After giving up the first goal, the Syracuse Crunch rallied past the Toronto Marlies to take a 2-1 victory tonight at Coca-Cola Coliseum.
Gemel Smith and Taylor Raddysh both tallied a goal and an assist to help lift the Crunch to 29-23-4-5 on the season and 3-1-0-0 in the six-game season series against the Marlies.
Goaltender Spencer Martin turned aside 31-of-32 shots in net for the Crunch. Joseph Woll stopped 27-of-29 between the pipes for the Marlies. Syracuse was unable to convert on their one power play opportunity, but went a perfect 7-for-7 on the penalty kill.
The Marlies opened scoring 13 minutes into the first period. Teemu Kivihalme got the puck at the point, cut down the right wing and stuffed the puck past Martin. Assists went to Timothy Liljegren and Matt Lorito.
That’s how you respond. #SYRvsTOR
