The last time we checked in on the AHL's Syracuse Crunch, they were completing a valiant comeback from down 5-0 to the Binghamton Senators after a goalie fight between Riku Helenius and Robin Lehner spiced things up.
On Saturday night, the Crunch were hosting the St. John's Ice Caps and with the score tied 2-2 early in the second period, fireworks erupted after a hit in the corner, which eventually led to goaltenders Dustin Tokarski and Eddie Pasquale facing off with one another at center ice.
Both goalies were given two minutes for leaving the crease, five for fighting and a 10-minute game misconduct. Mark Dekanich would come in for the Ice Caps, while Helenius would enter for Tokarski.
Syracuse would win the game 6-3, thanks to three third period goals and 15 saves from Helenius.
That's a pretty solid win for Tokarski, and makes us wonder what kind of tilt he and Lehner would provide.
