    Despite having a two goal lead early in the third period, the Syracuse Crunch couldn't hold on.

    The Flames scored twice in the final 14 minutes of regulation and Ken Agostino netted the game-winner 39 seconds into overtime, as Adirondack beat Syracuse, 5-4, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    "We lack the discipline to play a tighter game late in the third period," said Crunch head coach Rob Zettler. "They wanted to open up and we seemed like we wanted to go right along with that ride and open it up a little bit. Instead of clamping down and making smart plays throughout he neutral zone, we failed to do that."

    Snake bitten and still struggling.

    ADK-5
    SYR-4 (OT)

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 5 goals on 34 shots for the OT loss. After getting his save percentage up as high as .906, Gudlevskis' recent struggles have dropped him back down to the goaltending Mendoza line of .900.

    First Period
    SYR Vermin, (12) (Peca, Koekkoek), 4:39
    ADK Poirier, (18) , Reinhart, 19:16

    Second Period
    SYR Point, (2) (Marchessault, Kunyk), 0:47
    SYR Gourde, (29) (Point, Ikonen), 4:52
    ADK Yonkman, (2) (Tousignant, Harris), 16:24

    Third Period
    SYR Marchessault, (24) (Dotchin, Peca), 3:29
    ADK Wolf, (20) (Kulak), 13:43
    ADK Elson, (17) , 16:31

    Overtime
    ADK Agostino, (14) (Kulak, Arnold), 0:39

    Jonathan Marchessault and Brayden Point were the game's first and third stars. Throw in that Matthew Peca had his first multi-point night as a pro, and you had a hat trick of important Lightning forward prospects producing. Therein lies the silver lining of tonight's loss: the offense is starting to come around, finally. That doesn't take all the sting out of coughing up a pair of 2 goal leads, but it's something.

    Syracuse sits 2 points behind Hartford for the division lead, which will yield the East #3 seed in the playoffs.

    Sinking ship.

    SYR-2
    ALB-6

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 6 goals on 24 shots. Ugly.

    First Period
    SYR Gourde, (28) , 3:41
    ALB Whitney, (21) (Lorito, Scarlett), 16:51

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period

    ALB Thomson, (8) , 1:57
    ALB Whitney, (22) (Burlon, Lorito), 7:33 (PP)

    ALB Matteau, (11) (Lorito, Hrabarenka), 16:16
    SYR Richard, (13) (Ashton), 18:52 (PP)

    The team just dissolved in the Third Period. What a catastrophe.

    Tight, costly loss.

    SYR-1
    UTI-2

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 26 shots for the hard luck loss, as Syracuse continues to struggle to manufacture any goal support.

    First Period
    SYR Lynch, (3) (Point), 7:55

    Second Period
    UTI Shinkaruk, (16) (O'Reilly, Sanguinetti), 4:45 (PP)
    UTI Conacher, (10) (O'Reilly, Shinkaruk), 15:21 (PP)

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Stabbed in the back by ex Bolt Prospect Cory Conacher. Say it ain't so.

    With Hartford winning again today, the Wolf Pack have tied Syracuse for the division lead in points, pushing the Crunch down to the 5th seed (hopefully temporarily). Presumably, the team will start to get some roster stability starting this week once the Lightning start returning to full strength for the playoffs. That may just mean that Witkowski gets returned to Syracuse, but hopefully it means no more shuttling of players back and forth for a little while and the offense can begin to rebuild some continuity.

    One night after a come-from-behind win, the Syracuse Crunch just didn't have the same third period magic.

    The Crunch, who scored three unanswered goals to top the Sound Tigers in overtime Friday, controlled play throughout most of the first period but went into the intermission trailing by one. Springfield turned the tables in the second and Syracuse's comeback fell short, as the Crunch lost to the Falcons, 3-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    "I thought we started the game really well," said Crunch head coach Rob Zettler. "I thought we were skating and generating a lot of chances in the first. In the second, they flipped it on us, and they had most of the momentum and were creating chances. In the third, we held play in their end but weren't generating any chances. For whatever reason there were opportunities but they didn't turn into good scoring chances for us."

