The Syracuse Crunch took on the the WBS Penguins this afternoon in WBS with a nice contingent of youngsters on hand as it was kids club day at the Mohegan Sun Arena. A good showing for the kids just not for the WBS Penguins.
First period saw some great end to end action WBS Penguins getting some great chances but no goals. Syracuse seemed to have the Penguins play book as they seemed to be at the right place at the right time for a bit.
WBS had the only power play of the period, not reminiscent of last nights game that’s for sure, none the less they failed to convert bit did get a few chances.
First period would come to and end with both sides leaving the ice and nothing on the board. WBS outshot the Crunch this period 12 to 3.
Farnham and Gibbons get the best chance so far but no joy , Bobby Farnham got clipped with a high stick but no call. Syracuse gets the second power play of the game as Cody Wild sat for tripping, but the Penguins top rated penalty kill keeps the Crunch out.
The second period would draw to an end still looking at two goose eggs on the scoreboard a couple of good chances this period as well but Riku Helenius did a good job at keeping the Pens out.
Third period is where it all happened Syracuse scores two goals 1:23 apart to jump to a 2-0 lead it would be Wilson then Connolly scoring for Syracuse.
Later in the period the Crunch would get their third and Wilson would get his second of the game going on HTA.
That would be that fans the WBS Penguins get shutout by the Crunch 3-0, this is the third loss in three home games and the second shutout out of the three losses.
If you are keeping score the Pens have only scored once in the last three games or one goal in the last 6 periods since it was a third period goal that was scored.
