Yan were the game's second and third stars. Dennis Yan: all he does is score.

    On the opposite end of the spectrum from the big club's matinee tilt, Syracuse had to face the disappointment of seeing a two goal Third Period lead slip away into an Overtime loss.

    With Toronto falling to Rochester, the Crunch did narrow the Marlies lead in the North Division to just four points with Toronto holding a pair of games in hand. So, there's a silver lining.

    One night after scoring three unanswered goals to steal a win, the tables were turned on the Syracuse Crunch.

    The Laval Rocket cut the Crunch lead to one in the first minute of the third period, evened the score with five minutes left in regulation and netted the game-winner with 32 seconds left in overtime at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday. The 5-4 loss snaps Syracuse’s six game win streak.

    “I thought they were more opportunistic than us,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “We made some bad plays in our own end and they took advantage of it.”

    After being held silent for more than 50 minutes, Syracuse’s offense made a bold statement.

    The Crunch wiped away the Devils’ lead by scoring three times in a span of 2:53, as Syracuse rallied past Binghamton, 3-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    The Crunch has now won six straight games.

    “I don’t think that was our best effort, but overall, you’ll be happy with the win and the comeback we made showed character,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “I thought we were very opportunistic in the third.”

    Streaking Crunch now await outcome of NHL trade deadline.

    WBS-1
    SYR-3

    Connor Ingram allowed 1 goal on 27 shots for an impressive win. He hit a little rocky patch for a while, but he now has a sub-2.50 GAA and his save percentage is up to .906 for the campaign.

    First Period
    4:42 WBS Tiffels (2), (Quinney)

    Second Period
    1:35 SYR Dumont (1), (Bournival)(SH)

    8:46 SYR Cirelli (12), (Joseph, Dumont)(PP)

    Gabriel Dumont, Alexander Volkov, and Daniel Walcott were the game's three stars. That's right folks, Gabriel Dumont's triumphant return to the scoresheet for Syracuse has happened.

    Syracuse opens up a little three point lead for second place in the North Division and are eight points back of first place Toronto. However, things get a little interesting now with the NHL trade deadline coming up on Monday. The prospect rich Lightning are in on some potentially big deals to improve the big club that would more likely subtract from Syracuse than add to its roster.

    The Crunch had a feeling they would break through.

    Despite outshooting Wilkes-Barre/Scranton 17-4 in the first period, the Syracuse went into the intermission with a one goal deficit. The Crunch scored three unanswered goals to beat the Penguins, 3-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday to extend their win streak to four games.

    “We were going. I thought we played really good in the first,” Syracuse forward Gabriel Dumont said. “I think it was pretty much a question of time for when things would turn for us.”
