    The power play allowed Syracuse to climb back in the game and the Crunch completed the comeback in overtime.

    The Crunch rallied from a three-goal deficit in the second period and Dylan Blujus drove to the net to pot a rebound 1:59 into the extra session, as the Crunch topped the Toronto Marlies, 5-4, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “I was honestly just going through the middle and the rebound came right to my stick,” Blujus said of his overtime goal. “I was a little surprised and I had an open net from there.”

    Crunch overcome turkey coma to clip Marlies in OT.

    SYR-5 (OT)

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 4 goals on 30 shots for the OT win.

    First Period
    3:41 TOR Kapanen (9), (Greening, Holl)
    12:46 TOR Froese (9), (Leipsic)

    Second Period
    1:01 TOR Greening (3), (Clune)(SH)
    2:10 SYR Morin (1), (Taormina, Comrie)(PP)
    5:07 SYR Vermin (4), (Darcy, Peca)(PP)
    5:42 SYR Bournival (5), (Masin)
    15:00 TOR Rychel (3), (Leipsic, Valiev)(PP)
    15:23 SYR Taormina (3), (Bournival, Letourneau-Leblond)

    Third Period

    1:59 SYR Blujus (1), (Walcott, Gourde)

    Dylan Blujus and Gudlevskis were the game's first and third stars.

    The Crunch having an early Thanksgiving hangover and falling behind 3-0 early at home was predictable but unacceptable. That was the theme of the night throughout the Lightning organization, by the way: the home Thanksgiving hangover. Fortunately, Syracuse showed a lot of resiliency in roaring back to life in the Second Period before Blujus eventually scored the winning goal in his return from injury. It's kind of a shame that Blujus got nicked up when he did given the injuries the Lightning have up top, because looking at his timetable he should be close to earning his first cup of coffee with the Lightning.

    Syracuse pulls to within 3 points of the division lead with 2 games in hand on Albany. If they can go on a little run, first place seems there for the taking.

    Crunch get Demko'ed.


    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on just 15 shots for the loss. He found himself in a goaltending duel and couldn't help covert Syracuse's 32-15 shot surplus into a win.

    First Period
    8:45 UTI Grenier (6), (Bancks, Valk)(PP)

    Second Period
    11:15 UTI Hulak (4), (Carcone)
    13:58 SYR Richard (6), (Vermin)

    Third Period

    Tanner Richard extended his goal scoring streak to four games. So, there was that.

    Syracuse dips to 4th in the North Division in points with the loss. They'll get back to it Friday at home against Toronto.

    Erik Condra darted to the front of the net knowing time was almost up.

    The Crunch forward calmly slid the puck to his backhand and scored with 1.9 seconds remaining, as Syracuse topped the Albany Devils, 3-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “I knew there wasn’t a lot of time left, so they kind of backed up when I was getting to the neutral zone,” Condra said. “Joel (Vermin) cut to the middle, I gave it to him, and I don’t know how he kept the puck moving through three or four guys, but he did. I snuck around the pile and put it in.”

    Crunch strafed in Hershey.


    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 18 shots for the loss before giving way to Adam Wilcox, who allowed 2 goals on 4 shots the rest of the way. Simply a dreadful night for the entire team, but particularly for the netminders.

    First Period
    8:03 HER Vrana (8), (Bourque, Djoos)
    12:34 HER Thomas (5), (Djoos, Stephenson)(PP)
    14:36 HER Bourque (3), (Stephenson, Mitchell)

    0:33 SYR Richard (4), (Conacher, Taormina)

    Third Period
    15:49 HER Thomas (6), (O'Brien, Stephenson)(PP)
    19:29 HER Bourque (4), (Djoos, Carey)(PP)

    With injuries up top in Tampa Bay, there are opportunities to earn call ups on the line. So, it's disappointing to see the team start flat and get run out of the game early. It's frankly not acceptable.

    Tanner Richard netted his first goal of the season and the next two followed quickly.

    The Crunch center rushed down on a 2-on-1, pulled up to avoid a sprawling defenseman and buried the puck over the goalie’s shoulder. Richard’s goal with 24 seconds remaining capped his first career hat trick, as Syracuse routed the Rochester Americans, 7-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “The puck was in the neutral zone and (Michael) Bournival set up a perfect trap for them, and then (Erik) Condra kind of touched it to me,” Richard said. “I wanted to go backdoor all the way — I think everyone in the building knew that — and the D-man slid to take it away, so I figured I may as well take a shot.”

    Crunch put up a touchdown and an extra point.


    Adam Wilcox allowed 2 goals on 31 shots while drinking from the cool, clear waters of sweet, sweet goal support for the win.

    First Period
    2:46 SYR Peca (4), (Condra, Walcott)
    12:07 RCH Geiger (1), (Nylander, Muzito-Bagenda)

    19:36 SYR Richard (3), (Condra, Bournival)

    Tanner Richard, Yanni Gourde, and Matthew Peca were the game's three stars. All hail Tanner Richard, your Dark Swiss Overlord of Garbage Time Hat Tricks. After a less than stellar training camp and difficult start to the season. Richard now has points in consecutive games and hopefully will take off from here. Also good to see youngsters like Peca and Adam Erne find the scoresheet. This is a veteran dominated team, but these talented youngsters are the ones who are going to push this team over the top. Also, congratulations to defenseman Dominik Masin on his first pro point.

    The Syracuse Crunch rallied to earn one point, but couldn’t nab the second.

    The Crunch registered two goals in the final 3:51 of regulation to send the game to overtime, but the Bridgeport Sound Tigers prevailed, 3-2, in a shootout at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “You can’t expect to win when you work five minutes in a game,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “I thought our forwards didn’t compete hard tonight, they didn’t skate. It’s disappointing obviously. We left a point on the table.”
