AHL Game Night: 1-24-15 Wolf Pack at Crunch

Syracuse takes the division lead heading into the AHL All-Star Break.

HFD-2
SYR-3

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 2 goals on 32 shots for the victory. As with last night's game, solid stat line and key saves at key moments.

First Period
SYR Blunden, (12) (Koekkoek, Corrente), 1:29
HFD Allen, (6) (Mueller, Vaive), 5:17 (PP)

Second Period

Third Period
HFD Hrivik, (5) (Bodie, Kristo), 2:31

SYR Angelidis, (14) (Blunden, Mormina), 9:48 (PP)

Mike Blunden, Mike Angelidis, and Vasilevskiy were the game's three stars.

The win allows Syracuse to move 1 point ahead of Springfield into first place in the Northeast Division, 1 point back of Manchester for the conference lead. Almost as important, it allowed the Crunch to expand their lead over the Wolf Pack to 4 points in the ultra-competitive Northeast race, as the Crunch's division might be the toughest in the league this season.

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: 12-12-14 Bears at Crunch

Vasilevskiy's rampage continues.

HER-1
SYR-4

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 1 goal on 30 shots for the victory. He finally saw his shutout streak snapped, but his performance tonight raised his season save percentage to .918 and lowered his GAA to 2.34. He's allowed 1 or fewer goals in each of his last 4 starts and won 7 of his last 8 starts. He has the potential to elevate Syracuse from a playoff contender to a championship contender.

First Period
HER Galiev, (8) (Carrick, Kennedy), 15:48 (PP)

Second Period
SYR Angelidis, (9) (Ikonen, Blunden), 4:13

Third Period
SYR Vermin, (7) (Blujus, Koekkoek), 15:03 (PP)
SYR Smith, (7) (Namestnikov, Marchessault), 16:19
SYR Ikonen, (2) , 19:25 (EN)

Joel Vermin, Vasilevskiy, and Mike Angelidis were the game's three stars.

Mike Angelidis, Vladislav Namestnikov, and Yanni Gourde were the game's three stars.

There's simply no excuse to almost squander a 5 goal lead, and while Syracuse continues to scores goals at an accelerated clip they continue to struggle keeping it out of their own net.
