Laval Rocket's Louie Belpedio protects the puck from Syracuse Crunch's Frank Hora during the first period of a playoff game at the Place Bell Sports Complex in Laval on Saturday, May 14, 2022.

The win allowed Syracuse to tie the best-of-five North Division Calder Cup semifinal series at two games apiece. The deciding game will be played Tuesday at Upstate Medical University Arena in Syracuse, N.Y.

Cayden Primeau, who was outstanding as he led the Rocket to victories in Games 2 and 3, kept the Rocket in the hunt for two periods, but Laval was the victim of a self-inflicted wound early in the third period, which allowed the Crunch to take a 2-0 lead.

Primeau didn’t have a chance on the second Syracuse goal, which was scored on a power play. He lost his stick and was taken out of the play when Laval defenceman Xavier Ouellet pushed Gabriel Dumont into the crease. That left an open net for Remi Elie to score his third goal of the series.
