Crunch Hang on for 2-1 Win over Devils
SYRACUSE - Despite a big push in the third period by the Binghamton Devils, the Syracuse Crunch held on for a 2-1 victory inside the War Memorial on Monday afternoon.
Syracuse scored early and late in the first period to take a 2-0 lead. Alex Barre-Boulet got the scoring going just 1:24 into the game for the one-goal lead. Andy Andreoff found Barre-Boulet with a pass in the hash marks from the right wall and his one timer beat goaltender Cory Schneider. The goal was Barre-Boulet's 20th of the year with assists from Andreoff and Alezander Volkov.
With just 16 seconds remaining in the first frame, Cameron Gaunce was left all alone in front of Schneider and gave the Crunch a 2-0 lead. Cory Conachar moved the puck to the top of the crease and Gaunce put home his seventh of the year with helpers from Conachar and Cal Foote. Syracuse took a 2-0 lead into the second period, along with a 9-2 shot advantage.
Binghamton scored on the power play in the second period to decrease the deficit to one. Michael Kapla fed Quenneville with a pass and the forward ripped a one timer over the left shoulder of goaltender Martin Ouellette at 9:49. The goal was Auenneville's 10th of the year with assists from Kapla and Eric Tangradi. Binghamton trailed 2-1 after two periods and were outshot, 20-6.
The Devils ran out of time in the third period and the Crunch held on for the 2-1 victory. Schneider stopped 21 of 23 shots in his rehab start.
