    Vasiy en fuego.

    SYR-2
    ALB-1 (SO)

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 1 goal on 36 shots before stopping 10 of 10 shooters in the penalty shot session for the SO victory. His save percentage rises to .923 and I don't know how he wasn't named all three of the game's stars after helping his team to overcome a 36-26 shot deficit.

    Shootout
    SYR- Lynch
    ALB- NONE

    Vasilevskiy and Vladislav Namestnikov were the game's first and second stars.

    Such a sloppy effort by the Crunch tonight, but Vasilevskiy was the ultimate eraser for the odd man rushes the team surrendered, helping them to snap a 3 game losing streak in the process.

    The Crunch scrambled back into a tie with Springfield atop the division at 46 points heading into tomorrow's matchup with Bingo.

    A power play worse than Tampa Bay's.

    SYR-1
    RCH-4

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 27 shots for the loss. The number looks ugly, but I can't be mad about any of the three goals. The first was a clean faceoff loss and a seeing eye point shot through a ton of traffic. Second goal was a breakaway after an awful Gourde turnover where Kristers got the first shot but got beat on the rebound. Third goal was a 2-on-1 where Blujus failed to block the pass across and Blunden couldn't catch up to the goal scorer.

    First Period
    SYR Koekkoek, (2) (Kunyk, Gourde), 7:58
    RCH Leduc, (2) (Varone), 16:41

    Second Period
    RCH Reid, (5) , 7:42
    RCH Dalpe, (6) (Schaller, Bagnall), 11:34 (SH)

    Third Period
    RCH Irwin, (4) (Ellis), 18:40 (EN)

    Syracuse was 0-for-8 on the power play. Unlike Tampa Bay, though, which has plenty of finishers, I think the Crunch suffer from having only 1 or 2 pure finishers like Marchessault. As a consequence, they should be playing more of a shot/rebound style of basic PP, but that's not what they seemed interested in doing today.

    The beasts of the Northeast square off.

    SYR-2
    SPR-3 (OT)

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 3 goals on 33 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    SPR Adam, (10) (Labrie, Tyrell), 0:39
    SYR Namestnikov, (6) (Mormina, Smith), 14:48

    Second Period
    SYR Angelidis, (12) (Gourde, Marchessault), 17:32
    SPR Adam, (11) (Sifers, St. Denis), 18:17

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Overtime
    SPR Urban, (2) (Madaisky, Adam), 3:10 (PP)

    Mike Angelidis was the game's third star.

    Springfield now holds a 2 point lead on Syracuse in the Northeast Division after the victory. Syracuse does, however, hold a game in hand on the Falcons.

    By the time the Syracuse Crunch scored its first goal, the hole was simply too deep to climb out of.

    The Crunch scored twice in the final 11:15 but an empty-netter sealed the win for the Sharks, as Worcester snapped Syracuse's 10-game winning streak with a 4-2 win at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    "We didn't come out the way we wanted," said Crunch forward Yanni Gourde. "We started late in the third period playing our way, and we can't do that against any team in this league."

    All good things...

    WOR-4
    SYR-2

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 22 shots for the loss. That snaps a streak of 4 starts where he allowed 2 or fewer goals. It should be noted Gudlevskis did also turn away a First Period penalty shot, as well.

    At the end of a tiring 3-on-3 shift, Jonathan Marchessault found another burst of energy.

    The Crunch forward kicked it an extra gear, turned the corner on a Devils defender, and threw the puck to the front of the net. Vladislav Namestnikov deposited the puck past Scott Wedgewood, who was already down, as Syracuse topped Albany, 3-2, 4:16 into overtime for the Crunch's 10th straight win at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    "They were tired also," Marchessault said. "So we had to take advantage of it and we had the puck possession. Let's try something and it ended up pretty good."

    The streak continues.

    The Syracuse Crunch netted a pair of power play goals in a 3-2 victory over the Albany River Rats in the final game before the holiday break at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday. The nine-game win streak is the longest the franchise has had in its three years affiliated with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

    Syracuse leads the Northeast Division and is second overall in the Eastern Conference. While the Crunch would like to keep the momentum rolling, they are welcoming a short rest.

    "They deserve it," Syracuse head coach Rob Zettler said of the break. "These guys played very hard. You could see it out there. It was a chippy, kind of nasty game, but I think our players played hard and they deserve the five days."

    The yak is still on the loose.

    SYR-2
    HFD-0

    Kristers Gudlevskis stopped all 24 shots he faced for the victory and his first shutout of the campaign. He's won his last 4 starts allowing just 3 total goals in the last 3 of those starts, while running his season save percentage back up to .906 in the process. Now things get very interesting in Syracuse, once Vasilevskiy returns, because this is what we expected coming into the year. These are two of the best prospect netminders around, and they'll be in a knock-down, drag-out for starts all season long. The competition is going to push both guys to play better than they ever thought possible. It's going to be great to see unfold.

    Gudlevskis and Tanner Richard were the game's first and second stars. As of this posting, Richard's +18 mark is second best in the AHL behind the +21 of Manchester's Nick Shore. I should also point out that, on top of the game winning helper he had tonight, Nikita Nesterov hasn't had a minus game in a full month, when he had a -1 outing on 11/19 against Hartford. He's been +9 since that game, taking him up to +9 for the year. He was -2 last year and the 13 points he has in 28 games this season is 3 off the 16 he posted as a rookie in 54 games last season. So, like Richard, here's a player who had some holes in his game who seems to be rounding the corner a bit. Nice to see. Slater Koekkoek, oh by the way, has helpers in 3 of the last 4 games.

    Tomorrow, Syracuse draws Albany at home.
