Under the hard-nosed direction of former NHL defenseman Trent Yawney, the Crunch rumble toward the regular season’s end determined to make a buzzer-beating push into the Calder Cup playoffs. Through 62 games, the Anaheim Ducks’ AHL affiliate has built a 27–27–4–4 record behind the sharpshooting prowess of Patrick Maroon, who sits tied for fourth in league scoring with 65 points. Passing on the temptation to make his mark by repeatedly licking a favorite spot on the bench, rookie center Peter Holland has established himself with 21 goals, and veteran netminder Iiro Tarkki’s pad blocks and glove snags have added up to well more than 1,000 saves. Punishing checks and whistling slap shots draw the approval from approximately 7,000 Crunch fans, who can use breaks in the action to track down mascot Al the Ice Gorilla and reiterate that the time for buying a new igloo condo is now.
