AHL Game Night: 2-22-15 Crunch at Americans

Number one, with a bullet.

SYR-4
RCH-3

Allen York stopped 26 of 29 shots for the Crunch to cap their 3 win weekend.

First Period
SYR Namestnikov, (11) (Koekkoek, Corrente), 6:14
SYR Corrente, (2) (Gourde, Mormina), 17:54

Second Period
SYR Smith, (11) (Richard, Namestnikov), 16:46
RCH Reid, (8) (Tuzzolino, Leduc), 16:57
SYR Namestnikov, (12) (Marchessault), 18:11
RCH Varone, (13) (Irwin, Burt), 19:58 (PP)

Third Period
RCH D'Amigo, (9) (Irwin, Austin), 8:33

Vladislav Namestnikov and Matthew Corrente were the game's first and second stars. They've been usual suspects of late when three stars get announced. Namestnikov now had 30 points in 31 games. The Lightning will need to make room for him up top next season, because he's wearing this level out.

When you wake up tomorrow, the Syracuse Crunch will have the most points in the AHL. Nice. If they had a functional power play, they'd be untouchable.
