    By Jeremy Houghtaling

    One night after playing 65 scoreless minutes, Syracuse took less than 60 seconds to find the back of the net against Providence Saturday.

    Cedric Paquette scored the lone goal 42 seconds in and Kristers Gudlevskis stopped 27 shots for his second-straight shutout, as the Crunch topped the Bruins, 1-0, at the Onondaga County War Memorial.

    With Friday's scoreless contest decided by a shootout, Syracuse knew the rematch would be another close game.

    Connolly remains on fire.

    SYR-4
    WBS-2

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 26 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    SYR Namestnikov, (11) (Connolly, DiSalvatore), 13:17 (PP)
    SYR DiSalvatore, (1) (Connolly, Mormina), 13:47 (PP)

    Second Period
    SYR Connolly, (9) (Nesterov, DiSalvatore), 8:04
    SYR Paquette, (10) (Richard, Witkowski), 8:59

    Third Period
    WBS Samuelsson, (2) (Kuhnhackl, Carman), 15:11

    Jon DiSalvatore and Brett Connolly were the game's first and second stars. Connolly, if you're keeping track at home, just posted his 3rd consecutive 3-point night. He now has 9 goals and 23 points in 24 games. A lot of disappointment has been expressed by Lightning fans based on Connolly's ineffective callup earlier this season, but here's a set of fun facts to consider: 1.) Last season Connolly was a 2nd Team AHL All-Star scoring at a pace of .887 points per game. 2.) This season, despite fears Connolly's development has stagnated, Connolly is now scoring at a .958 points per game clip. My point is this: folks giving up on Connolly might be wise to wait until the next time he gets a cup of coffee with Tampa Bay before drawing any final conclusions, because he's still getting better.

    With the victory, Syracuse climbs back to within 4 points of eighth place in the Eastern Conference. They face Providence on Friday.

    Brett Connolly's game has been simmering nicely the past several weeks in Syracuse, but in his last two games he's gotten white hot. Tonight's 2 goals and 3 points marked the second straight 3 point game for the former first rounder and it included a wonderful individual effort tonight to score a goal to get within 1 and the primary assist on the tying goal. In the last 15 games Connolly has 8 goals and 19 points, and he's starting to close in on a point a game for the season at 20 points in 23 games. After failing to gain traction in his first Tampa Bay cup of coffee this season, Connolly may be making a case for another audition soon.

    Syracuse starts to look like Syracuse again.

    SYR-6
    TOR-3

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 35 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    TOR Ashton, (10) , 14:24 (SH)

    Second Period
    TOR Crescenzi, (1) (Bodie, Holzer), 5:03
    SYR Namestnikov, (9) (Connolly, Olson), 6:00
    SYR Tyrell, (4) (Labrie, Mormina), 19:55

    Third Period
    SYR Paquette, (9) (Tyrell), 3:06
    SYR Connolly, (6) , 5:43
    SYR Labrie, (1) (Paquette, Korobov), 6:39
    TOR Duco, (1) (Bodie), 6:49
    SYR Namestnikov, (10) (Taormina, Connolly), 9:46 (PP)

    Vladislav Namestnikov and Brett Connolly were the game's first and second stars. Just what the doctor ordered. Namestnikov, playing in his second game back from the broken hand, was joined in the lineup by Pierre-Cedric Labrie to go along with previous reinforcement like Tyrell and DiSalvatore and tonight it finally started to click for the beleaguered Crunch. Now, perhaps, the road back to the playoffs can begin.

    Syracuse's win squares their record at 14-14-1-3, 5 points back of Adirondack for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot. The Crunch head to Binghamton tomorrow night trying to put together a streak.

    It came down to a couple bad breaks, but the Syracuse Crunch weren't making any excuses.

    The Norfolk Admirals opened the scoring on a shorthanded tally 5:26 into the game, when a shot went off the face of Crunch defenseman Matt Taormina and sprung Admirals forward Emerson Etem on a breakaway. It was one of a many bounces that didn't go in Syracuse's favor.

    The Crunch battled throughout the latter part of the game -- cutting the Admirals lead to one early in the third period -- but ultimately fell, 6-3, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday. Still, the Syracuse players acknowledged it wasn't luck, it was how they played.

    "You can say unlucky break all you want, but at the end of the day, they shouldn't have had those two shorties at the beginning of the game," said Crunch forward Evan Rankin.

    Brett Connolly rising up.

    SYR-3
    HER-2

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 26 shots for the victory. 10 games into his AHL career he is a very respectable 6-3-1 with 2 shutouts, a 2.38 GAA, and a .916 sv%.

    HER LeBlanc, (7) (Wellman, Byers), 11:40
    SYR Connolly, (4) (Paquette), 11:57

    Second Period
    SYR Walker, (3) (Richard, Nesterov), 8:15
    SYR Connolly, (5) (DiSalvatore, Paquette), 15:07

    Third Period
    HER Strachan, (2) (Wellman, Taffe), 13:09

    Connolly and Gudlevskis were the game's first and second stars. Connolly continues to string together his best statistical output of the season working with Cedric Paquette.

    Note that defenseman Dmitry Korobov was recalled to Tampa before the game.

    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.
