Our Ducklings in Syracuse hit a bump in the road in the Calder Cup Playoffs when they fell 5-1 at St. John's (Winnipeg affiliate) last night in Game 3 of their first round series. The Crunch trails two games to one in the five-game series, hoping to prolong a season in which they finished a blazing 15-3-1-1 to earn a postseason berth.
Winger Kyle Palmieri
was a part of that run (despite spending part of it up with the Ducks) and had an outstanding season in Syracuse, scoring 33 goals in 51 games. I spent some time with on the phone with the bright and affable Palmieri this morning, and you can read that Q&A here.
