    For a second straight night, the Crunch’s play in the third period lifted them to victory.

    Mike Halmo netted the go-ahead goal less than two minutes into the final frame and the penalty kill kept the Comets off the board the rest of the way, as Syracuse topped Utica, 2-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “They’re a tough team to play. They’re battling hard, they’re engaged and they are tight defensively,” said Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx, whose team rallied for three goals in the third period in a 3-2 win over Rochester Friday. “We had to go deep down to beat them. Big goal from (Halmo) in the third and a strong effort down low by (Yanni Gourde) and Cory (Conacher). It’s a good weekend for us and I like the way we played, especially in the third.”

    Crunch get back on track with 2-0-0 weekend.

    SYR-2
    UTI-1

    Adam Wilcox allowed 1 goal on 24 shots for the victory. Very solid win for young Wilcox with only 2 goals of support to work with. Very impressive.

    18:27 UTI Grenier (4), (Chaput, Subban)(PP)

    Third Period
    1:56 SYR Halmo (3), (Gourde, Conacher)

    Mike Halmo, Cory Conacher, and Wilcox were the game's three stars.

    This weekend ended up being about Syracuse proving they could win low scoring games with defense and goaltending. We know they have the forward depth and firepower to win a track meet, at least on paper. But, to be a really good team they must learn to keep the puck out of the back of their own net, and they went a few steps ahead in proving they can accomplish that this weekend.

    Struggling Gudlevskis roughed up in hard-scrabble Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

    SYR-1

    The Syracuse Crunch surged early and held on in the third period.

    The Crunch scored twice in the opening 8:44, but the the Bruins took advantage of turnovers in the third period. Syracuse was able to hang on for a 3-2 win over Providence at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “Tonight, that game was all about momentum swings,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “I thought we had momentum for 10 or 12 minutes, and then we would turn the puck over in our zone or at the blue line and they would get the momentum for five, six, seven minutes.”

    Needless to say, when you give up a pair of shorthanded goals as a team you probably deserve to lose. For a team this stacked to be sitting at .500 now is a little bit of a splash of cold water. We'll see how the team responds.

    Gabriel Dumont and Michael Bournival were the game's first and third stars.

    Tonight was the first blemish on Syracuse's record and outlined their potential vulnerability. There's little doubt their lineup is significantly deep and talented enough to score a good 3 or 4 goals (at least) a game at the AHL level. The question, particularly when it comes to their goaltending, is whether they have the ability to keep the puck out of their own net. Kristers Gudlevskis has world class athleticism for the goaltending position, but his consistency is still dubious. Can he steadily lead a team on a deep run through the regular season and on toward a championship? Will he even get the chance with cap deals looming up top in Tampa Bay? And, either way, can Adam Wilcox prove a serious option 1A a la Jaroslav Janus during the Norfolk Admirals' championship run not too many moons ago?
