Admirals Game Results

  • 47 weeks 6 days ago

    One good period doesn't pay the bills.

    SYR-1
    WBS-2

    Cedrick Desjardins allowed 2 goals on 21 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    WBS Torquato, (1) (Goers, D'Agostino), 9:15 (PP)

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    WBS Mikkelson, (3) (Goers, Zlobin), 1:58 (PP)
    SYR Rankin, (9) (Richard, Connolly), 18:17

    Syracuse's 13 shots in the Third Period matched their shot total from the previous two periods combined. It's kind of self explanatory from there. The defensive effort was solid, only allowing 21 shots, but you've got to translate that into shots and chances at the other end.

    Your silver lining comes from Brett Connolly, who has points in 8 of his last 10 games and 3 goals and 6 assists in that span. Bear in mind he's not exactly playing with the same supporting cast he had last season, so this is a promising development.

    Syracuse gets Hershey on Friday.

    The Syracuse Crunch netted a pair of power play goals in the first period, but the Binghamton Senators had the last laugh Friday.

    The Senators scored five unanswered goals in the second and third periods -- including the eventual game-winner on a controversial penalty -- as they topped the Crunch, 5-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial.

    For Syracuse coach Rob Zettler, his team got away from the game plan and what the team did well in the first period.

    "We get up by two, and then we think we're a fancy team instead of grinding it out," Zettler said. "We are what we are. We don't have high-end skill on our team. We have to manufacture goals by working hard, getting it deep and trying to plug away down there."

    Even with a hat trick, Crunch can't top Bears.

    SYR-3
    HER-4 (SO)

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 37 shots before allowing 3 of 11 shooters convert in the penalty shot session for the SO loss.

    Shootout
    SYR- Rankin, Paquette
    HER- Stoa, Galiev, Mitchell

    Evan Rankin and Mike Angelidis were the game's first and second stars.

    It should be noted the Syracuse lineup did not include Dana Tyrell or Matt Taormina, both of which were returned by Tampa Bay today, nor did it include the freshly signed and recalled J.P. Cote. So, perhaps tonight's result wasn't all that bad under the circumstances.

    After getting pulled from a game earlier this week, Kristers Gudlevskis was eager to step back into the crease.

    The Syracuse Crunch goalie looked at a few pucks hitting the pipes behind him as a positive omen, and finished with a 27-save shutout in a 1-0 win over the Rochester Americans at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday. The victory snaps a four-game losing streak for Syracuse.

    "When you get those pipes, you start to feel comfortable," the Latvian netminder said. "You start to feel like it's your day. It's a lucky moment, it's help."

    From Latvia with love.

    RCH-0
    SYR-1

    Kristers Gudlevskis stopped all 27 shots he faced for his second shutout of the season. That's a slump buster, right there. Well done.

    First Period
    SYR Connolly, (2) (Korobov, Witkowski), 14:18

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Gudlevskis and Brett Connolly were the game's first and second stars. In the last 7 games, Connolly has 2 goals and 5 points as he continues to come out of his early season funk. It's a good thing.

    Syracuse is 3 points out of the #8 spot in the Eastern Conference with a game in hand on Norfolk after the Admirals' loss to Springfield tonight. Syracuse faces Hershey on Wednesday as they try to maintain contact for a playoff spot while the organization gets healthy and they have the opportunity to reload. Every win right now is a little life line.

    Still sinking.

    SYR-1
    STJ-5

    Cedrick Desjardins allowed 5 goals on 36 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    STJ Kichton, (5) (O'Dell), 12:47

    Second Period
    STJ Redmond, (4) (Jaffray), 2:37
    STJ MacKinnon, (1) (O'Dell), 3:00

    Third Period
    STJ MacKinnon, (2) (O'Dell, Chiarot), 0:24
    SYR Devos, (1) (Korobov), 3:37
    STJ Jaffray, (9) , 17:58 (SH)

    I wouldn't expect this to go on too much longer before some roster changes are made to try to snap Syracuse out of this funk.

    St. John's finally solves SyraNo.

    SYR-2
    STJ-6

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 4 goals on 20 shots for the loss before being lifted for Cedrick Desjardins, who allowed 2 on 27 shots the rest of the way.

    First Period
    STJ Jaffray, (8) (Kichton, Redmond), 8:23 (PP)
    SYR Angelidis, (2) (Paquette), 11:10
    STJ Lowry, (2) (Lipon), 18:03

    Second Period
    STJ Fredheim, (1) (Samson, Mouillierat), 7:05 (PP)
    STJ Schnell, (1) (Redmond), 7:17
    STJ O'Neill, (2) (Redmond, Gordon), 19:50

    Third Period
    SYR Paquette, (7) (Langelier-Parent, Connolly), 9:07
    STJ Klingberg, (7) (MacKinnon, Riley), 19:29

    There's not much to feel positive about from this contest. Syracuse was dominated on the shot board 47-15 and dominated on the scoreboard 6-2. The two teams square off again tomorrow when the Crunch will have a chance at redemption. As an old hockey hand once told me, it's really hard to paste the same team two nights in a row.

    Jesse Blacker broke a tie with less than nine minutes remaining, lifting the Norfolk Admirals over the Syracuse Crunch for a second-straight night, 2-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    The Crunch, who fell in the shootout to the Admirals Friday, spent most of the game rotating through five defensemen, after Jean-Philippe Cote was ejected for an illegal hit to the head at the 11:41 mark of the first period.

    "Cote is a valuable guy," said Syracuse coach Rob Zettler. "One, just having him out of the lineup period is just tough. But playing five D is tough too, especially in back-to-back games."

    Syracuse loses a tight one.

    NOR-2
    SYR-1

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 24 shots for the loss. It's his first AHL loss and it comes in his 7th AHL decision.

    First Period
    NOR Rakell, (8) (Blacker, Gagne), 15:14 (PP)

    Second Period
    SYR Neilson, (1) (Langelier-Parent, Korobov), 4:47

    Third Period
    NOR Blacker, (4) (Friberg, Yonkman), 11:48

    Eric Neilson was the game's second star.

    There are no moral victories in professional sports, but it's interesting to note that as depleted as Syracuse is they played pretty much even with a decent Norfolk team. That speaks to the character and coaching of the team, in my opinion. Syracuse faces St. John's next on Tuesday.
