The Syracuse Crunch topped the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, 3-2, this morning at Webster Bank Arena.
After giving up the first goal, the Crunch rallied back to tie the game twice off goals from Peter Abbandonato and Danick Martel before Alex Volkov gave Syracuse the lead in the third period. The win snaps a five-game skid and moves the Crunch to 21-21-3-3 on the season. Syracuse took the four-game season series against Bridgeport, 3-1-0-0.
Goaltender Scott Wedgewood recorded the win turning aside 30-of-32 shots between the pipes for the Crunch. Christopher Gibson stopped 33-of-36 in net for the Sound Tigers. Syracuse was unable to covert on five power play opportunities, but went a perfect 7-for-7 on the penalty kill.
The Sound Tigers opened scoring with 2:09 remaining in the first period. Josh Ho-Sang sent a cross-zone pass for Cole Bardreau to pick up and send home from the right circle. Ryan Bourque tallied a point on the tally.
A good start to the four-game road trip. #SYRvsBRI
