Sound Tigers steal 3-2 win over Crunch

The Bridgeport Sound Tigers rallied back for a 3-2 win over the Syracuse Crunch tonight at Webster Bank Arena.

Gemel Smith opened scoring in the first period before the Sound Tigers evened the game in the second. Syracuse went back on top off a goal from Dennis Yan, but Bridgeport put up two third-period tallies to steal the game. The loss moves the Crunch to 15-11-2-0 on the season and 2-1-0-0 in the four-game season series with the Sound Tigers.

Goaltender Spencer Martin stopped 38-of-41 shots between the pipes for the Crunch, while Jared Coreau made 18 saves in net for the Sound Tigers. Syracuse was unable to convert on their only power play opportunity, but went a perfect 2-for-2 on the penalty kill.

The Crunch were first on the board 15:58 into the game. Alex Barre-Boulet grabbed the puck in the right circle and sent it to Boris Katchouk for a quick shot from the point. Coreau caught Smith’s redirection, but the center found the rebound and shoved it across the goal line.
