A power play worse than Tampa Bay's.
Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 27 shots for the loss. The number looks ugly, but I can't be mad about any of the three goals. The first was a clean faceoff loss and a seeing eye point shot through a ton of traffic. Second goal was a breakaway after an awful Gourde turnover where Kristers got the first shot but got beat on the rebound. Third goal was a 2-on-1 where Blujus failed to block the pass across and Blunden couldn't catch up to the goal scorer.

Syracuse was 0-for-8 on the power play. Unlike Tampa Bay, though, which has plenty of finishers, I think the Crunch suffer from having only 1 or 2 pure finishers like Marchessault. As a consequence, they should be playing more of a shot/rebound style of basic PP, but that's not what they seemed interested in doing today.
