    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?

    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.

    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.

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

    Second Period

    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.

    With a chance to clinch a playoff berth, the Syracuse Crunch came up just short.

    Albany lost in Manchester and Syracuse battled back from a pair of deficits, but the Crunch couldn't convert on five power play opportunities -- including one in overtime -- as they fell to the Binghamton Senators, 3-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Wednesday.

    "There were significant opportunities both ways," said Syracuse head coach Rob Zettler. "At the end of the day, we couldn't get one on the power play. We had a chance 4-on-3 in overtime and we couldn't get it past him. We definitely had our chances to win it, we just couldn't. I was happy with the effort and I was happy with the chances, we just couldn't finish it off."

    Crunch lose a tight one with reinforcements on the way.

    BNG-3
    SYR-2 (OT)

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 32 shots for the OT loss. He made several key stops to allow the Crunch to secure 1 point in the contest.

    First Period
    BNG Prince, (24) (Camper), 4:05
    SYR Angelidis, (20) (Courtnall, Vermin), 12:32
    BNG Camper, (14) (Schneider, A. Grant), 17:53 (PP)

    Second Period
    SYR Martindale, (13) (Marchessault), 1:23

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Gudlevskis was the game's third star.

    Syracuse has already lost Namestnikov and three regular defensemen to recall because of various injuries up top in Tampa Bay. They've gotten a little help with the signing of Brayden Point to an ATO and bringing the likes of Jared Nightingale back into the fold for a spell. They're about to get even more reinforcements, though, with today's signing of forward Matthew Peca and the word that goaltender Adam Wilcox is also likely to sign with the Lightning and may be assigned to Syracuse, as well. If they can get Koekkoek and Witkowski, at least, back from Tampa Bay and the likes of Tanner Richard back from injury, this could take a decent Syracuse roster to the level of a reasonable title contender in the playoffs. If one or two other active junior players can also join in the fun, all the better.

    Brayden Point understands it's a learning experience.

    The 19-year-old center was admittedly nervous but settled in during his professional debut with the Crunch, but Syracuse fell to the Rochester Americans, 2-0, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    "There are definitely some shifts where our line was able to control the puck down low for a bit, but, like I said, there's a lot to learn," Point said. "I'm just going to try to soak up as much as I can from my linemates and the guys on the bench, and hopefully keep getting better."

    Makaroved.

    RCH-2
    SYR-0

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 1 goal on 24 shots for the hard luck loss. His save percentage has inched up to .906 for the season, despite the loss.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period

    Third Period
    RCH McPherson, (2) (Catenacci, Ruhwedel), 4:04
    RCH Catenacci, (12) , 19:52 (EN)

    Gudlevskis was the game's second star. First star Andrey Makarov, who was Andrei Vasilevkiy's tandem-mate with the Russian U20 WJC team once upon a time, stopped 32 shots for the shutout.

    ATO signee Brayden Point was -2 with 3 SOG's in his pro debut. As noted yesterday, there are a handful of other potential ATO's which could be added to the Syracuse roster this week, including graduating Quinnipiac senior forward Matthew Peca.

    The loss, coupled with Hershey's win, puts Syracuse back into the 3rd seed, 1 point back of the Bears. 9 games remain on the regular season slate.

    After missing one game, Mike Angelidis was excited to rejoin the lineup.

    The Crunch captain notched a power play goal less than three minutes into the game, added an assist on the eventual game-winner, and provided some key defensive shifts in the closing minutes, as Syracuse topped the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, 4-3, in a physical contest at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    The Crunch has won three straight and seven out of their last eight to take over second place in the Eastern Conference.

    "He got us going with a power play goal to start off with and he just keeps doing what he's doing," said Syracuse head coach Rob Zettler. "He's competitive and we need that competitiveness. When a game like this happens, I need him to settle things down for us and that's what he's able to do."

    Peaking at the right time?

    BRI-3
    SYR-4

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 41 shots for the victory. Bridgeport made a big push in the Third Period, outshooting Syracuse 19-7 and getting a couple of goals, but Gudlevskis was ultimately able to get Syracuse over the finish line to secure the win.

    First Period
    SYR Angelidis, (19) (Ashton, Gourde), 2:41 (PP)
    BRI Quine, (19) (Mayfield, Pelech), 15:36

    Second Period
    SYR Martindale, (12) (Kunyk, Marchessault), 3:06
    SYR Dotchin, (6) (Mormina, Marchessault), 14:31 (PP)

    Third Period
    BRI Jeffrey, (22) (Ness), 5:21
    SYR Vermin, (10) (Courtnall, Angelidis), 9:48
    BRI McMillan, (3) (Sundstrom, Vaughan), 17:26

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

    The game got a little nasty in the Second Period, with matching ejections that led to Carter Ashton's early departure from the game for being involved in a secondary altercation.

    Note that none of the Crunch's recent ATO signees, including highly touted Brayden Point, made their debuts tonight. More additions could be on the way with goaltender Adam Wilcox and Minnesota already knocked out of the NCAA Tournament tonight and Matthew Peca's Quinnipiac Bobcats down 3-0 early in the Second Period at the time of this posting. Both highly touted prospects could possibly make an immediate contribution at the AHL level.

    Syracuse leapfrogs over Hershey into the second seed with the win. They're 4 points behind Manchester for the top spot in the conference (and the league) with the Monarchs holding a game in hand. The Crunch have 10 games left in the regular season, which is a nice time to go on a tear like the current, ongoing 4 game winning streak.

    Phantoms never had a ghost of a chance.

    SYR-6
    LV-1

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 1 goal on 28 shots for the victory. He's won 5 straight starts and put together 4 straight quality starts in the process. His save percentage has steadily risen to .904 and he's building up confidence necessary for a solid playoff run.

    First Period
    SYR Mormina, (4) (Kunyk), 11:46 (SH)

    Second Period
    SYR Marchessault, (20) , 8:45
    SYR Koekkoek, (5) (Martindale, Gourde), 10:56

    Third Period
    SYR Marchessault, (21) , 2:19 (SH)
    SYR Courtnall, (7) (Vermin), 4:47
    SYR Martindale, (11) (Courtnall, Dotchin), 8:12
    LV Jones, (7) (Comrie, Gordon), 9:22 (PP)

    Jonathan Marchessault, Justin Courtnall, and Gudlevskis were the game's three stars. Marchessault is currently tied for 6th in the league in scoring. Courtnall's got 5 points and a +5 rating in 7 games since joining the Crunch. At this rate, maybe the Lightning should've signed him the first run through the organization?

    It's been a long road, but Syracuse has closed back within 1 point of Hershey for the 2nd seed in the conference. For the longest time, they looked to be locked into the 3 seed, but they're playing themselves into a spot to challenge for better position.
