    The Syracuse Crunch can finally breathe a sigh of relief.

    Cedric Paquette scored with less than five minutes remaining in regulation to lift Syracuse past the St. John's IceCaps, 4-2, snapping the Crunch's five-game losing streak at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    "I told them 'We are what we are, you game it out and play the right way and let the chips fall, and the result will take care of itself,'" said Crunch coach Rob Zettler.

    I hate all teams named "Bulldogs".

    HAM-3
    SYR-0

    Cedrick Desjardins allowed 3 goals on 33 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    HAM Thomas, (1) (St. Pierre, Beaulieu), 1:29 (PP)
    HAM Pateryn, (4) (Schiestel, Leblanc), 7:18 (PP)

    Third Period
    HAM Beaulieu, (2) (St. Pierre, Thomas), 6:47 (PP)

    Nikita Nesterov was the game's third star.

    Evidently hell hath no fury like Dusting Tokarski scorned. Tic stopped 43 shots in the blanking of his former teammates.

    Syracuse gets Binghamton on Wednesday. They've now dropped to 7th in the Eastern Conference.

    While Syracuse failed to convert on six power play chances, the Hamilton Bulldogs cashed in three times to hand the Crunch its fourth-straight loss, 3-0, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    Former Tampa Bay Lightning prospect Dustin Tokarski stopped all 43 Crunch shots for his first shutout of the season with Hamilton.

    "He played really well," said Syracuse defenseman Matt Taormina of Tokarski. "He did see a lot of shots, but we didn't really get in front to screen him."

    Rough result in Montreal.

    SYR-1
    HAM-4

    Cedrick Desjardins allowed 3 goals on 26 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    HAM Blunden, (4) (Dumont, Tinordi), 15:55

    Second Period
    HAM Ellis, (1) (St. Pierre, Nystrom), 11:00
    HAM Dumont, (1) (Blunden), 13:06

    Third Period
    SYR Cote, (2) (Richard, Paradis), 15:13
    HAM Blunden, (5) (Ellis), 19:00 (EN)

    Tonight was a special game with the Bulldogs playing in front of the big league crowd in Montreal. Between that an Dustin Tokarski's obvious motivation playing against his old organization, Hamilton had some extra juice for this one.

    These two clubs square off again tomorrow night, and Syracuse should have Brett Connolly in the lineup.

    Update:
    Following the game Crunch GM Julien BriseBois confirmed Vladislav Namestnikov broke his hand in tonight's game.

    Cedrick Desjardins stopped 32 shots during regulation and overtime, as well as three out of four shootout attempts, but the Syracuse Crunch fell to the Albany Devils, 2-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    "Cedrick was the reason we got one point tonight," said Syracuse coach Rob Zettler. "We gave up a number of Grade A chances, including breakaways and point blank shots that we normally don't give up...He came up huge for us."

    "We battled hard, gave everything we've got," Desjardins said. "But we fell a little short."

    CDJ bested in a goaltender's duel.

    ALB-2
    SYR-1 (SO)

    Cedrick Desjardins allowed 1 goal on 33 shots before allowing 1 of 4 shooters to convert to take the shootout loss.

    Second Period

    Shootout
    ALB- Boucher
    SYR- NONE

    Desjardins was the game's second star.

    Both goaltenders played really well and it took a laser from Kucherov to get anything at all on Kincaid. These games happen over the course of the year. The key is to not start cutting it too fine on your chances or overpass just because you've had a little scoring block.

    The Crunch are off until Friday when they'll face Hamilton.

    The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins jumped out to an early lead and held on to snap the Syracuse Crunch's three-game win streak, 5-3, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    The Penguins scored three times in the first period against Crunch goalie Riku Helenius, who played in his first game since being injured Oct. 19.

    "I thought we were rolling a little bit in the first period, and I felt good about it," said Crunch coach Rob Zettler. "Then they had a goal, and boom-boom, they followed it up with a couple more."

    Callups/blueline injuries help crush Crunch.

    WBS-5
    SYR-3

    Riku Helenius allowed 5 goals on 27 shots for the loss in his first start back from injury.

    First Period
    WBS Despres, (3) (Mikkelson), 2:26
    WBS Megna, (4) (Despres, Gibbons), 11:23
    WBS Conner, (6) (Despres, Gibbons), 19:44 (PP)

    Second Period
    SYR Namestnikov, (8) (Kucherov, Cote), 7:29
    WBS Kostopoulos, (5) (Harrington, Ebbett), 12:55
    SYR Rankin, (5) (Paquette), 19:41

    Third Period
    WBS Gibbons, (6) (Conner, Zolnierczyk), 1:41
    SYR Gauthier, (2) (Namestnikov), 10:38

    Vladislav Namestnikov was the game's third star. It was kind of a perfect storm against Syracuse with Korobov up in Tampa and Taormina and Nesterov out, along with the top line auditioning a new winger with Brown up and Helenius possibly a little rusty in his first start back. Life in the minors. They'll build off the fact they won the final 40 minutes of the game 3-2. They face Albany tomorrow.

    Still the kings of Norfolk.

    SYR-4
    NOR-0

    Cedrick Desjardins stopped all 19 shots he faced for the shutout and the victory. After the game, Syracuse sent Kristers Gudlevskis down to Florida of the ECHL after Riku Helenius suited up for the backup role tonight.

    First Period
    SYR Namestnikov, (6) (Brown, Nesterov), 5:36 (PP)

    Second Period
    SYR Paquette, (4) (Cote, Korobov), 10:25
    SYR Tyrell, (3) (Angelidis, Walker), 11:13
    SYR Namestnikov, (7) (Paradis, Gauthier), 12:48

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Vladislav Namestnikov, Dana Tyrell, and Desjardins were the game's three stars.

    Can the Syracuse Crunch win games where Nikita Kucherov doesn't appear like a rash all over the scoresheet? They did tonight. Can they get secondary scoring? They did tonight. Can they keep shots and chances down and keep the puck out of the back of their net? They did that all weekend. They answered a lot of lingering questions about their own legitimacy as a team and, in the process, have taken over the top spot in the East Division. They're still 2 points shy of the top spot in the Eastern Conference with a game in hand on Manchester.

    The Crunch move on to face Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Friday.

    Two good teams squared off in a familiar place. Syracuse won this round.

    SYR-2
    NOR-1

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed just 1 goal on 24 shots for the win. He's unbeaten. He has a sub-2 GAA, and a save percentage of .924. I wouldn't be in a rush to return him to the Coast once Helenius is back up to speed, which begs the question of what the Lightning will choose to do with either Riku or Cedrick, if anything.

    First Period
    SYR Brown, (4) (Cote, Sergeev), 1:53
    NOR Whitney, (4) (Steckel), 14:29

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    SYR Kucherov, (12) (Namestnikov), 17:58

    Nikita Kucherov and Gudlevskis were the game's first and second stars. In my mind, the Lightning have an obvious dilemma coming up next season. By the time we roll into training camp next year, it's going to be fairly obvious that Jonathan Drouin, Kucherov, and Vladislav Namestnikov will be ready for Tampa Bay. Opening up 3 spots in Tampa Bay will be very challenging.

    Norfolk's had a strong start to the season, so this was a high-quality win for Syracuse. The two teams are now tied with 17 points heading into the rematch at Scope tomorrow. Syracuse is now 1 point back of the top spot in the East Division and 2 points back for the Eastern Conference lead after a slow start to their campaign. That's not bad considering the lack of a consistent second line and the lack of consistent play on the backline. Wait 'til Zettler gets those pieces in shape.
