The Syracuse Crunch claimed one point as the team fell to the Binghamton Devils, 6-5, in a shootout tonight at Floyd L. Maines Veterans Memorial Arena.
The loss puts the Crunch at 18-16-2-2 on the season and 1-1-0-1 in the weekend’s three-in-three. Syracuse now sits at 3-1-0-2 in the 10-game season series against Binghamton.
Goaltender Mike Condon turned aside 32-of-37 shots and 2-of-3 shootout skaters in net for the Crunch. Gilles Senn stopped 25-of-30 and all three shootout attempts between the pipes for the Devils. Syracuse converted on 1-of-3 power play opportunities and went 9-for-11 on the penalty kill.
The Crunch were first on the board and built a 3-0 lead seven minutes into the game. Alex Barre-Boulet opened scoring at just 1:41 when he tipped Cameron Gaunce’s left point shot. Four minutes later, Boris Katchouk got a stick on Gaunce’s rising shot from the blue line on the power play. Syracuse added another tally at 7:03 after Senn made the save on Devante Stephens’s left-wing shot, but the rebound dropped down for Gemel Smith to sweep in.
We take a point. #SYRvsBNG
