AHL All-Star defenseman Andy Delmore tied a team record with four goals and he, Mark Hartigan and Peter Sarno each recorded five points as Syracuse rolled to a 9-4 win over Binghamton at the Memorial Auditorium in Utica, N.Y., on Wednesday night.
Delmore scored once in the first period before striking three times in a span of 98 seconds to turn a 2-1 deficit into a 4-2 lead.
Hartigan had a goal and four assists and Sarno registered five assists on the night. Rookie Geoff Platt added a goal and an assist for the Crunch, who finished the evening with five power-play goals.
Brandon Bochenski had two goals and an assist for the Senators, who actually led at the first intermission.
Delmore, the top-scoring defenseman in the league, is the eighth AHL player to score at least four goals in a game this season.
It was the first regular-season AHL game in Utica since Dec. 28, 1996, when Syracuse defeated the Binghamton Rangers, 6-3. From 1987-93, the Memorial Auditorium was home to the AHL’s Utica Devils and players such as Martin Brodeur, Bill Guerin, Jim Dowd and Eric Weinrich.
