Affiliates of the NHL's Anaheim Ducks, the Syracuse Crunch has its second-half sights set on moving up the East Division standings and into the AHL playoffs. Cheer as left-wingers Nicolas Deschamps and Patrick Maroon cross-check opponents, hypnotically skate around mesmerized defenders, and drain three-pointers from center ice. With sharp blades and even sharper puck-manipulating capabilities, the Crunch look to give first-year head coach Mark Holick a successful inaugural campaign. From Oncenter War Memorial Arena's ice-level, Crunch Club, or lower mezzanine-level seats, fans can witness every glove-save at while reading the baroque poems that players write while in the penalty box.
