The Cleveland Monsters fell 3-2 in a shootout to the Syracuse Crunch on Friday night at Upstate Medical University Arena. With the shootout loss, the Monsters are now 3-1-0-2 and are currently in second place in the AHL’s North Division standings.

 

Syracuse’s Gage Goncalves scored the lone goal of the opening frame at 18:58 sending Cleveland into the first intermission trailing 1-0. Following a scoreless second period, Kevin Stenlund deflected a shot in at 1:45 of the final frame with assists from Jake Christiansen and Justin Danforth to tie the game 1-1. Gabriel Fortier notched a tally for the Crunch a minute later at 2:45, but Danforth recorded a marker at 6:33 off helpers from Stenlund and Cole Clayton bringing the score to 2-2. After no goals in the extra overtime frame, the Monsters fell in a shootout after Goncalves scored the Crunch’s 3-2 game-winning goal.
