Tic goes 3-0-0-0 for the weekend.

Keith Aulie (pictured), Brett Connolly, and Tokarski were your three stars. Aulie popped in his first goal of the season, which was his 6th in 115 career AHL games. He's the secret weapon. Connolly raised himself up to a point a game pace with his second multi-point outing in as many nights.
These two teams rematch Saturday in Syracuse. The Crunch moved into a one point lead over Norfolk in the division with the W.
