    Division title in peril.


    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

    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.


    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)

    Third Period

    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.


    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

    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.

    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.

    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

    BNG Wideman, (17) (Dzingel), 3:06

    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."

    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

    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."
