With the Albany Devils nipping at their heels in the standings, the Syracuse Crunch found a way to pull out a win.
For Syracuse head coach Benoit Groulx, the game showed his players could get two points even if they weren’t at their best.
“We were a vulnerable team tonight, playing our ninth game in 16 days with traveling in the middle of that and playing against a rested team,” Groulx said. “I thought our goalie was phenomenal. He allowed us to stay in that game, obviously. They were skating better than us. They were first on pucks. They were the best team on the ice tonight, but we found a way.”
