You can go home again, Syracuse Crunch, but why would you want to?  The streaking Salt City skaters spanked Springfield 6-3 (break to towel off your monitor) in the last game of a five-game road trip last night. 

Defenseman Dylan Reese potted a pair of markers in the second period, his last proving to be the game-winner.

The Crunch won the final four contests of the journey after dropping the first match-up in overtime.

Syracuse has now earned a point in their last six games and in eight of their last 10.  They currently trail Wilkes-Barre by four points for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. 

The Crunch return home tonight to host arch-rival Rochester at the War Memorial at OnCenter.
