AHL Game Night: 1-2-15 Crunch at Devils

Vasiy en fuego.

SYR-2
ALB-1 (SO)

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 1 goal on 36 shots before stopping 10 of 10 shooters in the penalty shot session for the SO victory. His save percentage rises to .923 and I don't know how he wasn't named all three of the game's stars after helping his team to overcome a 36-26 shot deficit.

Shootout
SYR- Lynch
ALB- NONE

Vasilevskiy and Vladislav Namestnikov were the game's first and second stars.

Such a sloppy effort by the Crunch tonight, but Vasilevskiy was the ultimate eraser for the odd man rushes the team surrendered, helping them to snap a 3 game losing streak in the process.

The Crunch scrambled back into a tie with Springfield atop the division at 46 points heading into tomorrow's matchup with Bingo.

AHL Game Night: 12-20-14 Devils at Crunch

Fans went to a fight and another Syracuse Crunch win broke out.

ALB-2
SYR-3

Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 28 shots for the victory. That's 4 straight quality starts and 5 straight wins and he's run his save percentage up to .907 now.

First Period
SYR Angelidis, (11) (Marchessault, Namestnikov), 8:41 (PP)
SYR Blunden, (5) (Angelidis), 13:34

Second Period
ALB Boucher, (7) (Whitney, Scarlett), 7:32 (PP)
SYR Namestnikov, (4) (Nesterov, Samson), 9:30 (PP)

Third Period
ALB Thompson, (13) (Black), 7:56

Mike Angelidis, Vladislav Namestnikov, and Gudlevskis were the game's three stars. The Crunch ran their winning streak to 9 games as they continue to diligently stalk Manchester for first place in the Eastern Conference, where they remain just a point out. Given the Lightning's struggles up top, though, I would not be shocked to see Namestnikov moved back up sooner rather than later to try to shake the chemistry up in Tampa. Either way, though, the Crunch defense and goaltending seem to have it rolling now. They'll reconvene Friday against the Devils when I suspect there might be a roster change or three, because a defenseman may be going up, too.

AHL Game Night: 12-10-14 Crunch at Falcons

Vasilevskiy rising.

SYR-2
SPR-0

First Period
SYR Nesterov, (3) (Angelidis, Namestnikov), 18:01

Second Period
NO SCORING

Third Period
SYR Blunden, (3) , 19:13 (EN)

Vasilevskiy, Nikita Nesterov, and Vladislav Namestnikov were the game's three stars. Since being sent down to Syracuse, Namestnikov has averaged 2 points a game with 2 goals and 6 points in 3 games.

Namestnikov Making Most of Return to Crunch


By Jeremy Houghtaling

Vlad Namestnikov took less than one minute to show up on the scoresheet in his return to Syracuse.

The center, assigned to the Crunch last week to get more ice time after initially making the Tampa Bay Lightning out of training camp, scored a power play goal 59 seconds into his first game back and finished with two goals and three assists in a pair of weekend wins for the Crunch.

Namestnikov understands the reasons for being sent back to the American Hockey League, and is continuing to work on improving his game to return to the Lightning.

“I’m trying to stay positive,” Namestnikov said. “If I keep working and keep improving, I think good things will happen.”
