SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Alex Barre-Boulet scored the game-winner with just 17 seconds remaining in regulation to lift the Syracuse Crunch over the Belleville Senators, 2-1, today at the Upstate Medical University Arena.

The win advances Syracuse to 13-11-3-1 on the season and 1-1-0-0 in the eight-game season series against Belleville.

Crunch goaltender Hugo Alnefelt earned the win with 23 saves, while Mads Sogaard stopped 28-of-30 between the pipes for the Senators. Syracuse went 1-for-3 on the power play and 1-for-2 on the penalty kill.

The Crunch jumped out to a quick lead off a power-play goal just 5:44 into the game. After receiving the puck at the goal line, Gabriel Dumont fed Remi Elie with a short pass across the crease. Elie's first shot was blocked by Sogaard, but he chipped in his own rebound.

The Senators tied the game with a power-play goal of their own 55 seconds into the second period. Jake Lucchini grabbed the loose puck in the slot and backhanded a pass for Andrew Agozzino to score from the bottom of the left circle.

Barre-Boulet secured the win for the Crunch with just 17 seconds remaining in the game when he tipped in Fredrik Claesson's left point shot.
