SYRACUSE SPEAKS: The Most Wonderful Time of the Year (podcast)

It’s all about the comfortable predictability of the Crunch’s November. Alex Ackerman discusses the team’s recent string of successes, which isn’t unexpected given Syracuse’s tendencies under head coach Ben Groulx. Alex also identifies some shaky areas Syracuse is trying to figure out. She discusses the goaltending, including how the recent injury to Hugo Alnefelt has changed things, and the recall of ECHL organizational goalie Jack LaFontaine. She also mentions the recall of Alex Barre-Boulet to the Tampa Bay Lightning, and the performance of defenseman Darren Raddysh. Alex takes the temperature of the fans using the results of a recent Twitter poll and breaks down how the fans are feeling. She also takes a peek at the Unofficial Daniel Walcott Career Milestone Tracker, and muses about the return of team captain Gabriel Dumont from injury. 

Alex ends the podcast in her usual way by taking a look at the Crunch’s next few weeks of games and promotions, highlighting the team’s North Division competition. Alex also discusses an upcoming beloved minor league hockey tradition, The Teddy Toss.
