Perfect Weekend Puts Syracuse Crunch Back In Calder Cup Playoff Picture
A three-win weekend has the Syracue Crunch thinking playoffs again.  The club posted a 5-2 decision over Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Friday, topped Portland 4-3 the next night, then traveled to Binghamton to score a 4-3 overtime win over the Senators on Sunday.

Syracuse now sits just a point behind Wilkes-Barre/Scranton for fourth place in the East Division.  However, due to the layout of the Eastern Conference, the fourth-place team in the East Division is not guaranteed a spot in the Calder Cup Playoffs.

The Atlantic Division is stocked with one more teams--eight total--than any of the other three divisions.  Therefore, if the fifth-place team in the Atlantic has more points than the fourth-place team in the East, they get the playoff spot.  Bridgeport currently occupies the fifth spot in the Atlantic and has four more points than Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.


Syracuse has 16 games remaining and will return to the ice Friday night when they host Lowell.