    Division title in peril.

    SPR-3
    SYR-1

    Adam Wilcox allowed 3 goals on 30 shots for the loss in his professional debut.

    First Period
    SYR Blujus, (3) (Martindale, Gourde), 11:21 (PP)
    SPR Tynan, (12) (Pinkston, Vogelhuber), 14:05
    SPR Anderson, (7) (Milano, St. Denis), 18:01

    Second Period
    SPR Tynan, (13) (Collins, Milano), 12:05 (PP)

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Dylan Blujus was the game's third star.

    It wasn't surprising the team struggled to score with Jonathan Marchessault on emergency recall to Tampa with Jonathan Drouin under the weather. Losing Marchessault essentially guts the Crunch of the engine that makes their offense go. The good news is Drouin and a slew of other injured Lightning players will be back when the playoffs start next week, so I would expect Marchessault and Witkowski, at a minimum, to be back with the Crunch for the rest of their run this year.

    Syracuse's lead in the division slipped to 2 points over Hartford with the loss.

    Jonathan Marchessault netted a goal in the first minute and provided the offensive spark late.

    The forward had a hand in every goal and the Crunch scored three unanswered goals after the second intermission, as Syracuse rallied past the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, 4-3, in overtime at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    "I thought he was the best player on the ice, in fact it wasn't even close in my mind," said Crunch head coach Rob Zettler of Marchessault, who finished with a goal and three assists. "He competed, he was really good offensively, he competed defensively, and he was the difference for us."

    Comeback bid comes close to paying off.

    SYR-2
    BRI-3

    Allen York allowed 3 goals on 26 shots for the loss. Again, paging Adam Wilcox?

    First Period
    BRI Mouillierat, (21) (Halmo, Collberg), 17:49

    Second Period
    BRI Pulock, (16) (Quine, Ness), 3:47 (PP)

    SYR Lynch, (2) (Peca, Dodero), 7:34
    BRI Sundstrom, (7) (Pulock, Quine), 14:50 (PP)

    One thing about the Crunch this year, when changes to the roster have come it's taken a few games for them to adjust. Once they do, though, it's lights out. So, I expect Syracuse to settle in here, soon, and especially when they get Koekkoek and Witkowski back from Tampa Bay. They could be frightening when that happens, especially if they get more good goaltending from Gudlevskis and possibly Wilcox.

    Matthew Peca got his first pro point on a fantastic setup on what was, at the time, the tying goal at 2-2 for the Crunch.

    Syracuse remains 4 points up on Hartford in the division with both teams having 6 games left on the regular season slate.

    Epic Third Period collapse.

    SYR-4
    HFD-6

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 4 goals on 29 shots before giving way to Allen York who allowed 1 on 2 shots for the back door loss. Looooots of goaltender speculation on the Twitter box tonight. Paging Adam Wilcox.

    First Period
    SYR Vermin, (11) , 6:56
    SYR Gourde, (27) (Mormina, Cote), 7:47

    Second Period
    HFD Haggerty, (14) , 6:50
    SYR Martindale, (14) (Marchessault, Nightingale), 18:47

    Third Period
    HFD Hrivik, (10) (Haggerty, Kristo), 3:55 (PP)
    SYR Martindale, (15) (Gourde), 4:14 (SH)
    HFD Vaive, (13) (Bodie, Lindberg), 8:00 (PP)

    HFD Hrivik, (11) (Hughes, R. Bourque), 15:44
    HFD Mueller, (13) , 19:32 (EN/PP)

    Ryan Martindale was the game's second star.

    Matthew Peca was scoreless in his pro debut in the game.

    Syracuse clinched a playoff spot despite the loss, due to Albany's shootout win over Springield.
