    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.”

    Syracuse moves to 2 games under .500 with the victory. If they can get their record back to level, then the push to get back into playoff contention can begin.

    The Syracuse Crunch surged out of the gate, but needed their penalty kill to bail them out late in the game.

    The Crunch jumped out to a three-goal lead in the first period, but the Penguins cut their deficit to one in the third period. Syracuse killed off a five minute major penalty in the closing minutes and added a pair of empty-netters in a 5-2 win over Wilkes-Barre/Scranton at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    The loss snaps an 12-game point streak for the league-leading Penguins.

    “Any time you can score early in a period, especially two or three in the same period, that’s going to build momentum for your hockey team,” Crunch defenseman Jamie McBain said. “They’re a great team and we knew they were going to make a push for it and not make it easy on us. We had some big kills and were able to pull it off.”

    Shorthanded Syracuse starts streaking.


    Louis Domingue allowed 2 goals on 25 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    1:51 SYR Volkov (4), (Peca, Erne)
    8:39 SYR McBain (3), (Peca)(PP)
    9:36 SYR Lynch (4), (McBain, Bournival)

    Second Period
    9:19 WBS Smith (3), (Czuczman, DiPauli)(PP)

    Third Period
    13:00 WBS Simon (3), (Smith)
    18:54 SYR Verhaeghe (2), (Joseph, McNeill)(EN)
    19:31 SYR Bournival (6), (unassisted)(EN)(SH)

    Kevin Lynch, Domingue, and Alexei Volkov were the game's three stars.

    Between callups, injuries, and other recent transactions, Syracuse had to cobble together lines with only 10 natural forwards. Didn't matter. Fresh off an emotional Overtime victory the Crunch manufactured a big win over a perennial Eastern Conference power. The back-to-back wins have lifted Syracuse out of the North Division basement. They are still 3 games under .500 on the campaign, but there's suddenly a little hope the ship has been righted.

    Dennis Yan saw the opportunity and took advantage,

    The Crunch rookie gathered the puck behind his own net, rushed up the right side of the ice, charged past the last defender and beat Americans goalie Linus Ullmark blocker side to lift Syracuse to a 6-5 overtime win over Rochester in a back-and-forth battle at the Onondaga County War Memorial Wednesday.

    “I didn’t plan to go all the way to the net, but once I took the puck I saw a huge space and I put the jets on,” Yan said. “I had space there and tried to get to the net as fast as I could.”

    Syracuse finally gets a break through.

    SYR-6 (OT)

    Louis Domingue allowed 5 goals on 35 shots, but got a drink from the cool, refreshing fountain of goal support.

    First Period
    1:18 SYR Volkov (3), (Peca, McNeill)
    14:34 RCH Redmond (2), (Baptiste, Blackwell)
    17:00 RCH Porter (5), (Moses, Rodrigues)(PP)

    Second Period
    7:39 SYR Peca (1), (unassisted)(SH)
    11:10 RCH Malone (1), (unassisted)
    14:43 SYR McBain (2), (Conacher, Walcott)
    18:16 SYR Masin (3), (Peca, Bournival)(SH)
    19:50 RCH Baptiste (4), (Percy, Fasching)(PP)

    Third Period
    10:14 SYR Bodie (1), (Lynch)
    13:11 RCH Allen (1), (Blackwell, Smith)

    1:48 SYR Yan (3), (Masin, Cirelli)

    Dennis Yan and Matthew Peca were the game's first and second stars. Yan's quietly got points in 4 of his last 5 outings and has had decent production for his rookie campaign.

    This team has been so painfully close so many times this season that you just have to hope getting an emotional OT win is the elixir that slingshots them back into the playoff hunt.

    10:02 SYR Lynch (3), (Conacher)(SH)

    Breakthrough for Crunch remains close, but out of reach.


    Louis Domingue allowed 2 goals on 27 shots for the loss. It was a quality start in his Syracuse debut, at least.

    First Period
    3:05 SYR Erne (1), (Thomas, Yan)(PP)
    13:54 TOR Johnsson (7), (Mueller, Kapanen)(PP)
    18:56 TOR Kapanen (5), (Rosen, Johnsson)(PP)

    Second Period

    Third Period

    Dennis Yan was the game's third star.

    Good to see Adam Erne rebound with a goal after his... inartful... breakaway attempt last time out made Sportcenter bloopers.

    Syracuse outshot the division-leading Marlies, but couldn't crack Garret Sparks for the equalizer. The team remains tantalizingly close to a breakthrough but is still struggling to figure out how to finish off and win games.
