Syracuse Crunch drop Game 2 in Providence, head back home with series tied 1-1
The Syracuse Crunch had a monumental opportunity to put the Providence Bruins in an 0-2 series hole on Sunday.
But it did not happen.
The Bruins fought back, tying the series at 1-1, as it heads back to Syracuse for Games 3, 4 and 5.
For the second consecutive game of the AHL Eastern Conference Finals, the Crunch scored first. Ben Thomas scored on a wide open net from the wing to give Syracuse the early advantage.
However, that's where the scoring ended.
Providence responded with a goal from Jordan Szwarz, who camped out in front of goalie Mike McKenna, slapping in the game-tying goal.
Neither team scored in the third period, leading to an overtime session, and in overtime, Szwarz scored on a one-timer that went top shelf over McKenna.
The Bruins had taken Game 2, in overtime, 2-1.
Game 3 will take place Wednesday night at 7 p.m. from the War Memorial.
