SYRACUSE, N.Y. – The Syracuse Crunch was blanked by the Rochester Americans, 2-0, tonight at the Upstate Medical University Arena.

The loss moves the Crunch to 36-21-4-2 on the season. Syracuse wraps up the 12-game season series against Rochester, 7-2-2-1.

Crunch goaltender Matt Tomkins stopped 25-of-27 shots. Dustin Tokarski turned aside all 29 shots he faced in net for the Amerks. The Syracuse power play was held scoreless on three opportunities, while the penalty kill went a perfect 5-for-5.

The Amerks opened scoring halfway through the first period. Tomkins made the initial save, but Linus Weissbach got his stick on the rebound and chipped it in during a scramble in front of the crease. Rochester doubled their lead two minutes later when Jiri Kulich redirected Ethan Prow’s right-point shot.

Rochester maintained their lead through the next two and a half periods to take the win.

The Crunch hosts the Lehigh Valley Phantoms on Friday.
