    The return of The Entertainer.

    SYR-5
    ALB-3

    Cedrick "The Entertainer" Desjardins made his Crunch debut stopping 23 of 26 for the win. Riku Helenius, who was named the AHL Player of the Week, got the night off.

    SYR Tyrell, (3) (Hutchings, Angelidis), 9:40

    SYR Connolly, (22) , 19:57 (EN)

    Tyler Johnson and Ondrej Palat (pictured) were the game's first and third stars. Palat's 29 assists are tied for 6th most in the league while Johnson is now tied for the lead in goals.

    So, after a month of struggling to regain their equilibrium, lookee at the standings and Syracuse is right back on top of the Eastern Conference standings, moving 1 point ahead of Bingo and Springfield. Jon Cooper = Jedi. Syracuse draws the Toronto Marlies on Wednesday.

    Riku is hulking up.

    SYR-3
    WBS-0

    Riku Helenius (pictured) stopped all 23 shots he faced for his 2nd shutout in the past 3 games and his 4th shutout of the season. He's allowed just 1 goal over the span of those 3 games. We've seen this before with Helenius, when he had a string of shutouts early in the season for JYP en route to backstopping them to a SM-liiga title. His save percentage is still just .891 for the season, and the Lightning just acquired Cedrick Desjardins for a reason, but when Riku starts getting on a roll like this, he can be unbelievable.

    Jon Cooper must be a Jedi.

    SYR-7
    BNG-1

    Riku Helenius (pictured) allowed 1 goal on 34 shots for the victory. His season save percentage is still languishing at .885, but he's only allowed 1 goal over his last 2 starts and has stopped 56 of 57 shots in that span. There's not a huge opening for Helenius, but with Tokarski gone, if he can take the #1 job in Syracuse and run with it for a great second half and a deep playoff run, he could set himself up to the NHL.

    First Period
    SYR Connolly, (20) (Tyrell), 3:51 (PP)

    Third Period
    SYR Wyman, (9) (Connolly, Barberio), 4:40
    SYR Tyrell, (2) (Wyman, Gudas), 19:23 (PP)

    J.T. Wyman, Brett Connolly, and Helenius were the game's three stars.

    Connolly becomes the third Crunch player to hit 20 goals this season (Johnson and Panik). Dana Tyrell has 3 points in 3 games since being sent down to the AHL. After posting two straight multi-point games, Radko Gudas is just 3 points shy of his pro high in points. He's also 6 PIMs shy of his pro high in penalty minutes, too, for that matter.

    Entering the night, Binghamton was tied for the top spot in the Eastern Conference, and Syracuse just smashed them after destroying Albany 6-0 on Wednesday night. Whatever voodoo potion Jon Cooper employed to not only weather all the call ups, the trade of his #1 goaltender, and the lineup shuffling, but to start annihilating teams in the midst of it all, he needs to Fedex a supply to Guy Boucher.

    Syracuse draws Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Sunday.

    Last night's collapse continues into today's match.

    SYR-1
    ADK-6

    Riku Helenius allowed 4 goals on 14 shots for the loss before giving way to Dustin Tokarski, who allowed 2 on 12 shots the rest of the way. At some point you'd like one of your two championship pedigree goaltenders to step up and act like it and steal you a game rather than getting lit up like Roman candles.

    First Period
    ADK Gustafsson, (4) , 7:02

    Second Period
    ADK Mangene, (2) (Sim), 0:37
    ADK Dimmen, (3) (Mangene, Sim), 10:56
    ADK Laliberte, (2) (Syvret, Akeson), 12:34 (PP)

    Third Period
    ADK Eddy, (2) (Wellwood, Lauridsen), 1:30
    ADK Laliberte, (3) (Akeson, Noebels), 13:21
    SYR Johnson, (23) (Connolly, Neilson), 18:38 (PP)

    This is the kind of embarassing loss where you'd expect Julien BriseBois to start looking to make some moves, now. The Crunch let some valuable veteran components like Segal, Smith, and Jackson walk over the offseason with the thought there was enough good youth to handle it. And, yes, there is a lot of good youth. But, in my mind, a piece needs to be added to, at the very least, try to fill some of what was lost between Conacher and now, possibly, Alex Killorn, to Tampa Bay.

    Third Period choke.

    ALB-4
    SYR-3

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 4 goals on 21 shots. Really, it was 4 goals on 8 shots in the Third Period. Not good.

    Second Period
    SYR Namestnikov, (3) (Wyman, Oberg), 1:39

    ALB Sestito, (7) (Sislo, Wiseman), 17:40
    SYR Johnson, (22) (Connolly), 19:38

    Evan Oberg was the game's third star. Remember Evan Oberg? 5 points in 33 games is almost unthinkable considering how productive and active he was last season.

    What an epic melt down. At least the Crunch finally got Tyler Johnson off the side of the milk carton.

    For Tyler Johnson, it was a game he'd rather just forget.

    Despite tallying a pair of goals to break out of an 11-game drought, the Syracuse Crunch forward had trouble coming up with words to describe the third period.

    The Crunch, who came into the frame with a two-goal lead on the Albany Devils, allowed four straight goals in a 4-3 loss at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday. One night after snapping a two-game losing streak, Syracuse found itself with the same problems that caused it to drop six out of the previous eight.

    "It was just a lot of stupid mistakes, it was uncharacteristic of our team," Johnson said. "I can't really think of a word except horrendous; it just wasn't good. Our effort was there, it was just dumb. We didn't play smart."

    With a subtle pump of the fist, Richard Panik's celebration showed his goal was more alleviating than exhilarating.

    After his team squandered a two-goal lead against the Adirondack Phantoms, the Syracuse Crunch forward picked up a loose puck that ricocheted off a defenseman, and fired it low blocker-side. It wasn't his prettiest, but it counted all the same.

    "I was so relieved that I scored and I put the team in the lead," Panik said.

    The Slovakian winger's team-leading 21st goal of the season stood up as the game-winner, and Philip-Michael Devos added an insurance marker, as the Crunch snapped their two-game losing streak with a 4-2 win at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday night.

    Getting back on track.

    ADK-2
    SYR-4

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 2 goals on 26 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    SYR Angelidis, (7) (Cote), 14:33

    Second Period
    SYR Connolly, (18) (Killorn), 4:20
    ADK FitzGerald, (1) (Syvret), 5:37
    ADK Laliberte, (1) (Akeson, Dimmen), 12:20

    Third Period
    SYR Panik, (21) (Gauthier, Namestnikov), 9:15
    SYR Devos, (3) (Connolly), 17:30

    Richard Panik, Brett Connolly, and Mike Angelidis were the game's three stars. That's some impressive leadership by example by three of the team's best players.

    It was a long week of hard work and soul searching for the Crunch as they continue to try to establish an identity in the post-lockout world. Fortunately, they got a result from their work right out of the chute, which is important to validate what they've put into the process so far and to keep it going.

    Albany comes to town tomorrow. Syracuse moves within 2 points of Binghamton for both the East Division and the Eastern Conference lead.
