    After struggling through the second period, the Syracuse Crunch found a way to pull out the win.

    The Crunch scored two goals in the first six minutes but the Flames took the lead midway through the second. Syracuse rallied for four goals in the third to beat Adirondack, 7-4, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    "We got our thoughts together and took a few minutes to rest up, and then we said 'They're not going to give us anything, we just have to dig down, dig deep, and find a way,'" Crunch forward Tanner Richard said of what happened during the second intermission. "We all rallied together pretty well and came out with the two points."

    Crunch avenge their most humiliating loss of the year.

    ADK-4
    SYR-7

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 4 goals on 38 shots for the win. Credit him for continuing to battle after allowing 4 goals on his first 20 shots faced.

    First Period
    SYR Gourde, (23) (Ashton, Cote), 4:28
    SYR Martindale, (9) (Marchessault), 5:39
    ADK Agostino, (6) (Reinhart), 12:27 (SH)

    Second Period
    ADK Setoguchi, (2) (Vause, Acolatse), 2:15
    SYR Ashton, (6) (Richard), 3:35
    ADK Acolatse, (5) (Kulak, Arnold), 6:41 (PP)
    ADK Agostino, (7) (Setoguchi, Cundari), 11:16

    Third Period
    SYR Martindale, (10) (Koekkoek, Broll), 2:52
    SYR Witkowski, (2) (Richard, Gourde), 11:45
    SYR Richard, (11) (Gourde, Ashton), 14:15
    SYR Dotchin, (5) (Martindale), 18:29 (EN)

    Gudlevskis, Carter Ashton, and Ryan Martindale were the game's three stars. Yanni Gourde and Tanner Richard each had 3 point nights as well, so lots of Syracuse players got healthy on the stat sheet tonight.

    The Crunch have fallen 6 points out of the conference title chase, but are still up 5 points on Springfield in the division. The real question is whether Syracuse can sustain any success if Vladislav Namestnikov stays with Tampa Bay the rest of the season. It's a tough ask, but the team did manage 7 goals tonight, obviously.

    Bruised but unbroken.

    TB-2
    BOS-3 (SO)

    Ben Bishop allowed 2 goals on 30 shots before allowing 2 of 3 to convert in the penalty shot session for the SO loss. He looked like he was battling it a bit at times tonight, but 2 goals in 65 minutes is strong, even if the Bruins' second goal was a bit soft.

    First Period
    7:57 BOS Pastrnak (9), (Spooner, Lucic)
    15:29 TB Stamkos (37), (unassisted)

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    2:20 BOS Bergeron (19), (Seidenberg)
    8:04 TB Namestnikov (5), (Barberio, Sustr)

    Overtime
    NO SCORING

    Shootout
    TB- NONE
    BOS- Bergeron, Marchand

    Boston's media, bastions of class and taste that they are, decided to award all three stars to Bruins players in a game that went to the shootout and where the Lightning outshot and outchanced the B's. Quite scum baggy on their part.

    Everything was going against the Lightning going into this game as they found out they'll be facing extended absences by Palat, Coburn, and Paquette due to injury and they were heading into a barn where they simply have been cursed. They had a pretty poor First Period adjusting to the shuffled lines and pairings, but from the Second Period on they dominated, eventually outshooting the Bruins 37-30 for the game. That's an impressive show of strength from the Lightning's depth players, especially given how much Boston traps. Honestly, the two goals Boston got tonight were a goal that could've easily been waved off for being kicked in and a point shot softie that Bishop didn't get. If anything, these close games against Montreal and Boston have been very good stress tests heading toward the playoffs, and for the most part the team has responded impressively.

    With Montreal going down to Ottawa tonight, all is now square at 91 points stop the Atlantic Division with Montreal holding just 1 game in hand. The Canadiens hardly look like world beaters right now, though, so the Lightning are in good shape to take this at the finish line even with the injuries.

    Mike Angelidis had 1 hit in 7:36.

    Nikita Nesterov had 1 shot, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 13:11. I thought he was pretty heady with the puck, for the most part, but it was clear he had some struggles with the size and physicality of the Bruins' forwards. So, the coaching staff had to be careful about usage with Nikita tonight.

    Vladislav Namestnikov had a goal and was -1 with 2 shots and 3 hits in 12:29. He very quickly moved up to take the Palat spot on the line with Johnson and Kucherov and performed admirably. His goal was a pretty nice display of skill to quickly get the puck up to his stick after a point shot hit some traffic in front. He's looking like a guy who will be very hard to send down to Syracuse ever again.

    Saku Salminen, HPK, 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 36 GP, 3-5-8, E, 4 PIM

    Saku Salminen actually got to get on the ice (for 13:48, no less) and contributed a helper in HPK's season-ending 5-2 loss to TPS. TPS got 2 goals and 3 points from Mikko Rantanen, an 18 year old power forward who is expected to be a first rounder in the June draft. The 18-year old finished his campaign with 9 goals and 28 points in 56 games.

    HPK will miss the Liiga playoffs by 12 points, sitting in 11th on the 14 team Liiga table.

    Brayden Point had a goal and an assist, but it wasn’t enough to beat the conference’s best team in its own barn. Swift Current remains two points ahead of Moose Jaw for the last playoff spot in the East Division. The Broncos have a game in-hand (six games remaining vs Moose Jaw’s five).

    Note: Dominik Masin (OHL Peterborough) is out for the season after undergoing surgery for facial fractures.
