STEPHENVILLE, N.L. - The Syracuse Crunch overcame a 2-0 deficit to beat the St. John's IceCaps 3-2 in a shootout Friday in AHL exhibition play.

Hunter Trembley opened the scoring late in the first period with one-second left on a five-on-three power-play. Carl Klingberg made it 2-0 St. John's at 1:03 into the second period.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
