AHL Game Night: 2-8-13 Phantoms at Crunch

Getting back on track.


Dustin Tokarski allowed 2 goals on 26 shots for the victory.

First Period
SYR Angelidis, (7) (Cote), 14:33

Second Period
SYR Connolly, (18) (Killorn), 4:20
ADK FitzGerald, (1) (Syvret), 5:37
ADK Laliberte, (1) (Akeson, Dimmen), 12:20

Third Period
SYR Panik, (21) (Gauthier, Namestnikov), 9:15
SYR Devos, (3) (Connolly), 17:30

Richard Panik, Brett Connolly, and Mike Angelidis were the game's three stars. That's some impressive leadership by example by three of the team's best players.

It was a long week of hard work and soul searching for the Crunch as they continue to try to establish an identity in the post-lockout world. Fortunately, they got a result from their work right out of the chute, which is important to validate what they've put into the process so far and to keep it going.

Albany comes to town tomorrow. Syracuse moves within 2 points of Binghamton for both the East Division and the Eastern Conference lead.

Orlando came out of the gate strong, taking an early first period lead and outshooting Florida 11-6 but the Everblades were quickly able to counter and later tack on a couple strikes in the middle frame while, buoyed by the solid play of netminder Pat Nagle, keeping the Solar Bears offense at bay for the remainder of the game in order to secure the road win. Nagle, who stopped all but one of thirty-five shots on goal, earned the game's third star. After being held scoreless against Greenville, Alex Hutchings returned to the scoresheet with a helper on Leigh Salters' game-tying goal. Maxime Langelier-Parent and Charles Landry, who remains in Syracuse with the Crunch, were out of the lineup. Florida (23-16-8, 54 PTS) and Orlando (21-23-5, 47 PTS) square off again Friday night at the Amway Center.
