AHL Game Day: 12-15-18 Crunch at Rocket

I'm not sure Syracuse knew there was a hockey game today.

SYR-0
LAV-4

Connor Ingram allowed 3 goals on 26 shots for the loss.

First Period
15:28 LAV Belzile (5), (Mete, Martineau)
17:30 LAV Froese (10), (McCarron)

NO SCORING

Third Period
10:29 LAV Jevpalovs (6), (Sklenicka)
19:38 LAV Lernout (1), (unassisted)(EN)(SH)

The Crunch managed just 12 shots on goal. In the entire game. What a horribly flat effort.

Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

Baie-Comeau Drakkar 4 @ Rimouski Oceanic 3

C/W Gabriel Fortier, BC: 0-1-1, -1, 0 PIM, 4 SOG, 7/11 FO, 2 Hits
Season Totals: 33 GP, 14-28-42, +19, 19 PIM

Baie-Comeau erased 2-0 and 3-2 deficits to steal a road win in Rimouski. Gabriel Fortier had an assist to extend his point streak to five games. He has been rather assist-heavy recently with only two goals in his last eight contests. Salda remains with the Czech U20 national team in preparation for World Juniors.

Ontario Hockey League

Kitchener Rangers 2 @ Sudbury Wolves 5

C/W Alexey Lipanov, KIT: 0-1-1, -2, 0 PIM, 2 SOG, 3/14 FO
Season Totals: 27 GP, 7-7-14, -20, 8 PIM
17-18 Totals (BAR, SBY): 55 GP, 14-25-39, -14, 10 PIM

Lipanov had the primary assist on Jonathan Yantsis’ go-ahead goal in the second period, but that 2-1 lead was short-lived as Lipanov’s former team scored the game’s next four goals. Lipanov played 20 games for Sudbury last season after coming over in a trade from Barrie. He had nine points in those 20 games. Quinton Byfield (2020), the No. 1 overall pick in the OHL this year, had two goals Friday for the Wolves. The 6-5, 214-pound center has 14 goals and 29 points in 27 games this season. He is expected to go early in the 2020 NHL draft.

Shootout
SYR- Volkov, Somppi
LAV- Audette

Andy Andreoff and Carter Verhaeghe were the game's first and second stars.

When Syracuse recently lost Mitchell Stephens from the lineup again due to injury, one might've been concerned with the Crunch once again losing the services of one of their best centermen. Except, oh, they just pulled Otto Somppi out of the can. Somppi's first two games with Syracuse, 1-1-2 and a shootout winner tonight. Tampa Bay's organization continues to be an embarrassment of riches from a depth standpoint.
