AHL Game Night: 2-9-13 Devils at Crunch

Third Period choke.

ALB-4
SYR-3

Dustin Tokarski allowed 4 goals on 21 shots. Really, it was 4 goals on 8 shots in the Third Period. Not good.

First Period

Second Period
SYR Namestnikov, (3) (Wyman, Oberg), 1:39

Third Period

SYR Johnson, (22) (Connolly), 19:38

Evan Oberg was the game's third star. Remember Evan Oberg? 5 points in 33 games is almost unthinkable considering how productive and active he was last season.

What an epic melt down. At least the Crunch finally got Tyler Johnson off the side of the milk carton.

Crunch Falter in Third, Fall to Devils 4-3


By Jeremy Houghtaling

For Tyler Johnson, it was a game he'd rather just forget.

Despite tallying a pair of goals to break out of an 11-game drought, the Syracuse Crunch forward had trouble coming up with words to describe the third period.

The Crunch, who came into the frame with a two-goal lead on the Albany Devils, allowed four straight goals in a 4-3 loss at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday. One night after snapping a two-game losing streak, Syracuse found itself with the same problems that caused it to drop six out of the previous eight.

"It was just a lot of stupid mistakes, it was uncharacteristic of our team," Johnson said. "I can't really think of a word except horrendous; it just wasn't good. Our effort was there, it was just dumb. We didn't play smart."
