    53 shots were still not enough for the Crunch.

    LV-3
    SYR-2 (SO)

    Adam Wilcox allowed 2 goals on 30 shots before allowing 1 of 3 shooters to convert in the penalty shot session for the SO loss.

    First Period

    LV Martel, (20) (Lamarche, Palushaj), 3:15

    Shootout
    LV- Leier
    SYR- NONE

    Wilcox and Mike Blunden were the game's second and third stars.

    Syracuse outshot the Phantoms 48-30 in regulation, but it still took a Tye McGinn goal with just 30 seconds to go in the Third Period just for the Crunch to salvage a point from the game. The final shot advantage was 53-31 on a frustrating night where the Crunch probably deserved better.

    The Syracuse Crunch seemed to throw everything they could at the net.

    The Crunch registered 53 shots on goal and controlled the play for long stretches, but needed a goal with the extra attacker on in the final minute of regulation to send the game to overtime. Led by Phantoms goalie Anthony Stolarz, Lehigh Valley prevailed over Syracuse in a shootout, 3-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Wednesday.

    “I wish we would have gotten the two points tonight. We sorely need them,” Crunch head coach Rob Zettler said. “I’m happy with our guys’ effort. The process was good, the details were good, but the outcome was not what we wanted.”

    Syracuse’s Mike Blunden finished with a goal and an assist. Tye McGinn added one goal, and Jeff Tambellini, Anthony DeAngelo, and Adam Erne each had one assist.

They’re tied with East-leading Shawinigan for the No. 2 overall seed entering the playoffs. Chabot was one of the players rumored to be a possible Drouin-to-Ottawa deal. He's a future top-pair, 2-way defenseman.

    KHL Eastern Conference Quarterfinals
    (2)Magnitogorsk 4 vs. (7)Ekaterinburg 2
    Magnitogorsk Leads the Series 3-2
    Vasily Koshechkin, Magnitogorsk, DNP
    Playoff totals: 2 GP, 2-0-0, 2 SO, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 sv%
    Regular season totals: 50 GP, 22-15-9, 4 SO, 2.12 GAA, .925 sv%

    Caps first rounder Ilya Samsonov allowed 2 goals on 25 shots in Magnitogorsk's critical 4-2 Game Five win over Ekaterinburg. Long time KHL star Danis Zaripov led the way for Magnitka with 1 goal and 3 points. Defenseman Alexei Vasilevskiy, brother of Andrei, again had a goal for Ekaterinburg in defeat.

  • 12 weeks 22 hours ago

    Another workmanlike effort puts the Lightning into a 1st place tie in the Atlantic.

    TB-2
    TOR-1

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 1 goal on 32 shots for the victory. After struggling to find the right formula for keeping Vasiy sharp and developing earlier in the year, the Lightning organization appears to have figured it out. His spot starts with Syracuse have been working and he was sharp as a Ginsu again this evening.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    4:53 TB Johnson(10), (Kucherov, Coburn)
    15:28 TB Johnson(11), (unassisted)

    Third Period
    17:45 TOR Kadri(12), (Rielly, Gardiner)

    Tyler Johnson and Vasilevskiy were the game's first and second stars.

    The Lightning played a pretty strong road First Period and probably deserved to have a 1-2 goal lead coming out of the opening frame. But, with Garret Sparks playing well and getting plenty of luck from his friend the iron, the Lightning couldn't quite build up the big margin through 40 minutes, and come the Third Period they were running on fumes against a younger, fresher team. But, at no point did they panic. They played a poised game and they protected the lead and got the 2 points.

    The Lightning's big playoff acquisition: the healthy return of Jason Garrison. It was not a moment too soon, either, with Andrej Sustr leaving the game in the Second Period with an unspecified malady.

    With the victory, the Lightning have tied the Panthers at 78 points for the top spot in the Atlantic, with the Panthers holding a game in hand. The Lightning also have picked up 6 points so far in this 10-game segment of the season, meaning they have 7 more games to pick up the remaining 6 points they need to hit that minimum target of 12 points. In other words, they've set themselves up nicely to potentially build some padding in the standings for the first time this year. And, now that the calendar is flipping over to March, that's exactly what you want.

    Nikita Nesterov had 2 penalty minutes, 3 shots, and 3 hits in 15:03. That's Nikita's 40th game of the season, meaning his next appearance will graduate him from prospect status on the website. Marchessault's still got a decent chance to get to graduation this year, but that's about it. It's a far cry from where the Lightning were three years ago with rookies becoming NHL'ers left and right.
