It took two minutes for the Syracuse Crunch to find the answer.
After a defensive lapse allowed Hershey to take an early lead, the Crunch roared back for five-straight goals in a 5-1 win over the Bears at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday. Syracuse has registered a point in the standings in each of the last six games.
"Real good teams find a way to get back into the game quick," said Crunch captain Mike Angelidis, who netted the goal to tie the game in the first period. "You always want to be the first team to score, it's a huge momentum booster. They got the first one, but I thought we were putting pressure on them the whole time."
Putting it all together.
Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 1 goal on 22 shots for the victory. It's Vasya's first regulation win in nearly a month, and while his save percentage still languishes below the .900 line, he did manage to even his record at 2-2-3 with the win tonight. So, you hope he's been through the worst of it and now we're going to see him really start to live up to his potential from hereon out.

Mike Angelidis, Jonathan Marchessault, and Dalton Smith were the game's three stars. It's been a while since Syracuse absolutely smashed a team like this, and it's a beautiful thing to see the depth of this team come to the forefront and to see such a solid defensive effort limiting a team to 22 shots on goal.
