    Tanner Richard was the game's third star.

    Prior to the game the Tampa Bay Lightning suspended Jonathan Drouin for failure to join the Crunch for tonight's game. Drouin's agent issued a statement claiming that the Lightning had told his client that a trade was imminent and that the agent and the player had made the decision to forego further games in the AHL to avoid the risk of injury prior to any trade. The tell in this situation is that the Crunch are playing Toronto tonight, which makes the decision by Drouin and his agent look like a very transparent attempt to create a media feeding frenzy in one of the two biggest media markets in Canada in order to force Steve Yzerman's hand.

    If a trade were close at hand, though, Drouin and Walsh have almost certainly jeopardized it with this stunt. The move is clearly an orchestrated effort to hurt the organization while Drouin also, point blank, gave up on his teammates in both Tampa Bay and Syracuse in the process. Any GM worth their salt will now view Drouin and his baggage (Walsh) with an even more jaundiced eye, harming his value and putting Yzerman in a difficult position. Drouin's trade value may be depressed in the short term by this stunt, perhaps making the prudent course for the Lightning to stand pat and force Drouin to report back to Syracuse, which would also send the correct message in terms of organizational discipline. But, do the Lightning really want a player who has put self interest above the good of his team and organization in such a public display in the locker room in Syracuse, even if Drouin could be forced to show up?

    Rock, meet hard place.

    Fortunately, there is some short term pressure relief in Tampa Bay due to the team's current rise in the standings. Given the team looks resurgent without Drouin, there is less urgency to leverage the player as an asset to help the club up top. So perhaps an extended hiatus for Drouin might not be the worst thing in the world at this moment. In the end, Drouin and Walsh's tantrums aside, the Lightning still hold all the cards in this situation, and they can certainly wait this situation out as long as they please.

    One night after a sluggish start led to a loss, Syracuse stormed out of the gate.

    The Crunch scored three times in the first period, including twice on the power play, and held on despite a late flurry by the Penguins, as Syracuse beat Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, 4-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday. The loss snaps a seven-game winning streak for the Penguins.

    “It was a good 60 minutes,” Crunch head coach Rob Zettler said. “I thought we started well. Our power play was good early, which certainly helped against a team that averages under two goals a game.”

    Your nightly Drouinsanity update: 1 power play assist. Would like to see him shoot the puck more.

    The Crunch's win stopped a 7 game winning streak that Wilkes-Barre/Scranton was on.

    Syracuse got off to a slow start and never quite recovered.

    The Crunch allowed a pair of first-period goals and didn’t find the back of the net until they pulled the goalie for an extra attacker in the final minutes, as Syracuse fell to the Utica Comets, 3-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    For Crunch head coach Rob Zettler, his team didn’t move the puck well, which led to not being able to attack with speed.

    “We came out flat to start, and there was some life in the second and third period, but the start really hurt us,” Zettler said. “We were flat for whatever reason and we weren’t moving pucks out well, and they came out strong and were up 2-0 early.”

    Drouinsanity weekend ends with Syracuse collecting 4 of 6 points.

    SYR-2
    RCH-1

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed just 1 goal on 29 shots for the victory, and was likely the margin in the contest today. He left the game Friday after feeling ill, but evidently got enough Vitamin C in the time between then and tonight.

    First Period
    SYR Tambellini, (16) (Peca), 1:31

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    SYR Ikonen, (2) (Peca, Taormina), 2:27
    RCH Akeson, (7) (Leduc, Pysyk), 9:44 (PP)

    Gudlevskis, Henri Ikonen, and Matthew Peca were the game's three stars.

    It was a quiet night for Drouin as Syracuse, in general, struggled a bit offensively. They were outshot 29-22 on the night, but still pulled out the win.

    The win allowed Syracuse to move up into 4th in the North Division, leapfrogging over both Rochester and the Utica Comets.

    The Syracuse Crunch battled back from a pair of one-goal deficits and then buckled down.

    The Crunch answered the Bears’ goals in the first and second periods, pulled ahead in the third and hung on through some tense moments late, as Syracuse beat Hershey, 4-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “I thought our guys played really hard tonight — harder than we have in a long time,” said Crunch head coach Rob Zettler. “It was great. From top to bottom, I thought everyone was giving us everything they had. … A lot of blocked shots, a lot of hits — just more physically involved over and above the fights.”
