SYRACUSE, N. Steven Nelson Jersey .Y. - Brett Connolly scored once and set up three more and Jonathan Marchessault had a pair of goals as the Syracuse Crunch defeated the visiting Toronto Marlies 6-3 on Saturday in American Hockey League action. Mike Angelidis, Yanni Gourde and Philippe Paradis also scored for the Crunch (30-30-12) while Cedrick Desjardins made 33 saves for the win. Sam Carrick, Greg McKegg and T.J. Brennan supplied the scoring for the Marlies (42-24-6), who played half the game without head coach Steve Spott after, who was ejected in the second period for abuse of the official. Toronto took the first six minor penalties of the game and found themselves down 3-0 after the first period. Angelidis opened the scoring with a power-play goal exactly one minute into the game. Paradis doubled the Crunch lead at 12:33 and Gourde added a goal late in the period while on the man advantage. Carrick put the Marlies on the board 3:29 into the second period, but Marchessault responded with two goals 2:03 apart to make it 5-1 Syracuse. Frustration boiled over for Spott and his club and at 13:42 he was assessed a game misconduct for unsportsmanlike conduct. Torontos Korbinian Holzer and Brad Staubitz were ejected for fighting altercations on the same play. Brennan scored in the final minute of the second for the Marlies and McKegg made it a two-goal game 4:09 into the third. Connolly, however, halted any chance of a comeback when he made it 6-3 at 17:17. Torontos Frazer McLaren was added to the list of ejected players at 12:13 of the third when he was assessed a major for charging. In all, the Marlies had 90 minutes in penalties while the Crunch had 37. Syracuse went 2 for 9 on the power play while Toronto went 0 for 1. Tamba Hali Jersey . The 10-year deal the league and players agreed to that ended the 2011 lockout gave either side the right to opt out after six years. With the league projecting financial growth, there has been speculation that players will take that option in three years, especially since a new national TV contract will be in place by then.

The trio of Cory Conacher, Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Stephane Da Costa took advantage of a day off Monday to enjoy the news before returning their focus to the hard work that lies ahead. Da Costas performance was perhaps the biggest surprise. The 24-year-old centre seemed to fall out of favour with the Senators last season and was told to commit to his summer training regimen and be willing to make some adjustments. He took the advice and spent the summer in Poland training with his older brother Teddy, who is currently playing in Finland. "I knew what they were saying and I took it seriously," said Da Costa. "Im not the biggest player physically so I knew I had to work on that and I tried to focus on my defensive play." While he spent much of the pre-season centring the teams top line as Jason Spezza recovered from a mild groin sprain, Da Costa found himself on a line between Zack Smith and Chris Neil at Tuesdays practice. "Hes a player that plays with speed and some tenacity and hes got good skill level," said head coach Paul MacLean. "He was good in the faceoff circle so we expect him to do the same things. The expectation is that hell continue to play well and should be able to create more opportunities for those guys to maybe have an opportunity to score." Conacher had been one of four players being considered to play on the left wing on the second line with Clarke MacArthur and Kyle Turris, but he was easily the most consistent of all. The trio seemed to generate some early chemistry. "Theyre two guys who are pretty easy to play with," said Conacher. "I just want to try and create space for them because theyre two guys who are really good with the puck. As long as Im being a little bit of a pest in the (offensive) zone that will create a little bit more room for them." At five foot eight, Conacher is the Senators smallest player and hes also diabetic, but he wont let his size or his illness define his career. He refuses to allow anything to be used as an excuse should his play begin to slide. "Theres so much competition so you cant be too comfortable," saidd Conacher. Terrance Mitchell Jersey. "I have to show that Im willing to get better every day and it starts off by the things I eat and how I track my diabetes. "I think I worked a lot this summer to be more focused and more reliable on the ice to allow the coach to put me on the ice with two minutes left in the game rather than sit me on the bench." After an impressive start to his pro career last season -- which featured a playoff hat trick -- many wondered if Jean-Gabriel Pageau would be able to thrive under the high expectations. Pageau, 20, participated in the teams summer development camp and was strong at the rookie tournament. He earned regular praise from MacLean through the pre-season. "Its a great feeling (to be here)," said Pageau. "But even today I dont want to take anything for granted. I know theres always players pushing to come back here, but Im ready to do all the sacrifices to stay with the big team." As the teams youngest player, Pageau isnt afraid to take advice from his older and more experienced teammates. He also believes last years experience allowed him to come into camp with more confidence. "It helped me be more comfortable both on and off the ice," admitted Pageau. "I think when youre more comfortable you can play your real game. You dont have to think between every play you can just go and play like you can play." While all three players will face different challenges, the one thing the Senators will be looking for is a consistent effort. "As young players the hardest thing to find in the league is consistency," said MacLean. "At some point and time someone or all three could struggle with that, but at this point theyve been probably the most consistent players from the start of training camp to the end of training camp and as a result theyre here to start the season." Notes: Spezza has been sidelined by a mild groin sprain was able to take part in a full practice Tuesday and believes progress has been made. "It seemed to hold up pretty good," said Spezza. "I got through a whole practice and it felt pretty good. There was some hard skating." Spezza doesnt anticipate any more setbacks and is looking forward to Ottawas season opener at Buffalo on Friday.
