Amerks fall to Crunch in Syracuse, 5-1
The Rochester Americans and Syracuse Crunch closed out their season series Saturday at the War Memorial at Oncenter, where Brett Connolly’s hat trick powered Syracuse to a 5-1 win over the Amerks in the final meeting of the season between the intrastate rivals.
Connolly, back with the Crunch following an NHL stint with the Tampa Bay Lightning, netted the game’s first two goals, including the eventual game-winner, while Tyler Johnson, who was also reassigned to Syracuse yesterday from the Lightning, notched two points (1+1) in the win. J.T. Wyman rounded out the scoring for the Crunch and Ondrej Palat tabbed two assists behind a 20-save effort from goaltender Cedrick Desjardins.
Alex Biega potted the lone goal for Rochester and David Leggio made 28 saves in the loss for the Amerks, who saw their three-game winning streak snapped. Despite the setback, though, Rochester remains tied for fifth in the American Hockey League’s Western Conference standings with just four games left to play in the 2012-13 regular season.
