    Tough weekend ends with SO loss.

    SYR-3
    RCH-4 (SO)

    Adam Wilcox allowed 3 goals on 40 shots but allowed both shooters to light the lamp in the penalty shot session for the SO loss. With news coming down today that Kevin Poulin cleared waivers, a provocative question about where Wilcox will be getting starts in the near future begs asking. Vasilevskiy will soon be back with Tampa Bay, pushing Gudlevskis back down to Syracuse and potentially making the best move for the organization finding Wilcox a place to get a starting role in the ECHL. He needs playing time to develop, and I don't see that happening as quickly with sparing appearances in a crowded crease situation in Syracuse.

    The last-minute rally provided little consolation.

    The Crunch netted a pair of goals in the final 57 seconds but couldn’t overcome their struggles in the second period and on special teams, as Syracuse fell to the Hartford Wolf Pack, 4-3, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “We had flurries late, but the damage should have been done in the first period,” said Crunch head coach Rob Zettler. “We failed to take advantage of two 5-on-3s. They got a 5-on-3 and they took advantage of it. That ended up being the difference in my mind.”

    Not as close as the score indicates.

    HFD-4
    SYR-3

    Adam Wilcox allowed 3 goals on 34 shots for the loss. They'd have been completely run out of the building without him. As it was, he gave them only a tiny glimmer of hope with several solid stops.

    First Period
    HFD Graves, (1) (Bourque, Oleksuk), 3:33
    SYR Marchessault, (3) (DeAngelo, Vermin), 5:58 (PP)

    Second Period
    HFD Tambellini, (3) (Gibbons, Megna), 12:42
    HFD Tambellini, (4) (Hrivik, Bodie), 18:46 (PP)

    Third Period
    HFD Nehring, (3) (Glass, Graves), 17:14 (EN)
    SYR Blujus, (1) (Peca, McGinn), 19:03
    SYR Peca, (2) (Blunden, Gourde), 19:58 (PP)

    Wilcox was the game's second star. The wrong Tambellini got first star.

    You can't even call it a false hope goal when you get it cut to 1 goal deficit with less than a second left.

    SYR-2
    HFD-5

    Adam Wilcox allowed 4 goals on 32 shots for the loss in his season debut. So Gudlevskis starts the season the clear top dog in the crease.

    Matthew Peca potted his first goal and first point of the season. He's an important piece if Syracuse is going to improve on last season's performance.

    Jeff Tambellini made quite the impression in his first game at home with the Syracuse Crunch.

    The veteran scored 16 seconds into the game and netted the game winner in the final minutes of regulation, as the Crunch topped the Binghamton Senators, 2-1, in the home opener at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “That’s what I’m always trying to bring with my game in pro hockey is an elite level shot, and I got to use it twice tonight,” Tambellini said. “Great play by our winger, (Adam) Erne, on the first one, and the second one the guys battled hard and I was in the right spot. A lot goes into what created those.”

    Tambellini leads the way.

    BNG-1
    SYR-2

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 1 goal on 28 shots for the win. He was good tonight, and Syracuse needed him to be. As always, the question with Gudlevskis is going to be one of consistency and whether he can keep performing at the level he has through the first couple of games.

    First Period
    SYR Tambellini, (1) (Erne, Blujus), 0:16

    Second Period
    BNG Schneider, (1) , 4:58 (SH)

    Third Period
    SYR Tambellini, (2) (DeAngelo, Blunden), 17:43

    Jeff Tambellini and Gudlevskis were the game's first and second stars.

    Adam Erne picked up his first point of the year assisting on the opening goal while Anthony DeAngelo has helpers in each of his first two games as a pro.

    Crunch hang on for opening night win.

    SYR-4
    LV-3

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 29 shots for the victory. He didn't have a ton of work in the first half of the game, but made a handful of key stops at key moments in the second half of the contest to preserve the win, including a big glove stop at the end of the Third Period.

    Jonathan Marchessault and Dylan Blujus were the game's first and second stars.

    It was kind of a tale of two games tonight, with Syracuse looking dominant in the first part of the game, only allowing the Phantoms chances on the odd unforced turnover and on the man advantage. They established a 4-1 lead in the Second Period and it had the look of a laugher, but they allowed Lehigh Valley to stick around and eventually spent the bulk of the Third Period protecting the dreaded 2 goal lead. They had a handful of very good forechecking shifts in the final frame to take some of the pressure off, but in the end it was a lot closer than it should have been.

    Snap decision on this iteration of the Crunch is that they're very similar to last year's edition. Not surprising. They have decent speed but didn't look terribly threatening off the rush. Their bread and butter is still going to be the cycle and manufacturing those greasy goals, punctuated by the occasional laser beam from Marchessault (who was lethal tonight from the slot). With only one PP opportunity on the night, it's too early to judge if their extra man unit will be better than the travesty they called a power play last season.

    As for the key newcomers, I thought Matthew Peca played a nice, responsible two-way game. He wasn't able to flash on the rush as I'd have expected, but I'm sure that'll come. Anthony DeAngelo got a helper for his first AHL point, but didn't get a chance to flash his offensive skill much in the game. Defensively, he reminds me a bit of Paul Ranger when Ranger was a rookie pro. That is to say, he's in the right zip code positionally, and even though he's not in perfect spots he's mobile enough to close the gap quickly. If he's anything like Ranger, he'll get sharper in that aspect as time goes on. Adam Erne had one very poor tripping penalty, but also showed a lot of the qualities that make him a valued prospect. He hits to hurt and he was very good on the cycle and on the forecheck in the Third Period as Syracuse was nursing the lead.

    Down to the final buzzer, the Syracuse Crunch couldn't find a way out of their slump.

    The Crunch tied the score late in the first period but the Penguins finished with three power play goals and goalie Matt Murray shut the door with 33 saves, as Wilkes-Barre/Scranton beat Syracuse, 5-2, in Game 3 the Eastern Conference quarterfinals at the Onondaga County War Memorial Wednesday.

    The Crunch lost 12 of their final 13 games and was swept 3-0 in the series.

    "I thought we had a great run up until the last three weeks of the season," said Crunch head coach Rob Zettler. "I didn't see a lot of ups and downs. I saw a pretty consistent hockey team that won a lot of games and worked extremely hard and played really well."
