12:24 SYR Volkov (10), (Gaunce, Katchouk)
19:00 SYR Yan (9), (Conacher, Dumont)(EN)

Alexander Volkov and Nolan Valleau were the game's first and third stars.

Syracuse built a nice three goal lead early in the Second Period only to surrender that lead entirely by early in the Third Period. It took a key goal by Volkov to help the Crunch get this one across the finish line. It was vital for a team that's been struggling a bit lately with a slightly sub-.500 record in their last ten games. Part of the issue has been the injury absence of Connor Ingram, who reportedly is close to returning, which has put an unsustainable workload on Eddie Pasquale over the past few weeks. Ingram's return could be a needed shot in the arm for Syracuse whenever it happens. The team remains three points out of the top spot in the North Division with one game in hand on Rochester and six in hand on Utica.

NHL Game Night: 1-17-19 Maple Leafs at Lightning

Lightning lose a rare squeaker.

TOR-4
TB-2

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 3 goals on 30 shots for the loss.

First Period
9:48 TB Point (30), (Hedman, Stamkos)

14:49 TOR Marner (19), (Tavares, Johnsson)

Third Period
19:09 TOR Hyman (8), (Zaitsev, Tavares)(EN)

Brayden Point was the game's second star.

I'm sure Toronto sports radio is already planning the Leafs' parade route based on the night's result, but truth be told I thought the Lightning played reasonably well and win with that effort 6-7 times out of 10. They just couldn't get the finish. When Nikita Kucherov caught Anderson off his angle late in the Third Period with the extra attacker on and a ton of room to the short side and proceeding to target shoot it back into Anderson's crest, you knew it wasn't meant to be. That happens. The Lightning have won more than their fair share of these kinds of games, but you have to expect you're going to run into that 3-4 times out of 10 every once in a while.

Adam Erne was -1 with 1 shot in 11:21.

Erik Cernak was +1 with 2 shots and 6 hits in 17:38.

AHL Game Night: 1-16-19 Crunch at Comets

Crunch get the false hope goal, but fall in Utica.

SYR-4
UTI-5

Eddie Pasquale allowed 5 goals on 27 shots for the loss before being replaced for the Third Period where Martin Ouellette made 2 saves on 2 shots the rest of the way.

First Period
0:25 UTI Pyatt (2), (Boucher)
18:41 UTI Dahlen (10), (Kero, Boucher)(PP)

Second Period
3:00 UTI Gaudette (5), (Bancks, MacEwen)
3:59 SYR Barre-Boulet (19), (Verhaeghe)
4:57 SYR Dumont (4), (Katchouk, Raddysh)
5:38 UTI Dahlen (11), (Gaunce, MacEwen)
15:33 UTI Lind (1), (Gaudette, Blujus)

Third Period
1:02 SYR Dumont (5), (Raddysh, Valleau)
7:03 SYR Volkov (9), (Foote, Yan)(PP)

A three goal deficit in the Third Period in pro hockey remains a death sentence seemingly 99% of the time. You might get the false hope goal to draw within one, but it's so hard to get a game tied and even harder to get all the way across the finish line to a victory. Syracuse came within an eyelash of tying the game late, but that's why the false hope goal is called the false hope goal.

Syracuse has fallen 3 points back of first place in the North Division and have burned off many of their games in hand, now holding just one game in hand on division leading Rochester, although they hold a staggering six games in hand on division co-leading Utica.
