    Gudlevskis responds.

    SYR-2
    UTI-1 (OT)

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 1 goal on 29 shots for the OT win, rebounding from giving up 4 or more goals in each of his previous 3 starts. Gudlevskis saw the Vasilevskiy train leaving the station, and didn't want to be left behind. Big plus for the Crunch that he stepped up tonight.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    UTI DeFazio, (9) (Tommernes, Sanguinetti), 15:09
    SYR Angelidis, (10) (Ikonen, Mormina), 17:49

    Overtime
    SYR Gourde, (11) (Richard, Mormina), 6:00

    Gudlevskis and Yanni Gourde were the game's first and second stars. Also, very quietly, Henri Ikonen has 1 goal and 3 points in the last 2 games. That matches his statistical output from all of November.

    The Crunch's win pulls them within 2 points of division and conference leading Springfield, which lost to Norfolk tonight. Syracuse has 2 games in hand on the Falcons, and they can move into a tie with Springfield on Wednesday when they square off against Rochester.

    Little things.

    TB-2
    WSH-4

    Ben Bishop allowed 3 goals on 27 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    10:33 WSH Backstrom (6), (Wilson, Schmidt)
    18:40 WSH Backstrom (7), (Ovechkin, Wilson)

    Third Period
    2:17 WSH Backstrom (8), (Ovechkin)
    15:36 TB Johnson (9), (Carle, Kucherov)
    17:29 TB Carle (3), (Stamkos, Garrison)
    19:21 WSH Fehr (6), (unassisted)(EN)

    Frustrating. This was a game filled with self-inflicted wounds. I'm not going to dwell on the disallowed Stamkos goal in the First Period, because ultimately that's not what undid the Lightning in this game. They had a 5-on-3 for a full 2 minutes and only got a slow dribbler chance by Callahan that Holtby held out. Then Paquette loses a faceoff and loses his man. Little thing. Down 1-0. They have plenty of guys back in transition and they completely blow the coverage and Backstrom gets a rebound goal. Little thing. Down 2-0. They have a neutral zone turnover and the defense parts to let Backstrom get a prime chance in the slot. Little thing. Down 3-0. They even have 2 players collide at center with the extra attacker so Fehr can get the EN goal. Little things, and they surrender the 4th goal. It's not like the Caps have dominated these two games, but the Lightning have done everything in their power to make them look like world beaters. Other than the PK there was very little of value to take out of tonight, other than what little morale building you can get out of climbing to withing 1 goal late in a game where you were down 3-0 in the Third Period.

    Moving back to basics: Cooper's got to get these guys to get 35 shots on goal a night. The shot totals have been anemic lately, and when shot totals are low you don't get a good diet of greasy goals. They need that, and they need a healthy Palat back. A functional PP would be a nice change of pace, too. Every season has a spot like this where the offense will just struggle to get goals. It seems like, more often than not, the Lightning's struggle seems to come in December. It happened in '03. It's happening now.

    Cedric Paquette was -1 with 4 penalty minutes, 3 hits, and he was 33% on draws. The first goal was on him. He lost the draw and then lost Backstrom, which allowed Backstrom to easily collect the blocked shot and roll to the slot to get the backhander. Not good.

    Jonathan Drouin was -2 with 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 1 hit in 10:55. He was on the ice for Paquette's faux-pas and the Fehr empty-netter, so the +/- is deceiving. He got more comfortable and looked more dangerous as the game rolled on.

    Saku Salminen, HPK, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 6 SOG
    Season totals: 17 GP, 1-3-4, +1, 2 PIM

    Saku Salminen had a team high 6 shots on goal in 12:57 in HPK's 2-1 win over Lukko. Ex-Isles pick Jyri Niemi potted a goal in the victory for HPK.

    Magnitogorsk 3 vs. Jokerit 4

    Vasily Koshechkin left the game midway through the Second Period in Magnitogorsk's 4-3 loss to Jokerit. Ex-University of New Hampshire product Steve Moses led the way for Jokerit with 2 goals and 4 points.

    No. 1 North Dakota 1 @ No. 11 Denver Pioneers 4

    F Brendan O’Donnell, UND: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 16 GP, 5-2-7, E, 23 PIM
    2013-2014 totals: 34 GP, 7-11-18, +7, 10 PIM

    O’Donnell’s brief two-game goal streak came to an end as Denver upset No. 1 UND, 4-1. Defenseman Joey LaLeggia had a goal for Denver. The senior was a teammate of O’Donnell’s in Penticton of the BCHL before they left for school.

    Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

    Drummondville Voltigeurs 0 @ Sherbrooke Phoenix 4

    C Cameron Darcy, SHR: 0-2-2, E, 2 PIM, 9/20 FO, 3 Hits, *Third Star*
    With Sherbrooke: 1 GP, 0-2-2, E, 2 PIM
    With Cape Breton: 21 GP, 1-13-15, -6, 14 PIM
    Season totals: 22 GP, 1-15-17, -6, 16 PIM
    2013-2014 Season: 65 GP, 35-47-82, +3, 51 PIM

    Darcy (pictured) made his Sherbrooke debut after being traded by Cape Breton during the week. Darcy, who was dropped off the Eagles roster after a slow start, was acquired to fill an overage slot. The Phoenix paid a draft pick to get him. Hopefully the fresh start ignites Darcy’s game, though he does have six points in his last three games (all assists).

    Ontario Hockey League

    Sarnia Sting 4 @ Kitchener Rangers 1

    D Anthony DeAngelo, SAR: 0-1-1, E, 4 PIM
    Season totals: 27 GP, 8-26-34, E, 64 PIM
    2013-14 totals: 51 GP, 15-56-71, -34, 90 PIM

    DeAngelo’s point streak hit six games when he earned a power play assist late in the game. He continues to be a major catalyst for the improving Sting.

    Windsor Spitfires 0 @ Sudbury Wolves 3

    W Cristiano DiGiacinto, WSR: 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM
    Season totals: 24 GP, 9-6-15, -10, 38 PIM
    2013-14 totals: 50 GP, 17-11-28, +8, 101 PIM

    Windsor fell to 1-1 on their northern Ontario road trip despite outshooting Sudbury 43-33. Troy Timpano (2015) had the shutout for the Wolves.

    Indy Fuel 2 at Florida Everblades 3

    D Artem Sergeev, FLA: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 16 GP, 4-4-8, +7, 6 PIM, 20 SOG

    Other Notables
    G Allen York, FLA, W, 60:00 MIN, 2 GA, 17 SH, 15 SV
    Season totals: 14 GP, 11-2-0-1, 2.11 GAA, 0.909 SV%, 2 SO

    F Jeff Costello, FLA: DNP
    Season totals (ECHL): 12 GP, 4-0-4, +6, 18 PIM, 23 SOG
    Season totals (AHL): 3 GP, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM

    F Mike Aviani, FLA: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals (ECHL): 13 GP, 3-3-6, +2, 11 PIM, 21 SOG
    Season totals (AHL): 2 GP, 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM

    The visiting Indy Fuel with former Bolt prospect Kirill Gotovets failed in a 3rd period two-goal rally against the Everblades in Estero. Lightning prospect Artem Sergeev assisted on what would be Mitch Wahl's 2nd period game winning marker. Allen York notched his 11th victory in light duty, seeing only 17 Indy shots. Florida owns the ECHLs best win percentage, sporting a gaudy 0.825 having won 4 straight and 9 of their 10 games and owning a +28 goal differential. The Blades and Fuel rematch Saturday night.

    Quad City Mallards 3 at Wichita Thunder 1

    F Danick Gauthier, WIC: 0-0-0, -3, 0 PIM, 5 SOG
    Season totals (ECHL): 23 GP, 12-11-23, -2, 31 PIM, 79 SOG
    Season totals (AHL): 1 GP, 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM

    D Daniel Milan, WIC: 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 23 GP, 0-5-5, -5, 53 PIM, 26 SOG

    After an extended road trip, the Thunder returned home for a tilt against the Quad City. Wichita Wichita feels like they have been in a funk since that 180+ PIM brawl in Elmira, and Lightning prospect Danick Gauthier is struggling defensively. On the ice for all three Mallard goals, Gauthier is mired in a mini-funk of his own after racking up 15 PIMs of his own in that raucous Jackals game. The Mallards leap-frogged the Thunder in the Central Division with Friday's win as Wichita rides a 3-game losing streak and only 4 wins in their last 10. No time to hang your head, Wichita takes on Rapid City Saturday night.

    By Jeremy Houghtaling

    After allowing the first goal late in the opening frame, the Syracuse Crunch fired back.

    Mike Angelidis tied the score to start the annual teddy bear toss early in the second, Syracuse netted three goals in the third period, and Andrei Vasilevskiy finished with 29 saves, as the Crunch beat the Hershey Bears, 4-1, to win their fifth straight at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    For Syracuse head coach Rob Zettler, the big third period came down to the team creating traffic in front of Hershey netminder Philipp Grubauer.

    "The bottom line was I thought we had a lot of chances -- especially in the first and second period -- but I thought (Grubauer) saw everything," Zettler said. "That goal, that power play goal, Joel Vermin was right in front of him, it went off of him and he didn't see it."

  • 6 days 14 hours ago

    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.
